The Okavango Delta is a conundrum, a contradiction of 16000 square km of crystal clear channels, serene lagoons and a myriad of islands; this unique wetland system survives atop the sands of the vast Kalahari Desert. It is fed by the mighty Okavango River, which flows southeast from the Angolan highlands, to flood the Delta on a perennial and annual cycle. The water wilderness of the Okavango Delta offers a safe haven for innumerable bird and wildlife species. The elusive Sitatunga Antelope has found refuge in this pristine wetland ecosystem, while birds such as the Africa Fish Eagle, Pel's Fishing Owl and many others are magnificent in their spectacular display. Situated on remote Nxaragha Island in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta.
How to get there: Your arrival at Camp Okavango will be arranged for you by co-ordinating a transfer by means of light aircraft charter. These air transfers operate from either Maun, Kasane (to which you will be transferred to by road, if travelling from Livingstone or Victoria Falls) or any of the other camps or lodges in Botswana. These air transfers operate on a seat in charter basis which might include a stop at certain camp airstrips in Botswana to either drop off or pick up other travellers. At your request, private air charters can be arranged on your behalf which will take you directly to Camp Okavango from any destination in Botswana.
When travelling to Camp Okavango from Camp Moremi or Xugana Island Lodge, we strongly recommend that this transfer be done by boat. This provides the opportunity for you to experience the multitude of serpentine streams that form the Okavango Delta and this transfer is a true activity in its own right. Visits to the heron breeding areas on Gadikwe and Xakanaxa lagoons are included in the transfer from Camp Moremi. This also includes possible opportunities to see other potential wildlife sightings along the way.
