We spent two nights at Delta Camp and couldn't believe our luck when we learned that we would sleep in the tree house. This was amazing! Sleeping high up in the tree with the fresh breeze all night and the most beautiful sunrise to wake us up in the morning. Our guide was FNB. The delta was very dry when we were there and we couldn't use the mokoro, so we did hiking safaris. This was the most amazing experience to be face to face with the animals, trusting our guide that he would be able to read them and keep us safe. He did! In a way it felt like the only right way to explore this country. Thank you, Delta Camp team, for organizing this lovely birthday party for me - with cake and champagne, songs and dance! I will always remember!

Dear Margit, Thank you for taking the time to share your great experience and write a review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the tree house, which really is a special and unique room and a very special place to wake up on your birthday. The water level variations and the change in seasons all have their own highlights and it is great to hear that FNB was able to share the dry season highlights with you on foot. We hope that your memories do stay strong in your mind and we hope you return to Botswana again one day.

My wife and I visited in August 2019 and had the best time of our lives. The walking safaris were exhilarating! Spotting or close encounters with wild Elephants, Hyenas, Lions, Hippos, Buffalo, Zebra and lots of Antelope! We were a little hesitant at first with our Guide's "lack of weapons"! However, Richard our guide explained to us how to deal with wild encounters, led us and we had so much fun! Also sitting on Mokoros to get from place to place was very relaxing even though there might have been Hippos or Crocs lurking ^^ The Delta Camp is an amazing place to be. We stayed in the Tree House and definitely hope you try to get this too. The staff - African hospitality cannot be compared! If you have to visit one place in Botswana, this will be it. P.s. the flights in were also very fun.

Delta Camp has a lovely setting in the Okavango. The rooms are great, although with only 3 sides and a front open to the Delta, it can seem a bit disconcerting! However, we slept peacefully, nodding off to the cries of hyena. One of our party stayed in the treehouse and loved it. Note that the bathroom in the treehouse is on one level and the bedroom on another, so if you need to use the facilities in the night, this might not be your best choice! There is no charging of phones/camera in the room but the lodge has a place for that. As well, you can lock up valuables in the lodge. The food was plentiful and excellent! They were very accommodating of our vegan/vegetarian dietary needs. The water levels were very low but we did some traveling by mokoro which is a unique experience. Most of the time we did walking safaris which is a great way to get close to nature. As the individuals in our party were aged 62-70, they did a nice job of meeting our energy levels ... although we did some fast trekking one afternoon to locate a lion. And we got VERY close to her ... close enough that we got a loud growl from her which froze us all in our tracks! The staff was friendly and did a great job of taking care of us. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review of Delta Camp and sharing some tips for others based on your stay. The tree house is a special experience but for those who do not want to be climbing stairs in the dark one of our other lower tree houses would be a better choice. Each one is unique and so there is s room for everyone. The open fronts do take some time to get used to and there are flaps to close the room for those who really do feel uncomfortable but most people are like you and enjoy falling asleep to the open air and the night noises. The water levels in 2019 were the lowest in the last decade but we are very pleased to have had an average flood year this year. I am glad that despite the low water you did get a mokoro experience however short and it does sound like your lion interaction will be a memory for life. Thank you for your recommendation and helping future travelers with your great tips.

Everything about this camp was beyond my imagining and wonderful in every way. It's design feels like an embrace of nature, and their safari style is up close and personal. I loved game drives at other camps, but walking with a guide here, one on one in nature, no noise, no motors, just man in the natural environment with the animals was awe inspiring. I often had to pinch myself. My guide was so calm, expert and sensitive, to both me and the animals! The dug-out canoe he paddled along in (called a mokoro) he carved himself and from the vantage point of the shallow water in the silence it was heavenly. I loved everything about this camp, people, food, accommodations, and the other the guests, (who are all put in such a good mood here.) But what makes it stand out most, it's uniqueness among camps, was seeing the wildlife in a pure and unmechanized way. I think it is what makes the animals so close. The elephants feel the loving vibe here! There are many animals who seem to feel comfortable living around in the Delta Camp, a wonderful co-existence! This was the perfect place to celebrate the holidays, but I plan on returning during another season too! Thank you for this once in a lifetime dream come true!

This was low season in the Okavango Delta when the waterways are narrow channels and the open 'fields' that will be covered in water from June - September are dry. We couldn't enjoy the long mokoro trips of the high season, but we walked from the camp for 3 hours every morning and evening with our personal guide. This was so much more exciting than sitting in a game drive vehicle, even if we didn't get as close to so many animals. But we did get close to many brilliant birds. Hearing the howls and snarls of a lion kill from our tree house at night, and then setting out on foot at sunrise to find it, was really thrilling. And we literally couldn't have been closer to wild animals since there are no barriers to them entering the camp, so we shared it with elephants day and night, and hippos, hyenas, giraffe and buffalo in the dark. To be woken by a snorting hippo under your tree is a marvellous experience, and the peaceful co-existence of wild creatures and humans in this camp is inspiring. We spent 4 nights in the extraordinary tree house, in sunshine and thunderstorms, and wouldn't swap it for the most luxurious 5-star hotel in the world. It has electric light, a flushing loo and a hot shower. It is a magical place - even when a monkey stole an iPhone and might have escaped with it. But since it couldn't get a signal (no phones or wifi here) it dropped it in the soft sand under the tree, no harm done. We were extremely well looked after by manager Mat and his staff. There is not one thing I could find fault with during our unforgettable stay here.
