Okavango Delta Accommodation
Okavango Delta accommodation options are varied and range from five star luxury camps and lodges to more humble accommodation. All fall within the government’s high value, low volume tourism strategy and thus might be more expensive than one might imagine.
The Major Lodge Operators
Africa’s preeminent safari operator, Wilderness Safaris have properties in most of Africa’s safari destinations and with their aircraft operator, Wilderness Air, are able to put together safaris from the mid to high budget level. Some of Wilderness Safaris’ best known properties are Mombo and King’s Pool.
With limited properties in the Okavango Delta, but an extensive portfolio in the Kwando concession, Kwando provide a good balance of land and water based camps and lodges.
Desert & Delta Safaris
Desert & Delta Safaris have a broad collection of lodges both in the Okavango Delta and surrounding safari country. These diverse lodges provide an excellent overall safari experience.
Ker & Downey Botswana
Perhaps Botswana’s oldest safari operator, Ker & Downey Botswana has an excellent footprint of camps throughout northern Botswana and with its specialist products such as Young Explorers, for children, and Footsteps Across the Delta and excellent guides offer an excellent product for discerning visitors.
The product of a tour operator, Afro Ventures and lodge operator, CCAfrica, &Beyond is primarily known for its lodges in east and South Africa.
Lodges of Botswana
One of the older locally run operations within the Okavango Delta, Lodges of Botswana run authentic rustic properties.
A five star lodge operator Sanctuary Retreats operate two properties in the Okavango Delta as well as Chobe Chiwero just outside the Chobe National Park. These recently renovated Delta properties offer elephant interaction.
One of the best known travel brands in the world, Belmond Safaris operate two properties in the Delta. When combined with Savuti Elephant Camp these provide a broad mix of land and water camps.
