Pelo Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Pelo Camp is an Adventures Camp

Things to do at Pelo Camp

Given Pelo Camp’s situation on an island surrounded by permanent water, activities focus on water activities as well as walking.

Mokoro excursions

Glide seamlessly along the waterways of Pelo in a mokoro (a traditional dugout canoe) and take in the abundance of water-loving wildlife and birds.

Boating

Trips in a 12-seater boat allow for good wildlife viewing in the channels of the Delta further away. Lookout for red lechwe and elephant and maybe even catch a glimpse of spotted-necked otter.

Nature walks

Take a walk on one of a number of low sandy islands and learn about the River Bushman way of life in this area.

Fishing

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment (spinner rods and a small range of lures) is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.
