Rustic, yet comfortable, tree-houses sit perched atop wide boughs in this idyllic safari camp in northwest Botswana. For years Delta Camp has been a pioneer in the realm of genuinely green eco-camps and this shines through in almost every aspect of the lodge’s construction and operation.

With the exception of a small diesel water engine (although plans are afoot to replace it with a solar-pump), solar and gas are the order of the day at Delta Camp. Blending seamlessly into its surroundings, the charming camp offers guests a selection of predominantly non-motorised game activities, thereby further reducing visitor impact within the concession area, which remains pristine despite more than three decades of safari operations.

Long-standing Delta Camp is a proud member of the continent’s top 48 sustainable safari operations, as selected by David Bristow and Colin Bell in their stunning coffee table book: Africa’s Finest. This important book is a leading resource in identifying the handful of truly sustainable safari operations from the host of green-washers and eco-pirates that pervade the African safari lodge industry. If you’d like to get hold of the book then you can order it here.
