Developed as an extension to the historic Oddballs’ Camp, which was one of the first tourist camps in the Okavango Delta. Oddballs’ Enclave is a comfortable upgrade from the dome tents of its sister camp and here you will find just five Meru-style tents on raised decks, catering for a maximum of 10 guests at a time.
Oddballs’ Enclave offers a classic Delta experience, and the activities revolve around the ebb and the flow of the surrounding waterways. Guests will have their own local, experienced guide throughout their stay, as they explore the channels by mokoro and the numerous islands on foot.
The camp is deep in the Delta, situated on a small island, which just off the south-western edge of Chief’s Island- famous for having some of the best game viewing in Botswana, if not anywhere in Africa. Each safari tent has its own raised deck and during our last stay we had one of the most memorable elephant sightings, anywhere in Africa- as a bull elephant slowly made his way closer and closer to our deck, we held our nerve (along with our gin and tonics) as he ambled passed, grabbing some of the vegetation next to us with an outstretched trunk.
Oddballs’ Enclave is not a camp to visit for tearing around in a jeep after predator sightings but a place to let the action unfold before you and revel in the peace and tranquillity that is what the Okavango is all about.
