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 a local village, home to the guides, and to interact with the people there.
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.
Situated on the South Western edge of Chief’s Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta, is Delta Camp - set in the forest of a large, beautiful and palm-studded island.
Accommodation is for 16 guests only 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 is also one of a few establishments that do accommodate children and accordingly families are most welcome.
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.
Delta Camp adheres to a philosophy that guests may enjoy the “luxury” of their own private guide at no extra cost. The guides are true“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) and walking on the many islands in the area, taking in the magnificent scenery and light, and the abundant game- and bird-life of the Okavango.
