CAMP OKAVANGO RATES: Camp Okavango
- OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA
Camp Okavango is situated on remote Nxaragha Island
in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assuring a year-round water
wilderness experience. Botswana's magnificent Okavango Delta is a maze of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering an area of over 16,000 square km in flood and shrinking to less than 9,000 square km in the dry season. Trapped in the parched Kalahari sands the fresh water oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique wilderness.

Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity.

and, as such, includes a diverse habitat that supports a wide variety
of animals, with possible sightings of Wild Dog, Cheetah and Leopard being
highlights. Resident species include Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Hippo, Giraffe,
Hyena, Zebra, Kudu, Red Lechwe, Sable and Roan Antelope and many more.
