Arrived at Delta camp via a little cessna from Maun on the sand/mud strip runway and transfered to camp via mokoro canoe gliding along the crystal clear waters of the delta, dodging hippos along the way, a slightly daunting experience to say the least! However you get used to it. The main lodge is in a stunning setting, one of the first to be built in the delta but still looks as good as new. The chalet rooms are various designs of tree house built into the surrounding area all with unique and stunning views, elephants often wander through which provides wonderful photo opportunities, as long you stay out of their way! Game walks on the surrounding islands are very interesting although in summer (Dec - Mar) a lot of the animals are dispersed as there is so much water around. However you are guaranteed to see elephants and hippos all year round and bird watching is spectacular. The food was amazing and of the highest standard. But it was the staff that really made the stay special, I can't recommend this lodge enough and really didn't want to leave after only 3 nights!
