Pelo Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Pelo Camp is an Adventures Camp

Serene meanderings by mokoro

The word Pelo in Setswana means ‘heart’ – a fitting name inspired by the distinct heart-shaped island on which the camp is built in the heart of the Jao Concession. This is the Delta as it is meant to be enjoyed – remote, genuine, and wild.

Pelo Camp’s main area comprises a tented dining area and lounge situated under impressive wild date palms, jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees while the inviting plunge pool allows for refreshing dips in the midday heat. There is also an outdoor boma area and a raised lookout deck perfect for sundowners. The five intimate guest tents, complete with a covered front veranda, have en-suite bathrooms with both an indoor and outdoor shower. The camp’s footprint is light allowing unobtrusive wildlife viewing and a sense of being at one with nature.

Highlights

  • Set in one of the most beautiful ecosystems in the world, Pelo is an eco-friendly camp
  • Provides a classic, traditional Okavango experience for the adventurous traveller

As recommended on TripAdvisor

“ The boat trips and mokoro were great - lots of birds and the peaceful sound of the river slipping by. We even did a nature walk where we heard a leopard and cubs nearby, learned how to make fire with sticks and a snare trap for a bird!! ”
