Natural Habitat Discoverer Camps
Moremi, Linyanti and the Southwest Okavango Delta
Our Discoverer bush camps are designed to recreate the classic safari ambience of yesteryear with all the comforts of today. Airy walk-in canvas tents provide spacious accommodations evocative of those used by early explorers, with vintage touches such as teak director chairs and canvas and wood wardrobes. Each tent has a full bed with fine linens and an en suite bathroom with separate flushing toilet and shower areas. Hot and cold water are provided. Excellent meals are prepared over the campfire and served in the dining tent or beneath the stars.
Gomoti Discoverer Camp
Our private Gomoti Discoverer Camp has just five tents for the exclusive use of NHA guests. The spacious walk-in canvas tents measure 20 x 11 feet and are designed to recreate the accommodation style of the early explorers, with richly colored teak director chairs and spare interiors. Separate bedside tables with 12-volt reading lamps, canvas and wood wardrobes, bathrobes, comfortable beds and mirrors are provided. Each tent includes a separate private en suite toilet and shower that are part of the structure. Paraffin hurricane lanterns and a crackling campfire set the ambience in the evening, while sumptuous meals using fresh ingredients are typically prepared around the fire by the warm and friendly camp staff.
Linyanti Discoverer Camp
Set under magnificent knob thorn acacia trees with a splendid view over the Linyanti waterways, this nostalgic safari camp is replete with the atmosphere of a bygone era of African exploration. This authentic bush camp has just five spacious walk-in tents, each with brass bucket showers and hand basins, separate flushing toilets and shower areas. While the camp’s appointments are simple, in keeping with the classic safari ambience of days gone by, guests don’t lack for comfort. High-quality cotton linens and bush laundry service are among the many luxuries and amenities provided in this remote setting. And there’s nothing as romantic as enjoying a meal prepared over the campfire as you dine by the glow of paraffin lanterns and starlight.
Pelo Trails Camp
Pelo Trails is a new seasonal camp on the Jao Concession that offers classic water-based activities in the permanently flooded portion of the Okavango. Pelo means "heart," a fitting name, as the island on which the camp sits is heart-shaped—discernible when flying in. Located as deep in the watery heart of the delta as you can get, Pelo Trails is designed to offer a genuine wilderness experience with a light footprint. Guests will boat into camp from the Jao airstrip, and once there, the prime activity will be excursions by mokoro, the traditional wooden dugout canoe. The camp utilizes no permanent structures other than flushing toilets with a septic system, and is comprised entirely of tents that house private guest accommodations, a main lounge and dining area, kitchen, laundry and small staff village. Individual guest tents have private covered verandas and en suite bathrooms with flush toilets, bucket showers and running water in the basins. Pelo Trails enjoys a lovely shaded location between wild date palms, jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees. An outdoor boma area and a raised platform expand the public space.
