KAPAROTA CAMP - OKAVANGO DELTA,
Kaparota Camp is situated on a tranquil and shady
island in the Vumbura Community Development Concession. The island is
covered with huge sausage trees and a small channel runs in front of the
camp. Herds of Buffalo and Elephant occur here, along with the predators
- Lion, Leopard, Wild Dog and Cheetah. Guests who enjoy their birding
will love the combination of all the Okavango water "specials"
with acacia and dry woodland species. Kaparota Camp is owned and operated
by Wilderness Safaris. Kaparota camp is one of their newer camps and
is located in the same concession as Vumbura Camp
and Little Vumbura.

Five meru-style en suite
tents are raised up on decks, and have wonderful views over the surrounding
islands and floodplains. The bathrooms are enclosed, but roofless. The
thatched dining and pub area is connected to the opposite island by a
walkway bridge, and is raised on a teak deck overlooking the channel.
Lantern-lit dinners are served under the tree canopy. Complimentary laundry
services are provided.
Kaparota offers game drives,
guided walks (at the final discretion of the camp manager), and mokoro
rides. Game drives are conducted in open 4x4 Land Rovers with experienced
guides. Night drives are possible nearly all year, but may be restricted
for a few months in the middle of each year if there are extremely high
flood levels. The variety of wildlife here is stunning. Guests can go
out by boat in the morning and see Hippos, Crocodiles, Red Lechwe and
all the aquatic wildlife - and then travel out by Land Rover in the afternoon
to see Elephant, Sable and all the dry savannah game.
Kaparota has both the wetland and
savannah species of wildlife - Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Elephant and Red
Lechwe are some of the game that may be viewed. Birding in the area is
incredible, and species include White Headed Vulture, African Hawk Eagle,
Roufusnaped Lark, Meyers Parrot, and Pels fishing owl.
