Camp Okavango

A hidden gem

Deep within the delta's maze of lagoons, large lakes and hidden, meandering channels. Camp Okavango, is a unique and exclusive African safari camp situated on the remote Nxaragha Island.

This hidden gem consists of just twelve suites ensuring a peaceful and genuine safari experience. Step outside the doors onto your own open-air viewing deck offering beautiful views over the Okavango Delta. You’ll find plenty of places to relax dotted around the camp and a pool to cool down in on those hotter days.

Here you are right in the heart of the delta. Spend your days roaming around the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the quiet old-fashioned way, in the traditional mokoro. You can also track down the delta’s wildlife on foot before returning for a sundowner in the camp's open-air fire pits and comfortable seating areas to relax and take in the natural surroundings.
