Due to its location in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Camp Okavango offers a range of activities focused on exploring the uniqueness of the Okavango Delta waterways and surrounding islands.
Guided excursions through the deeper channels and lagoons of the Okavango Delta in hard-bottom aluminium boats. The boats are equipped with comfortable seats, a foldaway canvas roof and life jackets.
Guided mokoro excursions in traditional dug-out canoes through the shallower channels and floodplains of the Okavango Delta are an excellent way to enjoy the area.
Bush walks on the surrounding islands allow you to track the larger species that inhabit this watery wilderness. Guided walks are conducted in small groups with two guides.
Optional fishing excursions are available (tiger, African pike and bream) on a seasonal basis, and all fishing equipment is available at the lodge.
Scenic helicopter flights over the Delta are also available from Camp Okavango at an additional charge.
