        OK...there are no fences. So yes, you are among the wildlife. There are no vehicles, the experience is on foot or via dugout canoe. Sounds intriguing, except the boldness with which animals are approached via land rover on other safaris must yield to passive observation...More

        The main camp is pleasant with a beautiful view but can feel a little full. Would recommend that you arrange rather to camp out. Slip through the delta reeds to your own island and enjoy the isolation. The tents, including a toilet seat fresh long...More

        You are in the middle of the Okavango Delta. Gliding through the fantastic scenery is tranquile and a little unnerving. Unnerving simply because you were constantly trying to avoid running into hippos. Our guide, Fabien, called FNB, was such a delight. The Manager, KT, was...More

        We spent 4 nights in the Okavango Delta (2 at Oddballs Camp and 2 camping in the Moremi Game Reserve with our Oddballs guide). The flight to the Delta from Maun on a tiny 5-seat airplane was gorgeous, but motion-sickness-inducing. We had to abort the...More

        Oddballs Camp – we stayed at Oddballs Camp which had about 20 dome tents on platfroms. The nearby Oddballs Enclave is “upscale” with larger tents. Neither could be classified as luxury accommodations. However the setting on the river looking across to Chief’s Island is magnificent....More

        We are planning a visit to the Okavango in October (2 nights) and considering Oddballs Main Camp vs the Enclave (USD600 more) and wondering if it is worth the extra? Any thoughts? Any other advice on visiitng the Okavango and Oddballs? Thanks a lot, Barry
