Okavango Mixed Activity Camps

Mixed activity safari camps offer a variety of safari activities all year - open 4x4 game drives, bush walks, boating and mokoro trips on the water.


These Okavango Delta mixed-activity camps offer a variety of both water and land-based safari activities throughout the year. Not just during the Okavango flood from June/July to October. This is particularly useful if you have limited time and don’t have time to visit two camps in different parts of the Delta.

Why can they offer water and land based activities? Usually it’s because they lie on one of the perennial rivers or water channels. These continue to run through the Delta, even when it’s not in flood. So you can enjoy a game-viewing boat cruise or a mokoro excursion out of the classic delta ‘season’.


Why you may love it

  • Offer the best of all worlds: range of water and land-based safari activities year-round
  • So you’ll be able to enjoy a range of activities regardless of when you stay
  • These private concessions also allow driving off road (when following big game), night drives and game walks
  • Remote locations giving a great sense of tranquillity and wilderness
  • Note that the ratio of land-based activities, (game drives and bush walks), to water activities (boating and mokoro trips) will vary by time of year

Review of Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

They call Nxabega “the Gentlemen”. Lighter woods are now used but there’s still quite a manly feel to the lodge. All in all, it runs very well and I would recommend it. The main areas were looking very outdated but a refurbishment is about to start to bring the lodges area up to the same standard/décor look & feel as the new tents. The tented rooms are looking very good with a great combination of fresh, light woods with a traditional safari feel and colours. Spacing is the only real issue as the bedroom area seems a little tight. The little foyer is not really needed and this could be converted to the luggage area. The bathroom is very spacious (and they could have incorporated the luggage /dressing area in here as well rather than behind the bed, but anyway….). We had good game viewing with water activities available on the permanent channels. The Staff are well established, experienced and very knowledgeable.

There was no air conditioning, only a standing fan in the room. The camp runs on generator power so all gets switched off 1 hour after last guest goes to bed then back on 1 hour prior to wake up (around 4/5am) depending on season.

Note: Nxabega had a rooms refurbishment earlier in the year but the main lodge area is being refurbished now (Jan-Feb 2017).
