We're really excited to be compiling another itinerary for Botswana today for clients from Colorado.
This trip is very short (sadly!) but the clients will at least be spending three nights at Delta Camp, Chief's Island, in the Okavango Delta. We're very jealous!
Delta Camp is set amongst the trees of the in the forest of a large, beautiful and palm-studded island on the south western edge of Chief’s Island, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta. In the flood season, it feels positively tropical, in total contrast to the aridity of the Kalahari, yet not even 1000km away.
A particularly attractive feature of Delta Camp is that each suite enjoys the luxury of its own private guide. Just like at Deception Valley Lodge (another of our top picks for Botswana), all the guides are from the local community, born and raised in the area which they guide you around. They are all professionally trained and are fully qualified, with the emphasis always on training local people to guide professionally, but adding their own indigenous knowledge into your experience. Guests have ended up building life-long friendships with their guides at Delta Camp.
Pricing starts at R24 000 (US$1 7 00) per night for two guests sharing, fully inclusive of all meals, and private guiding.
