Expect a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience crafted from breathtaking surroundings combined with Atzaró’s acclaimed five-star hospitality.

Atzaró Okavango offers an exclusive and unforgettable safari experience, featuring luxurious accommodation and unrivaled access to nature. Embracing the essence of a bygone era in safari travel, Atzaró Okavango perfectly combines luxury with a deep connection to nature, embodying the expertise and pedigree that defines Atzaró.

Private game drives, community visits, guided safari hikes, stargazing, helicopter safaris, candlelit dinners by the lagoon, and dug-out mokoro canoe expeditions are just a taste of the activities available, providing guests with unforgettable and truly unique experiences.

The Okavango Delta’s wildlife is diverse and abundant, thanks to its rich ecosystems and the Botswana Government’s vigilant efforts against poaching, and the protection provided by the World Heritage Foundation. The Delta sustains large concentrations of animals year-round, with seasonal and migratory variations. Careful management has made it one of the world’s most exclusive wildlife destinations. The camp’s experienced guides from African Bush Camps offer guests unrivalled sightings of elephants, hippopotamuses, lions, leopards, gazelles, cheetahs, impala and buffalo.

In addition to the captivating wildlife found in the Okavango Delta, the guides from African Bush Camps at Atzaró Okavango Camp offer guests unparalleled opportunities to witness breathtaking sightings of elephants, hippopotamuses, lions, leopards, gazelles, cheetahs, and an array of magnificent birdlife. The camp is situated in an area where a dynamic seasonal shift of animals occurs between the arid and grassy regions surrounding the delta itself. During the wet season, large animals migrate from the delta to the lush grazing plains of its outer regions. As the winter months approach and the grazing fades, the water entices the wildlife back to the delta, and flocks of birds once again making it their home. The emerald season in November brings the birth of herds of new antelope and impala, a favourite time of the Camp’s owners when thousands of new foals dot the landscape, attracting large prides of big cats.

Strategically located, the camp offers an ideal vantage point to witness this constant migration of exquisite wildlife in its thousands. At Atzaró Okavango Camp, safari travellers can experience the splendour of African wildlife in its natural habitat, up close and personal. The surrounding lagoons, rivers and plains create a landscape teeming with animals, fulfilling every wildlife enthusiast’s dream. Atzaró’s Okavango safari guides and staff ensure the utmost guest hospitality and service during the stay in camp.

Encouraging longer stays of 5 days or more, Atzaró Okavango invites guests to fully relax amidst the wildlife and immerse themselves in the soothing sounds of nature. Guests are invited to indulge in the wellness and fitness facilities, rejuvenate, and settle into one of the world’s last untouched wildernesses.
