Situated in the south-western Okavango Delta, Oddballs’ Camp is accessible via a 25-minute light aircraft flight from Maun. One of the original camping sites in the Okavango, Oddballs’ Camp is an affordable delta experience that suits the adventurous traveller or those just wishing to get away from it all at reasonable cost.
The accommodation at Oddballs’ Camp consists of simple domed tents erected on raised wooden platforms overlooking the floodplains and bush. All tents have a rustic en-suite bathroom. The central dining area directly overlooks the Boro River, providing excellent game viewing for guests. There is also a comfortable lounging area and a raised viewing platform on the banks of the river. The setting is informal and located above the legendary “Skull Bar” where you might be regaled with adventure stories.
At the camp you will be assigned your own private guide (maximum two people per guide) from the local community who will escort you on a series of excursions on foot and mokoro (dependent on water level). An exciting option is to camp ’wild’ out in the delta on a mokoro trail accompanied by your poler/guide (to be booked in advance).
Your stay includes all meals, activities, laundry and park fees. Drinks are not included and need to be paid for in cash as there are no credit card facilities.
