About Oddballs’ Enclave
Oddballs’ Enclave is a small, secluded area of the Okavango’s most famous destination. It is set on the same beautiful island and with spectacular views over the floodplains and old-growth forest of the island fringe.
There are five elevated ‘mini-meru’ walk-in tents, each with an en-suite bathroom and single or king-size beds and fine linen. The enclave is the perfect venue for small groups, families and those seeking an intimate atmosphere in which to relax in one of the world’s most beautiful settings.
Totally solar-powered, the enclave has made no concessions to those who would insulate themselves from the environment ; while the tents are thoroughly netted to deny ingress to mosquitoes and insects, the bathrooms are al fresco and feature our very own design of the traditional African bucket shower – hot, generous and on-demand. Likewise, the deck and dining areas are elevated and open to command sweeping views.
The activities at the enclave are identical to those at Oddballs’ itself; a maximum of two guests per guide, the freedom to do what you please, free of the demands and constraints of other guests, genuine hand-made dug-out canoes, unarmed walking on Chief’s Island and the Moremi Game Reserve, and the opportunity to visit your guide’s village, totally uncontrived and brimming with character.
Price is affected by time of travel. As the best time of year to visit is June through October, this is high season and the best months for game viewing, becoming progressively better until it rains in October to December, but with prices to match.

As the best time of year to visit is June through October, this is high season and the best months for game viewing, becoming progressively better until it rains in October to December, but with prices to match. April, May and November are shoulder season, with better prices and slightly more challenging conditions. December through March is low season, exceptionally beautiful but generally considered more suitable for second timers who have seen the game at its best and are happy to dig a little deeper for their experience. Although accommodation prices are seasonal, airfares and air transfers are priced the same throughout the year and are a significant part of the cost, so the effect on the overall package of seasonal pricing is somewhat mitigated as a result. see more
