Micro camps offer an incredible way of experiencing the outdoors. There are three new micro camps opening in the wildlife-rich Okavango Delta, Botswana. A UNESCO World Heritage Site which boasts one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems.
Alice Gully, co-owner of Aardvark Safaris, comments:
“With the largest of the three camps being four rooms, these new camps are the absolute antithesis of mass tourism. Perfect for those seeking an authentic and more intimate safari experience.
”In addition, all camps are not only available per room but also on an exclusive use basis. Ideally suited for families or small groups travelling together.”

Sitatunga Private Island Micro Camp – Opening July 2023
This beautiful camp is built out of recycled materials and its giant basket shape design is inspired by the local Bayei fishermen.

Due to its island location, safaris here are predominantly by boat. Sightings of elephants, crocodiles, hippos and the rare sitatunga antelope are all possible, in addition to hundreds of species of birds, as guests journey the deep reed bed-lined channels of one of the greatest rivers on Earth.
Available through Aardvark Safaris from £1,195 per night. Price includes accommodation, meals and drinks, reserve fees, and safari activities.
