Pelo Camp

Found in the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta, these vast wetlands are home to a plethora of wildlife and Pelo Camp provides guests with a front row seat. Set in the private Jao Concession on the boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve, the camp boasts strong eco-friendly principles and is not a permanent structure.

Natal mahogany trees and wild date palms surround the camp's main area, which is tented and comprises both the lounge and dining room. There is also a raised platform constructed on an old anthill and a boma area for intimate gatherings.

The camp is very small, possessing only 5 tents. However, accommodation is quite spacious, with plenty of room in the tents to fit en suite bathrooms and a comfortable bed. Zipper doors separate the bathroom and the main sleeping area of the tents and another zipper door leads from the bathroom to the outdoor bucket shower. All en suite bathrooms include flush toilets and running water in the sinks. Guests are also afforded a small veranda area and excellent views. The word Pelo means heart, an appropriate name for the camp as the small island on which it is situated is in the shape of a heart. Permanent water surrounds the island on all sides and so guests can expect mokoro rides (traditional dug-out canoe) to take preference.

Review of Pelo Camp

Donna Smith

The accommodations were great. The room was very nice with Wi-Fi in the room. The managers greeted us upon arrival at the Camp and departing to any outing. We traveled by car and then boat to arrive at the Camp. The wildlife was more birds than animals. We did see many hippos. There was instant coffee in the room.
