This is a very special lodge, accessible only by small charter plane and then mokoro (dug-out canoe)
We were staying in the tree house - definitely the most unique accommodation we have ever stayed in, with the best view of any "hotel" room! Elephants and buffalo come right up to the lodge; truly spectacular viewing.
The safaris are either by mokoro, or on foot. So you do not necessarily see as much game as you would in say a game drive vehicle. But it was nevertheless very interesting, as our extremely knowledgeable guide, OC (supported by Chief) pointed out all sorts of interesting bird life, and small game.
Food at the lodge is excellent; plenty of fresh salads, which we love. The selection of drinks (all inclusive) was also the best we encountered in our Botswana travels.
Mat and his team saw to it that we were well looked after.
Just 2 small gripes:
When you are paying this much for a room per night, I would expect all laundry to be done. Including "smalls".
The water in the lodge is not potable. There was a carafe of brown water next to the bed in the room, which we were specifically instructed NOT to drink (??!). I would therefore expect there to be several bottles of drinking water provided in the room. This was not the case. And you are not permitted to walk about at night; so the one night we literally had NO drinking water, from 9.30pm until we got to breakfast the next morning.

Delta Camp offers walking/mokoro (dugout canoe) safaris. One is extremely close to wildlife (especially the many many elephants that sometimes even send the night at camp); it so means that seeing every species of local wildlife is not guaranteed.
The food is prepared on site and is spectacular- the menu is fixed but there are veg/gluten options.
The staff is amazing. The managers Matt, Joe, and Pony ensure every need is met and they are fun to hang out with during dinner.
The guides, Reps and Kagiso in our case, are delta born-and-bred and know their way around the Okavango flood plains expertly. They also have a deep and genuine respect for te local flora and fauna.
The rooms are open and wild, with bats and insects occasional sharing the space, but they are clean and safe and it is not uncommon to see wildlife mere feet from the balconies.
Highly recommended. We spent three wonderful nights and days at Dellta Camp.

We travelled here as a family with three young kids aged 22 months, 5 years and 9 years.

Whilst the mokoro guides were excellent and safe the camp manager Matt expected us all to heed to attention and wouldn’t let us settle into our rooms until all Of us were seated on the counch and completely quiet! With an exhausted 22 month old baby this was near on impossible and at one stage in exasperation I said “keep talking Matt he’s not going to be quiet he’s tired and hungry!”. Only then were we “released” to go to rooms for a freshen up and to settle the kids.

The food was 2 star at best with chewy over cooked lamb on the first night. Set meal times were odd with cereal early prior to a mokoro ride then a cooked breakfast at 1030! Then lunch at 230! And dinner st 730. Whilst this would suit families with older kids it doesn’t suit 5 year olds who eat a lot earlier. When we asked for the kids meals earlier they did oblidge but it camp with a sigh of exasperation from the cook!

The rooms were rustic and quaint with lots of fresh air! But mosquito nets had holes in them which were huge and the quality of these was in serious disrepair . The bedding needed an upgrade as well. In addition the shower wasn’t hot on first night and it was due to a faulty pilot light- no biggy but it was just a culmination of things that made this lodge the least favourite of our trip and not worth the money.

On a positive the views from the camp were amazing and the seating areas comfortable.

Delta Camp was a great place to absorb the peace and tranquility of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Time seems to stand still as you arrive at this small camp by mokoro boat and only travel on safari that way. The delta has a great rhythm of its own and abundant wildlife viewed from the boat and on walking safaris around the various islands. A visit to a local community is offered as visitors choose.

We stayed at Delta camp for 3 nights and wished we stayed for longer. Even now, I long for the views of the Okavango Delta sunrise and sunsets. We had a large group and were lucky enough to have the entire camp to ourselves. My wife and I stayed in room 9, located a little inland, which we appreciated. The animal (elephant, water buffalo, baboons, bats, etc.) visits on our balcony were only some of the great highlights of our stay. The mokoro rides were so smooth and elegant and our guides were such experts on maneuvering and educating us about the land. The walking safaris made you feel so much closer to the animals and land and so different from the game drives of typical safaris. We loved how good and fresh the food was and appreciated that there was a self-serve bar available at any time. The staff were warm, friendly, and knowledgeable which really added to our stay. I would highly recommend this camp for the full Okavango experience!
