OKAVANGO DELTA 2020 FAMILY SAFARI SPECIAL
At Delta Camp, children 16 years and under sharing with two full paying adults stay absolutely FREE.
SAVE BETWEEN $2,000 – $5,000
Children love the Okavango … (as do the adults)!
The vibrancy, the freedom, the obvious rawness of the natural environment throbbing with life is very often closer to the child-state than it is to adulthood. The view that ‘they’re still too young to appreciate it’ could not be further from the truth.
Delta Camp believes it especially important, in this day and age, that kids have access to the natural world, and to be in an environment in which they are forced to direct their attention to the wider world, and away from hand-held electronic devices and computer screens – to stretch their eyes to the distance, to experience smells other than those that come from urban living, to experience the heightened sense of awareness that comes with the knowledge of life and death around them, to let their imaginations take wing, to consider possibilities unconsidered.
In support of providing life-affirming opportunities for your family, Delta Camp has decided to put their money where their mouth is with this innovative and unprecedented offer.
This offer is valid for either one or two children, depending on the rooms available at the time of booking.
from $745 per person per night (for stays in May – October 2020)
from $505 per person per night (for stays in November 2020)
DISCOUNTS available for stays 3+ nights – please enquire for your tailored quote.
BOOK TODAY, TRAVEL TOMORROW
Situated on the south-western edge of Chiefʼs Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta, on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve.
Scattered in the forest of a large, beautiful and palm-studded island deep in the Okavango Delta, Delta Camp’s chalets are designed and built to take advantage of the many indigenous, old-growth trees of the island forest. The buildings cannot improve upon the natural landscape; they must therefore blend into it as unobtrusively as possible. This sometimes means that a tree grows through a roof or a floor, it always means that you will find no glass in the windows and it very often means that the building itself is elevated onto a deck. Each spacious, elegant chalet is individually designed and decorated to fit discreetly into its setting and to take advantage of the spectacular views of the surrounding bush and flood-plains.
Game of all sorts are abundant: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippopotamus, crocodile, giraffe, antelope including the rare lechwe, tsessesbe and sitatunga, otters, honey-badgers, the shy pangolin, the nearly extinct rhino and a variety of the smaller wild cats such as civets, servals and genets are amongst the many mammal species that visit the Delta. There are also reptiles – many species of snakes (most of them harmless), as well as several species of tortoise, terrapin, lizard, skinks, chameleon and gecko – not forgetting of course the Nile crocodile. Then of course there are the birds, well over 450 species, that bring the forests, rivers and flood-plains of the Okavango to life. Many rare and endangered species call the Okavango home, and birders come from all around the world in search of them.
Delta Camp offers privately guided walking safaris like nowhere else in the Okavango Delta. Using only genuine, hand-made dug-out canoes (subject to seasonal water levels), guides will take guests deep into the Okavango, through the channels and floodplains to walk on the many islands in the area. The guide joins guests on arrival and remains exclusively with them for the duration of their stay.
The Delta Camp experience is cultural as well as being a wildlife and wilderness one, and spending time in the company of a man who has lived his life in this wild place, and perhaps even visiting his home, is a revelation to many visitors, and a lesson in differing values and perceptions.
All activities are conducted without assistance from motors, offering guests the opportunity to truly attune themselves with nature. In addition, the camp does not offer wifi or internet, which allows guests to be present with one another in a beautiful and intimate setting, something that has become increasingly rare in our hurried existence.
