Nxamaseri is a small, privately owned luxury lodge built on a heavily wooded island in one of the world's most renowned wilderness areas.

This camp is situated in the so-called "Panhandle" of the Okavango Delta. The Panhandle is surrounded by tranquil river channels and expansive floodplains. The lodge affords guests a fantastic and very affordable way to experience all the gifts the Okavango wetland system has to offer, and the specialities of camps along the Panhandle are angling and birding.

Nxamaseri is one of the oldest camps in the Okavango Delta. It was established in the early 1980s by PJ and Barney Bestelink. PJ, an experienced guide and lodge owner, spent months exploring the permanent water channels of the Delta in search of the perfect location for his home and camp. He favoured the Nxamaseri Channel for its beauty and seclusion, and eventually elected to build his camp on a large, shady island hidden in the Nxamaseri waterways. PJ, an avid fisherman, used Nxamaseri Island Lodge to pioneer fly-fishing in Botswana. He remains one of the most experienced fly-fishermen in Southern Africa and the camp is Botswana's premier fly-fishing destination.

The main lodge complex is centrally situated, with spectacular raised views over the Nxamaseri channel and surrounding floodplains. Wooden boardwalks lead to six private brick and thatch chalets with outside decks overlooking the waterways. Bathrooms are en-suite with flush toilets and hot and cold shower facilities, and three-bed chalets are also available.

Three meals a day are offered, with times depending on the activities organized for the day. In addition, the lodge has a fully stocked bar, which includes a good wine list.

For those seeking the ultimate in tranquillity, a morning or afternoon activity on a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, is a must. This is a great way to explore the smaller channels and backwaters of the Okavango. Fishing and birding remain the specialities at Nxamaseri Island Lodge and there is a renewed focus on excursions to the sacred San site, Tsodilo Hills.

For non-fishermen, Nxamaseri is still a perfect destination to experience the soul of Africa. With new emphasis on décor and cuisine, the Lodge provides an exclusive and revitalizing getaway for the traveller wanting to experience the tranquil and unique nature of Africa.

In addition to birding, fishing, excursions to Tsoldilo Hills and mokoro trips, Nxamaseri offers excellent guided walks on nearby islands, accessed by boat or mokoro, giving you the opportunity to experience the intimacy and peace of unspoiled Africa. Exploring the islands on foot is an effective way of relaxing and finding the more timid, forest-dwelling birds in this area.

Self-driving to the Lodge is permitted; there is a car park just off the main road and the staff will meet you there with a 4x4 vehicle for the 30 minute transfer to the Lodge. During the flood season from May to September, there is no access to the island by vehicle or foot and guests are transferred from the airstrip or car park by boat.

Oddballs' is situated on the edge of Chief's Island, deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The camp is accessible by light aircraft only and is a 20-minute flight from Maun. On arrival you will be met at the airstrip and welcomed to the island by your professional guide.

Accommodation is in dome tents set on elevated wooden decks, and shaded by shelters or trees. Each tent is equipped with bedding, a storage trunk and a light. Beautiful outdoor showers and ablutions are en-suite.

The central bar and lounge area offers comfortable chairs and sofas, a selection of books and games. The raised viewing decks overlooking the sweep of the delta is the perfect place to sip a sundowner and watch the sunset over the palm trees and view whatever wildlife may be visiting.

Activities are conducted by your own professional guide, a maximum of two guests per guide, from a man of the swamp, born and bred. He has a mokoro/dug-out canoe in which he will take you to nearby islands, where you will walk to view game and the spectacular landscape that is the Okavango. It might also be possible to visit his village, meet the elders and perhaps his family. Subject to water levels, an additional attraction at Oddballs' is a mokoro trail into the further reaches of the delta.

All equipment and provisions are packed into your mokoro as you set off with your guide for an unforgettable wilderness experience. Camping equipment is provided such as a tent, a sleeping mat and pillow, cutlery, crockery, pots and pans and food, however you must bring your own sleeping bag.

Scattered in the forest of a large, beautiful and palm-studded island deep in the Okavango Delta, Delta Camp’s Chalets are designed and built to take advantage of the many indigenous old-growth trees of the island forest.

Chef Steve, head chefs at Sanctuary Baines' Camp, grew up in the area with his parents who from an early age taught him how to fish, track animals and pole a traditional mokoro. Luckily for us he soon realised his passion was creating mouthwatering dishes in the kitchen and in 2006 he joined the Sanctuary Retreats team hoping to realise this dream. Today Steve is an excellent chef and too happy to share one of his favourite dishes. If you are celebrating a special occasion we could arrange a special private dinner by the pool for a romantic night under the African stars, the perfect way to start an evening under the African sky.
