Pelo Camp

Tented camp in Inner Delta

Billed as an 'adventure' camp in the Wilderness Safaris portfolio, Pelo was rebuilt in 2015 to fit a more classic mould, though prices remain as low as you'll find for this kind of comfort and experience in Botswana. Built on an island, and offering only waterborne activities (mokoro and motorboat excursions), Pelo is perhaps the delta's most relaxed such place.

There's an inviting swimming pool, excellent birding (including in 2016 two resident pairs of Pel's fishing owls), a resident elephant and 100% solar power, while the tents are conventional in design with an attractive contemporary look. Unless you need your dose of big cats and game drives, Pelo is a fine overall package.
