We had two nights here as the second stop in our trip through Botswana. It was very different to Chobe and to Leroo La Tau but because of its position in the delta it was quite refreshing being on water as opposed to land. The ability also to do a short walking safari was also great. Being serenaded into dinner by all the staff was such a unique and thrilling experience that it will live in my memory forever.

Camp Okavango was the final safari location after a 3 week stay in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. It was different than all the others because of the location in the Okavango Delta. The canoe trip and walks trough the islands made me feel that I had returned to the beginning of time and this was what life was like before civilizations took hold. The Islands and wetlands were so tranquil and visually spectacular. But, what made all this so pleasant was our guide Chilli B. who was an incredible guide and host of the land. He is remarkably knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the delta; plus he has a great sense of humor and ability to connect with his guests. The entire staff were so welcoming and helpful. The dining was great and singing and dancing at the evening campfire was a treat. We could not have been more pleased with our stay.

We had 3 nights here - 2 was plenty really. On the plus side the 'Mokoro' punt around the shallows with waterlilies, frogs and silence was sublime and the motorised boat trips through the papyrus exhilarating with crocs, hippos and kingfishers etc. The change of venue - ie out on boats and not trucks was a nice change but the tented huts were not up to standard of other camps and didn't have good views - just foliage and trees. There is no chair for clothes, the wardrobe is difficult to open and the only other option is to hang clothes from the 'blind hooks'. When the generator went off at night the battery lamps were not bright enough and 'torch hunts' were necessary. The balcony chairs were uncomfortable and were wooden 'camping' chairs & very narrow - not sun beds as elsewhere - presumably due to visiting baboons and probable damage but could at least be comfortable. The mozzy net hung from the ceiling wasn't big enough to encircle the bed without gaps! This was more a camping location than a lodge. We had been truly spoilt elsewhere in the group and this lodge badly needs an upgrade. Hospitalitywise the guides were excellent though complacent - it was worrying to be stationary 2' from a 2 metre croc on the bank with no protection should it have launched at the boat - with them assuming as it hasn't lunged far so there's no problem! Again unlike other lodges we had to chase for drink refills and didn't feel as spoilt as at others. Worth a visit but not a return!

Room tip: Tents are just in the jungle - only the honeymoon tent views out towards the water

You feel like part of the family at Camp Okavango.
There is no mobile coverage, no tv or wifi, but it is a fantastic nature experience.
You feel like an explorer in Africa.
Food and drinks are exceptional good out here in the Delta.

Room tip: All tent/cabins have bath and a porch with views of nature and wildlife

The people here were so kind and knowledgeable. The staff was always willing to go above and beyond to make you comfortable/happy. The location was beautiful and the wildlife was diverse and plentiful. I even saw a leopard walk through camp one night! Amazing experience. Go go go!
