The New Camp Okavango Opens

Desert & Delta Safaris has great pleasure in announcing that construction of the new Camp Okavango is now complete and we welcomed our first guests back to our Okavango Delta paradise on Nxaragha Island on the 14 April 2016.

The rebuild of Camp Okavango took a total of 5 months which began with the complete removal of the original camps infrastructure. The new camp has moved to the edge of the Nxaragha Island to take advantage of the impressive delta scenery but kept within the original camps general location to ensure there was minimal impact on the environment during construction.

Chobe Game Lodge - Closure 1st - 17th December 2016

Each package will be offered with three rates tiers:On the 1st of December 2016 - Chobe Game Lodge will be closing for 17 days.

We will be using this closure period to make significant changes to the rooms in the main area of the lodge. These rooms will be converted to include larger living rooms, improved views of the river, renovated bathrooms and a complete redecoration of the interiors.

The project will be completed by 1st April 2017. Demolition or disruptive work will take place during closure and therefore guests will not be affected during the remaining period of work.
Meanwhile on the Chobe Deck of Fame...join us LIVE!

Those of you who have visited Chobe Game Lodge before will know what a remarkable spot the Chobe Deck is. Well over 200 meters of raised boardwalk following the Chobe River's edge culminate to what has become otherwise known as the Chobe Deck of Fame.

This eastern facing deck overlooks arguably the highest concentration of elephant herds in Africa with stunning views across the Chobe River and floodplains. You can now tune in ANY TIME by accessing our webcam link online. Don't forget the tag #ChobeDeckofFame.

Camp Moremi, Camp Okavango and Savute Safari Lodge Family Rooms

In February during our annual camp closure we began building family rooms at Camp Moremi, Camp Okavango and Savute Safari Lodge. We are delighted to announce that these family rooms were completed on time and and have already started welcoming families. 

At each camp we converted one or our existing guest rooms into a family unit which means the room allocation at Camp Moremi, Camp Okavango and Savute Safari Lodge has now changed to eleven standard rooms and one family unit. The new family rooms include two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and inter-leading doors allowing for easy access from within the unit.
