Bushman Plains Camp
One of the very first camps in Botswana owned and run by the Bukakwe Clan, it comes as no surprise that it's on a heritage site of the first people who lived there, or shall we say the first people in history. Ahem. That's right if you want to camp like a champ, do so in 370,000 acres of wildlife and vegetation with the people who know it best.
Not only will you be getting the best safari experience from authentic knowledgeable guides, you will also be staying in one of the most exclusive wildlife areas of the Okavango Delta. Here local culture meets game viewing. A whole new perspective to tracking a lion and that bush over there, wait that's actually ancient medicine. Stories under the stars. Make friends with the Bushman.
A basic tent set up, it's nothing fancy but that's not what you are here for. At least you won't have to pitch your own tent or sleep in sleeping bags, a king-size bed awaits you. You will have to make use of a bucket shower but that's part of the adventure. You came for the experience, not the tent, so let's get into that.
With water access all year round you can explore the Okavango by mokoro and go on a bush walk in the area. The guides will teach you a whole lot more than what's on the brochure. For a chance to experience the bounty of wildlife, enjoy game drives during the day and again at night if you are up for it. You might get lucky and spot the Big Five (who are we kidding, you will definitely spot them). If you encounter a pack of wild dogs, hang around and you might even get to see them hunt.
From the air (at an additional cost), you can also venture on a hot air balloon ride or helicopter flip. Exhilarating.
It's no luxury accommodation but it's a top notch affair. Explore the Okavango Delta and abundant wildlife, the African bush and the passion of the local Bushman.
4 Meru-style tents with twin or king-size beds; en suite enclosed bathroom with bucket showers; electricity; shaded outdoor seating; mess dining tent with lounge; campfire
Day and night game drives. Spot the Big Five and the nocturnals.
For something a little more out there (literally) try a hot air balloon ride or a helicopter flip (at an additional cost)
Since the river sees water all year, a canoe trip is a must.
Explore on land and water.
