Overview

Situated on the south-western edge of Chief’s Island, on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta, is Delta Camp. This rustic safari camp, with an emphasis on peace and tranquility, is set in the forest of a large, palm-studded island, positioned to capture the best views of the surrounding landscape.

Delta Camp is a true eco-camp as the ecology of the Okavango Delta has been considered in every aspect of its design. Accommodation is offered in eight lethaka (reed) chalets each different in design and décor and adapted to fit around the ancient trees of the island forest. Elevated off the forest floor and built of natural materials each chalet is en-suite with hot and cold running water and a shower with a view, mosquito net and solar-powered electric lighting. Delta Camp’s lounge, bar and dining area is well elevated to command a spectacular vista of swamp and riverine forest that lies before it.

A water-based camp, Delta Camp offers twice daily guided nature walks on neighbouring islands, birding and traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) excursions (excursion length is water level dependent). The mokoro guide is a “man of the swamps” from a local village. Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy a cultural interactive village visit with their guide or relax at the sunset deck in the heart of the island.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
