2 Nights Oddballs’ Enclave 2 Nights Camp Savuti The Highlights: • Private guided activities at Oddballsʼ Enclave • Guided walking on Chief’s Island Mokoro through the Okavango Delta • Exploring the magnificent Savuti Marsh Upon arrival in Maun you will be met by Delta Air who will assist you to the light aircraft and onwards air transfer to Oddballs’ Enclave. The Enclave is on a small island just off the south-western edge of Chief’s Island, deep in the heart of the Okavango, and bordering Moremi Game Reserve. The camp is accessible only by light aircraft. On arrival, you will be met at the airstrip and welcomed to the island by your private guide, who will remain your guide for the duration of your stay. Oddballs’ Enclave accommodates a maximum of 10 guests, in five twin or double bedded mini-Meru tents, making it a classic and intimate camp. The tents are on elevated wooden decks, each with a semi-detached private bathroom with hot and cold running water and an al fresco bucket shower. The guest areas have a variety of comfortable seating and a raised viewing deck overlooks the sweep of the Delta – the perfect place to watch the sun or moon rise and view whatever wildlife may be visiting. Meals are enjoyed on the deck with spectacular views across the floodplains to distant island forests. The Enclave offers only walking and mekoro (s. mokoro), the traditional dug-out canoe of the swamps. Your private guide (maximum of two guests per guide) was born and raised in the area. He owns his mokoro (the genuine wooden article, no plastic replicas for us) and will take you out on it in the early mornings and afternoons, to nearby islands where he will walk with you to view game and the spectacular landscape that is the Okavango. On request, the camp will pack a picnic lunch for you, allowing you to stay out the whole day. Walking unarmed amongst the full range of Africa’s wildlife is an experience that will live with you for a long time. Your guide is intimate with this landscape, and his knowledge of the big and little things that comprise it will astound you.
