Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Botswana
A marvel in blue, Wilderness Pelo Camp extends an invitation to explore its meandering channels by boat or mokoro. Keep an eye out for hippos, crocodiles, tiny reed frogs, and elephants grazing in the distance, as well as the elusive and stunning aquatic sitatunga antelope. Bird enthusiasts can add new species to their list, such as Pel’s Fishing Owl, or spot African jacanas and “umbrella-fishing” black herons, vibrant malachite kingfishers, and many others. The experience at Wilderness Pelo Camp includes catch-and-release fishing and guided walks, completing the quintessential Delta safari.
Pelo Camp is situated in a genuine wetland area within the Okavango Delta, making it an ideal habitat for the elusive sitatunga and red lechwe. Hippos and crocodiles are frequent sightings, with the latter often spotted basking on the channel banks. During the dry season, keep an eye out for lechwe, impala, and elephants on the floodplains. The birdlife is extraordinary, with substantial populations of endangered wattled cranes, as well as slaty egrets, rosy-throated longclaws, African skimmers, and many other species calling this place home.
Shaded by a sublime canopy of trees, traditionally styled Meru tents with en-suite facilities, make up this intimate camp. The canvas tents have a covered front veranda with spectacular views over the Delta, and are completely private, making Wilderness Pelo Camp ideal for a family or group of friends looking for an authentic Okavango Delta safari.
The emphasis at Wilderness Pelo Camp is on mokoro excursions – a smooth, silent way to seamlessly connect both with the myriad features of the Okavango Delta and the rich heritage of the region’s people. This watery wonderland supports an abundance of water-loving wildlife and birds.
