The Okavango Delta is one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness areas of Africa. The water from the Okavango River fans out into the Okavango Delta forming a wetland system of beautiful palm-fringed channels, lagoons and islands that support a wealth of fauna and flora alike.
The Luxury Safari Tents overlook a scenic lagoon and are quietly nestled under a grove of shady trees. Sit around the camp fire each night as bushlore anecdotes are recounted, whilst a gracious meal is prepared and elegant wines uncorked. In the main thatched building you will find a cozy bar, lounge and table settings for imaginative meals prepared by safari chefs.
