Camping out in the Okavango wilderness means digging a bush toilet and going without a shower. For most travellers this is a small price to pay for such a gorgeous remote island location.
The African wild comes alive at sunrise, so there will be some early starts. The thrill of spotting your first lion or rhino is well worth any loss of sleep.
Purpose-built overland trucks allow for excellent game viewing, equipped with large sliding windows. This means they don't have air-conditioning, however, so they can get dusty and hot.
The going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads. A little bit of patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment of this beautiful land.
This is a participatory camping trip, so team spirit is key. You'll be helping out with camp setup, food preparation and cleaning.

This is an excellent camping trip staying in many camping locations including campsites and 'wild' locations where wild animals can and do roam through. It is a participatory trip, therefore do not expect the trip guide and driver to put up your tent. Meals are plentiful, and are made on the portable cooker or campfire, with boiling kettle usually available for tea or coffee. You get up very early, usually before dawn and therefore often go to bed very early, unless you stay talking round the campfire under the wonderful dark skies full of stars. If you are seeking wild life, are sociable, adaptable, and are not wanting posh hotels this is a wonderful trip

This was the best trip of my life, and I travel quite extensively. The staff, itinerary and locations were amazing -- other reviewers are right when they tell you that you will fall in love with the Okovango Delta. I went hoping to see a few animals, and instead found a life-changing experience I will never forget!
