On a heart-shaped island in the middle Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Pelo Camp is an intimate and luxurious safari destination.
The word Pelo means heart in Setswana. Five spacious guest tents provide a classic safari accommodation with a touch of luxury. Each tent has double beds and an en suite bathroom with a copper vanity basin, both an indoor and outdoor bucket shower, and flush toilets. For added privacy and comfort, the tents include a shaded outdoor veranda with stunning views of the Delta. At night, the decks are lit by romantic lantern light.
With an eco-friendly design and no permanent structures, Pelo Camp offers a wetlands delta experience in the private Jao Concession on the boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. Deep in the world-famous Okavango Delta, the small heart-shaped island is surrounded by permanent water. One of the best areas to see sitatunga and red lechwe, the camp wildlife concentrations change with the water flow from season to season. Occasionally lion, cheetah, and leopard are spotted. Throughout the year, sightings of hippo, crocodile, tsessebe, elephant, wildebeest, and zebra are common. Flourishing birdlife is always exciting and features species such as Pel’s fishing owl, African and lesser jacanas, slaty egret, African pygmy goose, and western banded snake-eagle.
