My wife and me did enjoy the friendliness of the staff and the great choir they have . Not many wild animals, It's not the best place to stay if you want to see Lions/predators. Definitely a good place instead if you want to spend a fee days in absolute relax

Not the most exciting or best quality camp option in Bostwana but a great staff that are friendly. While not a spot for seeing big game it does offer a relaxing trip on the delta by canoe and chance to walk . The camp is really in need of a refurbishment in the rooms and facilities.

Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the whole experience, mokoro trip (with midges), really enjoyed the two walking safaris and got quite close to elephants etc. Our guides were excellent, very knowledgable and friendly. The tented accommodation was very good and great food - saw lots of wonderful birdlife in and around the area.

I've written reviews of the other two camps I visited, Savute Safari Lodge and Laroo La Tau, but when it comes to Camp O. some additional perspective is necessary. It is the home of John Carter, a Bayai (northern Botswana) tribal elder, a living legend who has trained more trackers and guides than anyone else in Southern Africa. Born and... More

A beautiful peaceful setting. A trip on a moroko is a must - so relaxing. The guides were very helpful, we stated that we had a special interest in birds - wow, did they know their stuff and were so enthusiastic. The walkign safaris were wonderful and a different kind of safari to what I'm used to. Saw elephants, leches,... More

In the heart of the Okavango, this camp exceeded expectation. Fabulous accommodation and food. Walking safaris led by local Botswanian guides who knew their birds and wildlife and kept a cool head when faced with elephants and other giants of Africa. What an experience. Knocked spots off the sanitised "big 5" jeep safaris in Kruger.

We had a fabulous time, and could not recommend more highly. The staff were great, service fantastic and food delicious. Walking safari incredible despite rain on one day! And could not recommend the boat trip more highly. Beautiful. Mona, Ernie and Robin and their team work hard to make it a great experience and our guide Toffee was fabulous, highly... More

Out of the 4 places I stayed this was the easily the bottom of the list. The facility is tired, the service failed in comparison to any other lodge, and the management poor. There didn't seem to be quite enough food to feed all the guests (definitely first come, first serve). The one saving grace was the walking safari which... More
