We have dubbed some Okavango Delta accommodation as ‘Mixed Activity’ camps. What do we mean by this? These Okavango safari camps offer a variety of safari activities throughout the year. And not just during the flood season of July to October. The amount of land-based activities, (game drives and bush walks), versus to water activities (boating and mokoro trips) might vary by time of year. But you will be able to enjoy a range of activities regardless of when you stay.
This is particularly useful if you have limited time, such as only 3 nights. If this is the case, you don’t have time to visit two camps in different areas.
How come they can offer water and land based activities? Usually it’s because these safari camps lie on some of the perennial rivers or water channels. These run through the Okavango 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’.
TIP: If you don’t have time to visit two contrasting camps, or it’s the green season, we recommend one of these camps.
