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.
Pelo lies in a true wetland area of the Okavango Delta, an ideal habitat for the elusive sitatunga antelope and common red lechwe. Hippo and crocodile are also regularly sighted. Birdlife is exceptional with the largest concentrations of endangered wattled crane found here as well as slaty egrets, rosy-throated longclaws, African skimmer and Pel's fishing-owl. The camp’s low impact, carbon-neutral activities allow unobtrusive wildlife viewing and a sense of being at one with nature.
The fully inclusive rates are not just about the level of accommodation or the thread count of the linen. They encompass elements that cannot be counted or measured, such as exclusive access to vast tracts of Africa’s best wildlife areas, creating a unique sense of seclusion, comfort, privacy and space. In turn, your presence helps in the conservation of all these iconic areas. Our dedicated team look forward to designing a journey that suits your budget and bucket list desires.
Note: Pelo is open annually from 1 March to 30 November
