Desert & Delta Safaris’ portfolio of lodges include Chobe Game Lodge, Chobe Savanna Lodge, Savute Safari Lodge, Xugana Island Lodge, Camp Moremi & Camp Okavango. Desert & Delta Safaris believes in sustainable, environmentally and socially conscious tourism and offers unique wildlife, nature and cultural experiences.
All our lodges are small and exclusive, and some of them are located in private concession areas only accessed in our own vehicles or aircraft. Most of our properties accommodate a maximum of between 16 and 24 people. Our largest property, Chobe Game Lodge, is the only permanent lodge built within the Chobe National Park and has 46 rooms.
Despite the remote locations of our lodges, all our rooms (and in some cases tents), have the comforts one would expect from a modern hotel - en suite bathrooms, walk in showers, flush toilets, and in some of our properties, air conditioned rooms and where air conditioning is not available, overhead fans. Our aim is to make your stay as comfortable as possible so such amenities as tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms and hair dryers are provided for. Each lodge is very different and we are able to offer a choice of tented or brick and thatch accommodation depending on your preference. Most of our lodges rely on generator power and 12-volt batteries for lighting at night, but in some cases we have permanent power via underground cables. Whatever the case, the chances are that you won’t even notice!
Part of the excitement of visiting Desert & Delta Safaris Lodges, is the getting around! We offer a fully integrated private air charter service, which operates single engined Airvan’s, Cessna 206’s, 207’s, 210’s, Cessna Caravans & twin engined Britten Norman Islander aircraft. For our water-based lodges in the Delta and the Chobe areas, we use private powerboats for transfers. Our vehicles at the lodges are either open Toyota Land cruisers carrying a maximum of 7 people or Landrover game viewing vehicles carrying a maximum of 9 people. All Land cruisers have individual buckets seats while the Landrover have bench seats. Each vehicle has a removable canvas roof enabling for shade and ample storage space for cameras, binoculars etc.
One of the great things about staying with Desert & Delta Safari Lodges is that all our rates are fully inclusive, offering excellent value. Included in our accommodation rates are all game activities (whether they be by vehicle, on foot, in a mokoro or a power boat), meals (buffet breakfasts/lunches and al la carte dinners), drinks with meals (soft drinks, local wines and beer), national park fees, laundry and medical evacuation insurance.
While staying at our lodges, everything is geared around the best game viewing times, specific to each lodge. Days start very early, sometimes at sunrise and often finish late in the evening. This is to utilize the best times to view game – so often the middle part of the day is free for relaxation which is why all our lodges have swimming or plunge pools with sun decks. All our lodges are also equipped with well-stocked libraries and comfortable lounges to relax in. Smoking is not permitted in any of our safari vehicles, but is allowed in sections of the lodge.
