Under One Botswana Sky guests on a guided bird walk.
In the Okavango Delta, your bird safari begins right outside your room, so choosing where you stay is key. We suggest the following camps, but feel free to chat to us for more options.
Royal tree lodge has marked walking trails so that guests can create their own adventure. Over 300 species of birds have been sighted in and around Royal Tree Lodge at peak season. Keen birders should be able to see at least 50 – 70 species in a day and have the opportunity to add new species to the lodge’s bird sighting list. The record thus far is 130 species in a 24-hour period!
Under One Botswana’s Gunns Camp is set under leafy palms and African Ebony to blend naturally with its unique surroundings. Gunn’s Camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness and birdlife. The camp also offers full day Mokoro Excursions that includes a delicious picnic lunch which can be enjoyed on a Delta island after an exhilarating bush walk.
Sanctuary Baines camp is set in a grove of trees, rich in birdlife and surrounded by papyrus beds, so that guest can look for birds without leaving the comfort of the camp. Or you can opt for a stay on the Zambezi Queen where you can watch a fish eagle take flight – all from the comfort of your own luxurious bed in air-conditioned room.
It doesn’t matter whether you will be searching for birds on safari from the comfort of your luxurious room, your camp, a Mokoro or on foot, a birding trip to the Delta never disappoints.
