Camp Okavango

Okavango Delta

Rating: Deluxe    

Camp Okavango overview

Named after the largest inland delta in the world, Camp Okavango has 12 spacious suites including a family suite with 2 bedrooms. They are set on elevated wooden decks, and folding doors from the bedroom open out on to the large viewing deck. The bedroom is complimented by an en-suite bathroom with running hot and cold water, a double shower, twin hand basins and a supply of toiletries.

The main area is made up of a series of walkways and decks. There are 2 lounges, a cosy library, an elegant dining room and an honesty bar. There is plenty of outdoor desk space, too, where you can sit and enjoy the views, including 2 firepits both with seating, and a shaded sitting area.
