Pelo Camp


Safari Highlights

Deep in the Okavango Delta, in the Jao concession, sits a heart, or 'pelo', shaped island; on it stands Pelo Camp in amongst one of the most beautiful ecosystems in the world.

Pelo Camp

A Remote Retreat

Escape from the stresses of modern life at Pelo Camp. The camp’s main area consists of a dining area, lounge and bar with an extended deck overlooking the floodplains beyond. Small and intimate, the five spacious guest tents have en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor shower and private decks with views out onto the delta.  

Pelo Mokoro

Explore the Waterways

As the camp is located on a small island surrounded by permanent water, activities focus on mokoro (traditional canoe) excursions, walking (please request in advance to ensure a walking guide is allocated to you) and boating (subject to water levels). There are plenty of opportunities to see hippo, lioncrocodile, the occasional leopard, as well as the elusive sitatunga.  This is also a birdwatcher's paradise; enthusiasts have the chance to spot Pel's fishing-owl as well as African and lesser jacanas and a host of other Okavango specials such as slaty egret, African pygmy-goose and the western banded snake-eagle.
