A wild and authentic tented camp nestled amongst some of the Delta’s most ancient and stunning Islands.
This small traditional tented camp is situated in the remote north of the Okavango Delta. The camp, as the name suggests, has a real explorer vibe to it. Going back to the days of Burton and Selous who pioneered Africa by foot and in traditional dugouts. Okavango Explorers has kept it simple but great quality; there are 4 stunning custom-made canvas guest tents accommodating 2 people in each and a dining tent. All tents are on ground level under a crown of jackalberry and mangosteen trees.
Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with a beautiful Moroccan style brass ‘bucket’ shower which is filled anytime on request. Jugs of hot and cold water are brought to fill the brass basins at the morning wake up call and in the evening. Each en-suite has a flushing toilet.
The days at Explorers are impromptu, anything can happen and nature dictates. Traverse the neighbouring islands and the secretive Okavango streams by mekoro, peering up into the canopies for a chance to see the elusive Pel’s fishing Owl. Okavango Explorers is focused on walking with exceptionally experienced guides who will lead you on a journey to understand this most remarkable land.
The actives are focused on walking and mekoroing, allowing you to become intimate with nature with to discover the smaller details often missed. This being said the guides will quickly leave the tracks of a leopard tortoise to follow the fresh tracks of lion. The area is well known for its game, which includes wild dog, elephant, buffalo, lion, sable, leopard and much more. Okavango Explorers also has vehicles for exploring further afield, often used to drop off guests and guide so they can spend the day on an expedition back to camp. There is a boat in which guests can enjoy the sunset from a lagoon nearby. Or try their hand at fly-fishing for bream and African pike. Enjoy a star talk when back at camp and go to sleep with the sounds of hippo grunting in the water around you.
