Over Camp Okavango
Het unieke Camp Okavango ligt op Nxaragha Island en bestaat uit ruime safaritenten die op verhoogde platforms zijn gebouwd. Al uw maaltijden, lokale drankjes en safari-activiteiten zijn inbegrepen. Op het terrein bevinden zich een klein zwembad, een lounge, een bar en een eetruimte die uitkomt op een grote open ruimte waar men 's avonds een kampvuur ontsteekt. Daarnaast ligt er, verscholen aan de waterkant, een prachtig houten terras vanwaar u een magnifiek zicht heeft op de delta. Met een verrekijker ziet u vrijwel zeker nijlpaarden. U kunt de delta verkennen per mokoro of per motorboot. U vaart door een waar doolhof van kanaaltjes, langs kragen van papyrusplanten, over plassen met waterlelies. Soms ziet u otters en nijlpaarden of een kudde olifanten die de rivier oversteekt.

Gelegen in het hart van de Okavango Delta.
- Game drives
De Okavango Delta is een absolute 'must see' tijdens uw reis door Botswana. In de delta leven enorm veel dieren. Okavango vormt zonder twijfel een van de laatste vrijwel ongerepte natuurgebieden ter wereld.
Van het Angolese hoogland stroomt de Okavango-rivier zuidwaarts, via het noorden van Namibië naar de vlakten van Noord-Botswana. Hier loopt het water uit over de Kalahariwoestijn en vormt het de grootste inlandige delta van de wereld: een labyrint van duizenden grote en kleine stromen en kreken, die kleine eilandjes omringen.
De Okavango Delta is 15.000 km² groot en bestaat uit uitgestrekte gebieden met papyrusriet, lage vlakke eilandjes bedekt met bomen, kristalheldere waterwegen en palmen.
"Only worth is because of Kennedy's service"
Upon arrival at Savuti we were very disappointed. There is only the bare minimum and it is VERY expensive. You pay for entering the park per person as well as per vehicle and then you still pay for camping. They did not have any wood that we could buy so we could not make a fire that evening and they also did not have ice. The campsite is not fenced so the wild animals come into the site during the day and at night. This is great as this is the type of experience we went to Botswana for. The ablutions looks like a jail as they have to keep the animals out. The lighting in the bathrooms were very poor, but other than that they are clean and there is warm water, but it is solar run so nit always very warm. You also cannot go to the bathroom in the evening due to the animals. If you do, do not go alone. We were very disappointed, until Kennedy made our stay worth every sent. We went on a sunset drive with him and he was amazing, He went out of his way to show us the lions that were in the are. We sat in the vehicle so close to the lions. I could not have asked for better pictures of these lovely gents. He was so knowledgeable about the animals and the area it was impressive. Then the lions got up and went off to hunt. He recognised their behaviour and we saw them taking down a buffalo. I got a brilliant video of the hunt. Thank you Kennedy. I hope you will see this review and know that you made our stay there worth wile.
"Good facilities, friendly staff, and deep sand at campsites"
As with most of the area, it is extremely sandy. Even the camp sites have deep sand. We saw one lion while we were here. There are mice at the campground. The showers are hot. They sell beer at the tuck stop. The staff was very friendly.
"Beautiful camp facilities. "
Camp Savuti is a beautiful camp in the Chobe region. The rooms are large and the decor is beautiful safari style. The food was really delicious for all meals, but the feel of this camp was more aloof, and uptight. My husband and I traveled w 2 daughters (20's) and upon arrival the camp combined our safari with another couple (70's), who were very lovely but had some physical restrictions. We voiced our concern that both parties wouldn't be fully satisfied if the guide could honor one or the other, but our concerns were ignored. Our guide, Gwyst, was at the end of his work period just before going home, and he surely seemed more "done" than interested in our enjoyment. We saw several types of animals, but the experience felt very structured and not so customized.
"Spoiled here and loved it."
Not sure as how we lucked out....but we were the only guest in the chalets. Everyone else was camping. Located in the heart of Chobe, the staff really took care of us. Room wake up calls to get a move on to see the animals that roam early in the morning. Then back for a light luch and rest, back out in the afternoon. Every safari drive was different and Kennedy our guide made it even more spectacular. We were able to see the famous Central pride of lions - Magnificent!!! That afternoon we saw the 4 bachelor male lions with their Cape Buffalo kill. Will try to post pictures later. An added bonus are the Rock Paintings from 100s of years ago.
"April 2017 Camping"
3 nights camping, good ablution block, clean and well appointed, met with the new camp manager, Russel, who came to our site for a long "marketing" chat, very keen to improve the camp and it's offering, We wish him all the best, the tuckshop is handled by a wonderful young lady, Nyena, if I remember well, just need to mentioned that pricing is high, i.e Graca Rose at BWP 140, wood at BWP 40, for a small bundle, so stock your own. overall, Russel is there to improve the camp altogether and believe that he is the right person for the job, John, his assistant is also a great asset to the camp. game viewing was great considering the the wetness of the area. road/track signage needs to be refreshed, we got lost on the wrong turn off leaving for Kasane.
