Situated in the south-western Okavango Delta, Oddballs Camp is situated on one of the original camping sites in the Okavango Delta. The camp is accessible by a 25-minute light aircraft flight from Maun. Oddballs camp is an affordable delta experience that suits the adventurous traveller or those just wishing to connect with nature.

Oddballs Camp accommodation consists of walk-in tents erected on raised wooden platforms, overlooking the floodplains, Boro River and renowned Chiefs Island. All tents have rustic, open air en-suite bathrooms with canvas walls, with bucket showers and flush toilets.

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. With plenty of private and communal areas to relax and enjoy this beautiful area.  Clients can walk around barefoot, relax and enjoy the informal nature of this Camp.

Days are spent in a relaxing manner with guests exploring the area by foot and mokoro – the traditional dug-out canoe.  These excursions are conducted along the Boro River, one of the main channels of the Okavango Delta and its surrounding floodplains – water levels varying with the time of year.  One can enjoy guided walks on Chief’s Island in the beautiful Moremi Game Reserve.   A local professional guide who has grown up in the area and has expert knowledge of the flora, fauna and culture of the delta region will lead you out into this amazing wilderness area. The atmosphere is tranquil and undisturbed by engines thus offering a pure experience of the wilderness.

An exciting further option from Oddballs Camp is to camp ’wild’ out in the delta on a mokoro trail (pre-bookings required and water level dependent) accompanied by your poler/guide. There is a provisions and camping equipment store at Oddballs and when you undertake a mokoro camping trail your food will be provided but you will be responsible for its preparation.

The Okavango Delta is where the wild things are: an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with elephants and birdlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands. The real magic of the Delta lies in its water, trickling through from far away highlands, and spreading across the channels and floodplains. During winter in the Kalahari, when the sun has baked the earth bare and turned the desert its driest, water fills the Okavango; transforming the floodplains into a Noah’s Ark of African wildlife. As the water brings life to the delta, its local residents shape and recreate it. Termites slowly build mounds into islands, germinated with palm trees by passing elephants. Waterways open and close on the whim of wide-bottomed hippos, carving out channels where they crash through reeds, and leaving room behind them for exploration by mokoro. The Okavango has many faces, which change throughout the year, prompted by that most unpredictable diva of all: the weather. Water levels rise and drop, expanding and shrinking islands, while animals move where the life is easiest and the grass greenest. In a few days, a sandy road driven by vehicle can become a waterway of unknowable depth, prompting a safari by boat instead. Where and when you stay in the Okavango Delta will hugely influence what you do in the bush each day, the animals you’re most likely to see and finally, the safari experience you’ll have. The delta’s watery heart is best discovered by mokoro through shallow channels and floodplains, as well as crossing the islands on foot. For less water and more of the big game, visit a camp on its drier edges (including Moremi Game Reserve and the Khwai Community Area), jump on a vehicle and seek out the animals hiding in the woodlands.
