Situated on the south western edge of Chiefʼs Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta, is Delta Camp.The camp is set in the forest of a large, beautiful and palm-studded island.
The Okavango Delta, with its crystal-clear channels, lagoons, sweeping floodplains and countless islands, is home to over 450 bird species, a spectacular array of plant species and the full spectrum of African game.
The Okavango has earned its reputation as one of the world’s premier wilderness areas.
The focus is on peace and tranquility (stalking game on foot provides all the excitement one could wish for) and guests are actively encouraged to visit the local village, home to the guides, and to interact with the people there.
Dine in the elegant dining room overlooking the sweep of the Delta, viewing the surrounding flood-plains and the wildlife that abounds. Another option is to take a beautifully prepared picnic on to one of the many nearby islands for a secluded and intimate experience.
For those who do not know, Delta Camp offers arguably the purest Traditional Okavango Delta experience – each of the 7 chalets is assigned its very own private guide to explore the area around Chiefʼs Island on mokoro and on foot.
Traditional safari experience with your own private guide, luxurious accommodation and fantastic price = Great product!
The choice of fresh vegetables, cheeses, excellent meats and fine wines flown in daily and lovingly prepared, maintain the camp’s enviable reputation for cuisine.
Accommodation is for only 14 guests in spacious ‘lethaka’ (reed) chalets with en- suite facilities.Built of natural materials and elevated off the forest floor, each chalet has hot and cold running water, a shower with a view, and solar-powered electric lighting.
The amazing design of the chalets is such that you enjoy the luxuries of a ‘top rate’ hotel, but without affecting the environment; you will find you share your chalet with the trees while taking full advantage of the views of the surrounding bush and flood-plains.
Delta Camp adheres to a philosophy that guests may enjoy the “luxury” of their own private guide at no extra cost. The guides are truly “locals” – this is a man of the swamp, born and raised in the area and you will spend your days in his mokoro (dug-out canoe). You will also walk on some of the many islands in the area and take in the magnificent scenery and light as well as the abundant game and bird-life of the Okavango.
Delta Camp is also one of a few camps that accommodate children and thus families are most welcome.
Delta Camp engenders in its staff and guests alike an acute awareness of the ecological sensitivity of this magnificent area.Bio-degradable products have been sourced and are used, careful separation and treatment of refuse ensures that nothing that is not fully bio-degradable stays on the island. Light aircraft remove cans, bottles and the like from the Okavango altogether- thus the staff and guests are continuously contributing towards a healthier environment.
