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. 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. 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 Camp is completely eco-friendly
