A small and very friendly camp set on an island in the Delta. The food was excellent as were our hosts and our guide, Ras. The camp has its own elephant visitors, Jack and Grumpy, who swim over at night, the Delta is full of so many beautiful species of birds and we were fortunate enough to see the shy Sitatunga, male, females and baby, several times.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The word Pelo means 'heart' - a fitting name as, from the air, the island on which Pelo Camp is situated is heart-shaped. It is also found pretty much as deep into the heart of the Okavango Delta as it is possible to be. The camp is completely eco-friendly with solar power providing all energy requirements. The main area comprises a tented dining area and lounge situated under impressive wild date palms, jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees with a spacious deck overlooking the waterways. There is also a swimming pool, an outdoor boma area and a raised platform built onto an old anthill. Small and intimate, the five spacious guest tents have en-suite bathrooms and a covered front veranda with an outdoor bucket style shower. Given the camp's situation on an exquisite, small island surrounded by permanent water, activities focus on mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) excursions in the open, shallow floodplains as well as boating and walking. ... more less
