Oddballs Enclave is a small, comfortable bush camp on a little island southwest of Chief’s Island deep in the Okavango Delta. It was created as a sister camp to the original Oddballs Camp and is designed to offer a high quality, value-for-money safari. The tented accommodation provides all the comforts you’ll need yet still feels like an authentic traditional safari camp.
No motorised activities are offered at Oddballs Enclave, to help preserve the fragile environment, so you’ll be taking leisurely rides in authentic wooden mokoros through the water channels and lagoons and setting out on guided walks on the delta’s islands. Both activities combined with the knowledge and experience of your personal guide, will give you an insight into the delta’s flora and fauna. If you wish you can spend the whole day out, taking a picnic lunch with you. You’ll meet your guide at the start of your stay and you’ll liaise to arrange your daily activities. The guide (unarmed) is local, owns the mokoro you ride in and has an in-depth knowledge of the delta and is proud and happy to share this with you.
The classic walk-in Meru-style tents are on elevated decks high above the ground. The front of the tent the flysheet opens onto a veranda with a table and chairs. There’s a semi-detached bathroom to the rear, completely open to the sky and screened by reeds. It has a flush toilet, wash basin and traditional bucket shower, very much part of the safari experience. The central area has a lounge-cum-bar with ample comfy seating and a raised viewing deck with sweeping views of the delta that you’ll never tire of admiring, especially with the ever-changing wildlife. Meals are served on the deck with a choice of covered or sunny areas, so you’ll enjoy the fine views as you dine.
The Oddballs Mokoro Trail can be taken from here. After a night in camp, you have a minimum of 2 nights (or as many nights as you like) camping out in the bush as you wend your way through the delta waterways. It’s a real adventure, which is available much of the year but is slightly dependant on such things as water levels and wildlife activity.
