Live out the adventure of a lifetime as close to nature as you can get in the relaxing solitude of the African wilderness. Spend seven nights under canvas in Chobe National Park, Savuti and the Okavango Delta, close to nature in the wilderness of the African night.

Comfortable tents with en-suite bathrooms, carefully positioned in the game-rich wilderness areas of Botswana offer up close and personal encounters with wildlife.

This is a true African experience, with campsites in remote areas where guests can expect to see few other people or vehicles.

Canvas Romance

Tented guest areas create shady spaces to relax in the heat of the day or share a drink with friends in the evening hours, as dishes full of flavour find their way to dining tables. Dine beneath the stars on mouthwatering meals freshly prepared over an open fire.

Sated, draw your chair closer to the fire as talk and laughter merge into the starry night, swapping stories meant to last a lifetime. 

Shadows on the walls of your tent, faint birdsong filtering through the trees and the sweet fragrance of morning dew on bush vegetation welcome each new day in the wilderness. Steaming hot water in your en-suite bathroom’s bucket shower refreshes and revitalizes for the day ahead. Shady veranda areas offer a vantage point to enjoy the smaller details of bush life. Crisp linens and a spacious double bed welcome weary bodies after a long day filled with discovery.

Our permanent tented camp nestles deep in the heart of the watery wonderland that makes up the Okavango Delta. Reachable only by boat during the high water season, this intimate camp with only nine tents offers an exclusive experience steeped in the wonder and magic of this extraordinary ecosystem.

In the midst of crystal clear waters, surrounded by a mosaic of papyrus and reed beds, this Okavango Delta camp provides an exceptional water experience. With sweeping views opening up onto a permanent lagoon, this serene and isolated camp combines the best of what the Okavango has to offer. Glide silently on a Mokoro, exploring the mosaic of islands nestled among a labyrinth of channels.

Nine light and airy tented suites look out onto spectacular Delta scenery. Four-poster beds of blonde wood squat on bleached floors, offering up extensive views. An en-suite bathroom promises the luxury of a deep, warm bath and a refreshing shower waits either indoors or al fresco. Lull your senses with the splash of nearby waters as you recline in your covered sala or enjoy the cool comfort of your fully sized private pool.

 

A Day Under Canvas

Your days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife experiences and your nights to delight you with the romance of canvas under open African skies.

  • Morning Game Drive - As dawn breaks over the bush, the deep voice of your butler delivers a wake-up call at your tent. A tray of tea, coffee and homemade biscuits will be waiting outside your tent. Climb into an open 4x4 safari vehicle with your guide and tracker, and set off through the waking bush. You may be lucky enough to spot predators feasting on their kill from the night before or herds of buffalo grazing before the heat of the day.
  • Breakfast - After a morning spent tracking down wildlife, return to the camp for a hearty bush breakfast. Feast on platters laden with toast, jams and marmalades, homemade muesli, fresh fruits and assorted cheeses. Hot breakfasts are prepared on the open fire, with eggs, omelettes, frittatas and freshly cooked pot breads. 
  • Lunch - After breakfast, indulge in a steaming hot bucket shower or maybe a quick nap before lunch. Inviting lunch platters are served in the cool shade of the dining tent.
  • Afternoon Tea - While away the afternoon hours with a good book and a chilled glass of wine in the guest tent or simply watch the wonders of the bush directly from your tent's veranda. Afternoon tea, with a selection of light snacks, will be served in the late afternoon. 
  • Afternoon Game Drive - Depart on an afternoon game drive as the heat of the day starts to break or try something a little different on a river cruise. Glide among hundreds of elephant, which come down to drink or just cavort in the cooling waters. Hippo can be spotted both in and out of the water, and herds of beautiful sable wander the water's edge. Snacks and sundowners are served on board as the sun sinks beneath the horizon.
  • Dinner - As you arrive back at the camp, cocktails are served around a blazing fire. Dine under the stars on a delicious bush meal cooked on the open flames. After dinner, indulge in decadent desserts, served with tea, coffee or cognac. Stories from an adventurous day are shared around a glowing campfire. You will then be escorted back to your tent, where you will drift off to sleep amidst the sounds of the African bush.
