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.
