Natural Habitat Adventurer Camps
Pelo Camp, Gomoti, & Linyanti
Our private Adventurer bush camps are designed to recreate the classic safari ambience of yesteryear with the comforts of today. Walk-in canvas tents provide spacious accommodations evocative of those used by early explorers. Each tent has a full wooden bed with cotton linens and duvets and an en suite bathroom with hot water bucket shower and toilet. Excellent meals are prepared over the campfire and served in the dining tent or beneath the stars.
Pelo Camp 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 Camp is designed to offer a genuine wilderness experience with a light footprint. It's an ideal location for the adventurous traveler wanting a traditional experience of the delta. Guests will boat into camp from the Jao airstrip, and once there, the prime activity will be excursions by mokoro, the classic wooden dugout canoe of the region. 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. Ten individual guest tents have private covered verandas and en suite bathrooms with flush toilets, bucket showers and running water in the basins. Pelo Camp 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.
Gomoti Adventurer Camp
Our private Gomoti Adventurer Camp has just five tents for the exclusive use of NHA guests. The spacious walk-in Meru-style canvas tents measure 13 x 13 feet and are designed to evoke the feel of a safari camp from the early days of exploration. Within the tents there is space for clothes storage, plus a hammock and extended shade area at the entrance with comfortable safari chairs for relaxing. Wooden-frame beds are covered in cotton linen (with duvets), and bedside tables have lamps for reading. The en suite bathroom, accessed via a zip door in the rear of the tent, has a serviced tin bucket shower with hot water available on demand, plus a short-drop toilet. In the evenings, excellent meals are typically prepared around the fire by the warm and friendly camp staff.
Linyanti Adventurer Camp
Our Natural Habitat Adventurer Camp in Linyanti is located in a pristine area where a sense of wilderness is palpable. The camp's 13-foot x 13-foot walk-in Meru-style tents create an atmosphere evocative of an earlier era of African exploration. Tents have space for clothing storage and are furnished with wooden-frame beds covered in pure cotton linen bedrolls (with duvets) and a bedside table with lantern. Each tent has an en suite bathroom, accessed via a zip door in the rear of the tent, with an old-style tin bucket shower serviced with hot water on request, plus a short-drop toilet. Accommodations are simple but comfortable, with amenities and service that ensure a memorable bush camp experience. In the evenings, delicious meals are typically prepared over the fire by the hospitable camp staff.
