A guide to planning your safari to the Okavango DeltaRead More
The Okavango Delta offers numerous camping options that allow a visitor to experience the magic that is the Okavango. There are a number of excellent sites within the Moremi Game Reserve as well as deep within the delta.
The Okavango Delta is a vast area and logistically camping trips need to be well planned and it is advisable to contact a local tour operator and take basic safety measures. Always ensure that someone knows where you plan to go and that you take some means of communications. It is sensible to travel with two vehicles.
With the ‘decentralisation’ of park fees and the privatisation of many of the campsites within the country camping in Botswana has become significantly harder to arrange. Prospective campers will need to arrange their tour with a number of different campsite companies or contact a local tour operator to assist in putting together a camping package.
It is worth accumulating a number of reference books before starting to plan a camping safari. These are written by seasoned travellers and have excellent advice on getting the most out of your safari. Ensure that you have good mapping of the area and have the knowledge to use your map. Do not depend on GPS when navigating through remote areas as it is very easy to get lost and lose track of where you are.
