Pelo Camp is a small tented lodge located on a heart-shaped island in the beautiful Jao Concession in the north-west Okavango Delta.
Pelo Camp is a really wonderful little camp with an incredibly beautiful and tranquil setting in the heart of the Okavango Delta. To get the full benefit of the location it is best to visit from May through to September when water levels are highest and the landscape is a stunning mix of islands, lagoons and floodplains inundated with water. The camp is simple but comfortable and has a very relaxed and peaceful ambience. This is a camp where you can slow down, enjoy some quiet time and really escape modern life for a short while. Being so wet, the area is not brilliant for big game, though you will see lots of red lechwe and also hippo, crocs and elephant. The larger islands are home to plains game and some predators – you might hear a lion roaring or a hyaena ‘whooping’ at night, but day time activities are unlikely to encounter them. However the scenery and birding is spectacular! In general you should consider Pelo Camp for the exclusive feel if offers, the amazing Okavango wetland experience, the excellent birding and your chance to see the rarer species such as sitatunga, spotted-necked otter and Pel’s fishing owl. Pelo is one of the few camps in Botswana that offers genuinely good value for money too!
