Delta Camp, Gunn's Concession

Raised reed chalets and a 30ft high treehouse

In the heart of the Delta

You will have the freedom to explore the Okavango with your private guide independent of other guests and to plan your days according to whim

Overlooking the confluence of the Boro and Metsematsweu channels of the Okavango, Delta Camp is well elevated. Spectacular views of swamp and riverine forest and a variety of game can usually be seen from the deck. Delta Camp’s is located on a small island in the heart of the Okavango Delta and the lodge is accessed by light aircraft from Maun, Botswana. Delta Camp blends into the landscape, meaning sometimes a tree grows through a roof or a floor, and that you will find no glass in windows. and it very often means that the building itself is elevated onto a deck, to minimise our disturbance of the earth and vegetation below. Elephants, cavorting hippo and basking crocodile are frequent visitors to Delta Camp, while lion, leopard and Cape Hunting Dogs have all been observed from the deck.

The seven open-fronted 'lethaka' (reed) chalets are dotted around the property to take advantage of the views of the surrounding bush and flood-plains. Furniture is locally made from, wherever possible, locally grown material. Delta Camp supports local artists and artisans. Each chalet is en-suite with hot and cold running water, a shower with a view, a variety of beds and areas in which to relax, mosquito netting and solar-powered electric lighting. Delta Camp also benefits from a treehouse - unique to the Delta and very special. At 30 feet up, it is not for the faint hearted but offers sensational views. Three excellent meals per day ensure that our guests are well prepared for their walks; tea and coffee are available always, and the open bar is always open.

Delta Camp offers twice daily walking safaris and mokoro (dug-out canoe) excursions in the Moremi Game Reserve. While visiting you will have your own private guide for an intimate experience walking in the dynamic eco-systems of the Okavango Delta. While travelling on foot with your private professional guide, you will learn about tracking animals, how they behave and live. Village walks are fascinating and entirely unadulterated. A day relaxing with a book followed by a short jaunt to the sunset deck is easy to arrange and sometimes just what you need after the active pace of safari. Alternatively, Mekoro Trails from Delta Camp is the opportunity for a pre-arranged, extended, fully serviced and catered camping expedition by dug-out into the further reaches of the Okavango.

Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
