Accommodation in Okavango Delta

The water wonderland that is the Okavango Delta is a world-renowned safari haven, and accommodation can be within the Moremi Game Reserve (a world heritage site and possibly the world's greatest game viewing destination), and elsewhere in the delta

In the Okavango Delta, there are a range of accommodation options, but most of them, concentrated around the boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve, are the luxury safari camps. The non-luxury options are generally in the outer regions in the eastern section of the delta, and some in the northern-most section of The Panhandle - great for fishing.

There are a plenty of basic campsites at the South Gate, Khwai Gate, Xakanaka and Third Bridge. These are ideal for self-drivers who self-cater and only need a place to cook and ablution facilities. Although activities are not included, you can book a mokoro canoe trip as well as a boat ride when the water level is high enough. Other activities include game drives and bush walks.

Also near the entrance gates are a couple of tented camps and lodges, which offer affordable accommodation, great for those who don't want to carry all the equipment. Third Bridge offers elevated en-suite safari tents on a self-catering basis. The Panhandle area also has some lower end lodges and fishing camps.

Luxury Accommodation in Okavango Delta

There are plenty of luxury camps both within and outside the borders of the Moremi Game Reserve. These are typically on private concessions, and they pamper guests with delicious food and a range of activities included in the price. The private concessions do not get traffic from tour operators or other camps, and so guests staying at these camps have exclusive experiences. Around Chief's Island, there are actually very few camps - five to be exact. Mombo Camp, Little Mombo and Mombo Trails are on the northern ridge of the island. Sanctuary Chief's Camp is right in the heart of the island. On the southern edge of the island is Sanctuary Stanley Camp. Other luxury camps are dotted around outside the perimeter of the island as well as along the border of the Moremi Game Reserve.

Outside the Delta

There are other lodges which are suited for those who want to drive in and out and not necessarily stay within the delta. There are several budget options - self-catering, camps and B & B's, on the Maun-Okavango road. Along the Thamalakane River which runs adjacent to the Maun-Okavango road, there are a few reasonably priced lodges such as Okavango River Lodge and Island Safari Lodge.
