Four of us stayed for four nights at this lovely Okavango camp, which is set in an amazing area that is one moment desert, the next, swamp. We were welcomed by singing staff members, and it set the tone for what was to come. The game viewing was excellent, and all kinds of animals strolled through the camp. One night we were surrounded by elephants, breaking down trees around our tent and harrumphing. I spent a morning "Living with Elephants", which was a wonderful experience. I have a great video of being kissed by a very affectionate elephant!
The manager, guides and staff were all knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended.
