Camp Okavango

Exclusive safari camp on the remote Nxaragha Island

A year-round water wilderness experience in the heart of the Okavango Delta

Camp Okavango sits in the centre of the permanent Okavango Delta on Nxaragha Island giving guests a captivating and traditionally wild safari experience.

It accommodates just 24 guests, ensuring a peaceful and comfortable safari experience. There are 11 safari suites and one family suite consisting of two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The suites have been built on individual raised wooden platforms and are set beneath the cooling Okavango Delta vegetation. The en-suite bathrooms have double vanities, double shower and a separate loo. The sliding doors open onto a private open-air viewing deck offering beautiful views over the Okavango Delta.

The camp’s main area comprises a network of interconnected walkways that link the two lounge areas, dining room, library, self-service bar and curio shop. Sweeping ramps lead to the lower level deck with two open-air fire pits and comfortable seating areas. There is another deck with a rim flow swimming pool and thatched lounge deck for the warm summer days.

With its location in the delta, this charming camp offers a number of water-based game viewing excursions which are all led by expert professional guides. Activities include motorboat trips, mokoro tours, plus guided bush walks where guests can witness exciting land-based wildlife. After an eventful day, unwind at Camp Okavango’s main lodge. Here, guests can enjoy a drink at the cocktail bar, relax in the lounge, feast on tasty fare in the dining room, or read up on local wildlife at the reference library.

Places to combine Camp Okavango with

The Kruger

Royal Malewane
In homage to the glamorous and opulent colonial era that most associate with the safari, Royal Malewane modestly and practically recreates this traditional, authentic and very special African experience. Situated in the Hoedspruit private reserve of 13,000 hectares incorporated into the Kruger National Park, wildlife is the Big Five and the size of the camp means your game drives are very personal. Intimate and secluded finery pretty much sums up this luxury lodge of only eight suites (including two Royal Suites) which are all wondrously spacious and open plan yet never compromise on your privacy. All are decorated in the sumptuous style of the early 20th century; dark woods, mahogany furniture, Victorian rolltop baths, 4-poster beds, travelling chests, fireplaces and Persian rugs. Each has its own rim-flow pool, wooden decks and gazebos and the Royal Suites enjoy a private lounge and dining room not to mention a complimentary butler, chef and massages. All the rooms are linked by risen walkways to the main camp. This elevated position of the lodge also means you need only look out your window or look up from your plate to see the sights of the bush and animals passing by. And there’s also a fantastic Spa and walled swimming pool that is reminiscent of a Moroccan rhiad. For a family or group of friends looking for the finest in luxury lodgings and privacy, Royal Malewane’s 12-person Africa House located just two minutes from the main lodge is at the height of secluded refinement and stellar personal service, and available to be hired exclusively. The house is bedecked with art and antiques from all over the world and decorated sumptuously with good use of vibrant colours. There is a central courtyard, fountain, veranda with infinity pool, private chef, butler, housekeeper and your game drives are all with your very own ranger, tracker and vehicles bespoke to you. The dining and service is both very detailed and exceptional here at the Royal Malewane, all in all creating a magical and most lavish safari experience.
