Nxaragha Island – Okavango Delta
Camp Okavango, a unique and exclusive African safari camp, is situated on the remote Nxaragha Island. This hidden treasure, in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assures its guests of an unparalleled year-round water wilderness experience.
Recently re-built the lodge is located on Nxaraga Island deep within the Okavango Delta. Nestled amongst an extensive maze of reed-lined water channels the area epitomizes tranquility and remoteness. Only accessible by light aircraft, on landing there is a short walk to the main reception and chalets. The camp is located in the private Shindi Concession meaning less restrictions to safari activities.
Morning and afternoon game drives, walking safaris on one of the nearby islands as well as boat and mokoro excursions ensure a complete and varied safari experience. Children 6 years and older are welcome. By far the most exhilarating experience we had was the walking safari and motor boat trips through the channels of the Delta.
A rim flow swimming pool with attached lounge deck is prefect for cooling off and game viewing at the same time.
The chalets at Camp Okavango have all been recently renovated and comprise 11 spacious and comfortable safari suites built on raised platforms amongst the trees’. Each Chalet has a private deck with stunning views over the Delta and an en-suite bathroom with double shower and toilet. 24-hour solar generated power is provided for the fans.
One family suite has two bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom.
