Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta is a maze of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering an area of over 16,000 square
km in flood and shrinking to less than 9,000 square km in the dry season. Trapped in the parched Kalahari sands the fresh water
oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique wilderness.
Camp Okavango is situated on the remote Nxaragha Island in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assuring a year-round
water wilderness experience.

dining room leads onto an expansive open-air patio for evenings around the fireside. Other facilities include a secluded birdviewing
hide and a sun-kissed deck with plunge pool for relaxing during the hot midday hours.
