This small, intimate camp embodies all that is best about the Okavango Delta – breathtaking beauty, remote, peaceful island location, abundant game and varied landscapes. Add in the warm hospitality of the people of this region – who are stakeholders in the ecotourism success story of the Okavango – and you have a winning (and beautiful) combination. With access to varied, game-rich habitats, this six-tented camp nestles beneath the trees of an ancient island forest. A floating jetty connects land with water, and the wildlife experience can include sightings of sable and wild dog. - INSIDER TIP - Float along a crystal-clear Okavango waterway by mokoro as you scan for reed frogs and waterlilies. The hot air balloon safari is another highlight for seeing wildlife from new heights!
‘DumaTau’ means ‘roar of the lion,’ but it is likely to be the elephants which make the greatest impression here. Its location in the Linyanti and on the banks of Osprey Lagoon position it squarely at the epicentre of Botswana’s elephant herds that are dotted across the northern regions. Other wildlife abounds, and there is a great variety of species to be seen in the contrasting habitats. Eight twin guest tents and two family tents have views over the lagoon, and the floating sundowner deck symbolises the light footprint of a camp run solely on solar power. - INSIDER TIP - The Linyanti is recognised as an IBA (Important Bird Area), so the hides and platforms in the area are ideal for bird watching and photographing wildlife.
A modern-style safari camp that wouldn’t look out of place in an architecture magazine, Vumbura Plains is designed and operated in total empathy with its diverse surroundings. Partnerships with local communities in this region of the Okavango Delta have created empowerment opportunities while allowing guests access to its many treasures. Fourteen light, airy guest rooms feature designer fittings and touches of unabashed luxury, including private plunge pools and salas, and indoor and outdoor showers. Safari activities focus on day and night game drives through a variety of game-rich terrains. Seasonal water activities can be very rewarding, to say nothing of a hot air balloon safari. - INSIDER TIP - Secure a spot at the telescope for exceptional viewing of birds and wildlife. If you are lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the resident otter family!
Chitabe’s location places it at the heart of a complex and beautiful mosaic of habitats, and this diversity results in Chitabe being one of the most storied of all Botswana’s areas. Experienced, passionate guides are inspired by the intricate and dynamic landscapes to deliver wildlife experiences few other locations can match. Eight elevated, Meru-style guest tents provide the perfect human habitat, while a stroll along the elevated walkways connecting them to the main area is a safari experience in itself. Day and night drives and guided walks showcase the varied wildlife and landscapes of the Okavango margins. - INSIDER TIP - Learn more about the wild dog packs of the area; if you’re lucky you’ll see some of these endangered carnivores.
