Offering a unique sense of adventure amidst luxury and comfort, the Atzaro Okavango is set to debut in 2024.
August 30, 2023: African Bush Camps introduce Atzaro Okavango, their 18th luxurious ride, through the UNESCO World Heritage recognised wilderness. The space is built on environmentally minded principles while equally maintaining the luxurious appeal. Not only the company has powered the entire space with solar energy, but it has also introduced a new education program in Maun to benefit 15 students of the region, and provided a water system in the same school to encourage an essential learning environment.
Perched in the heart of the Okavango Delta of Botswana, the camp stands as an awe-inspiring haven that blends the enchanting allure of nature with opulence. With 10 air-conditioned suites including 2 double luxury family suites, the property sprawls across 60 acres. Awash in a calming palette of beige and green, the cozy interior is outfitted with leather furniture, canopied bedding, woven rugs, native potted plants, and flowing draperies.
The place will also feature a private plunge pool, indoor/outdoor shower, and a private deck under a grass-topped roof for outdoor dining and entertaining. Furthermore, guests will also be able to enjoy several soothing therapies at the wellness spa. For a mood of celebration, a wine bar and an ancestral Boma will be accessible.
The rich and diverse wildlife of the place will add a refreshing sense of surprise and delight to your trip. Activities will involve daily game drives, walking safaris, and mokoro explorations in the iconic ‘African gondola’ of the Okavango Delta, all led by African Bush Camps’ professional guides.
High adventure enthusiasts can also indulge in night drives, bird-watching excursions, and catch-and-release fishing, as well as helicopter rides and cultural visits to nearby communities, where the locals can share their knowledge and traditions.
From Maun and Khwai, there will be a helicopter service to the camp. Prices will start at $690 per person, per night and $3,450 for a villa. So get your khakis on!
