Pelo Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Pelo Camp is an Adventures Camp

Serene meanderings by mokoro

The word Pelo means ‘heart’ – a fitting name as, from the air, the island on which the camp lies is heart-shaped. Pelo Camp’s main area comprises a tented dining area and lounge situated under impressive wild date palms, jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees. There is also an outdoor boma area and a raised platform. The five intimate guest tents have en-suite bathrooms and a covered front veranda. The bathroom has a flush toilet, running water in the basin and an outdoor bucket shower.
