Pelo Camp

Pelo camp is a Palm tree island oasis in the middle of the flooding Okavango Delta.  The word Pelo in Setswana means ‘heart’ – a fitting name inspired by the distinct heart-shaped island on which the camp is built in the heart of the Jao Concession. This is the Delta as it is meant to be enjoyed – remote, genuine, and wild. This camp was newly constructed in 2013 and is one of the most ecologically friendly camps in the Delta, generating 100 percent of the electricity . Pelo Camp’s main area comprises a tented dining area and lounge situated under impressive wild date palms, Jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees. There is also an outdoor boma area and a raised platform. The five intimate guest tents have en-suite bathrooms and a covered front veranda. The bathroom has a flush toilet, running water in the basin and an outdoor bucket shower. The camp’s footprint is light allowing unobtrusive wildlife viewing and a sense of being at one with nature.
