From the luxury of your tented room you'll be able to survey the grasslands and waterways of the Okavango Delta. Due to the camp's position you can enjoy mokoro rides and boat safaris all year, as well as game drives and guided walks, all providing different perspectives on the scenery and wildlife and together forming a comprehensive safari experience.
The camp is made up of just nine tents, two of which are linked by a walkway and can be booked together as a family tent, and never feels crowded. Tents are arranged on either side of the main area, set discreetly under the cover of tall ebony trees. They are on raised wooden platforms and have private decks with far reaching views over the delta, with sunny and covered seating areas and a swing chair. Inside there are shelves and drawers for storage, comfy beds, a supply of drinking water and snacks. Separated from the bedroom and dressing area there's a bathroom with a flush toilet, basin and shower, with an additional outdoor shower.
The social areas of the camp include a lounge with panelled walls and easy chairs, perfect for resting, reading and socialisng, and a separate dining room with doors that can be folded back to reveal sweeping views of the floodplains. Meals are also served al fresco on the deck. A walkway leads to the pool and deck.
