Kadizora Camp (Okavango Delta)
Kadizora Camp is situated between the Vumbura River and
Selinda Spillway. It lies in the remote northern part of the
Okavango Delta over-looking a panoramic seasonal floodplain.
Giant Marulas, Sycamore figs, Jackalberries and Rain trees
provide a canopy of shade throughout the camp.
The bar, lounge, reception and dining area form a
horse-shoe shape around the sandy fire pit. From there, a
decked walkway leads you to an inviting swimming pool with a
view over the floodplain.
The lodge has 10 luxury tents with either twin or a
conversion to a double bed. Each tent is well-positioned for
ultimate privacy and seclusion.
All tents feature a luxurious en-suite bathroom and
outdoor decking, with spectacular views for a true ‘out of
Meru-style tents form the common area and open onto a
central deck and fire pit. The bar at Kadizora Camp is on a
raised deck with a panoramic view of the floodplain. Enjoy a
picturesque Delta sunset, with your favourite sundowner,
watching the colours intensify long after the sun has set.
The inviting camp fire is the focal point from dawn to
dusk, and it is the perfect place to chat about the day’s
adventures. Tea / coffee facilities are available in the
A wooden walk-way leads you out from the main deck to the
swimming pool where you can relax on a sun lounger before
the next activity. In the evenings the pool deck is a
wonderful viewpoint for star gazing.
Game Viewing / Activities:
This is the only area in the Okavango Delta to offer hot air
Your Hot Air Balloon Safari begins with an early morning
departure from Kadizora Camp, driving through the
floodplains to the balloon launch site. On this pre-dawn
safari, you may be fortunate enough to see sightings of
nocturnal wildlife. On arrival at the launch site, you will
be served tea or coffee, while the balloon is being rigged
and inflated ready for your flight.
After a welcome greeting by the pilot, you are ready for
take-off. As the balloon is fired up, drift away across the
flood plains, watch the sunrise and the animals waking to
begin their day.
Upon landing, celebrate your flight with champagne and
snacks and receive your first flight certificate from the
pilot before heading back to camp. Hot air ballooning is
available on request during the peak season for April –
Game Drives in an open safari vehicle allows you to
explore some of the varied vegetation this World Heritage
site has to offer. Drive through semi-desert sands, dense
Mopani woodlands and marshy floodplains. The area is home to
a vast species of game including elephant, buffalo, lion,
leopard, cheetah, wild dogs, hyena, giraffe, zebra,
wildebeest, kudu, red letchwe, impala, honey badgers, hippos
and crocodile, to name a few. The region is also home to
countless resident and migratory birds and birdwatching is
particularly favourable when the Delta waters arrive in
February and dry up in late September.
On a bush walk, one would have the opportunity to observe
the smaller things, such as fauna and flora, that one would
not see on a game drive. Our knowledgeable guides will talk
to you about animals tracks, bush skills and natural
remedies used by the locals.
Kadizora Camp is fortunate to have traditional mokoros
(dug-out canoes) which glide through the Delta water
channels and provide an opportunity to view the aquatic
wildlife from a close vantage point. The crystal, clear
waters are filtered by large papyrus reed beds and is clean
enough to drink.
From the safety of a motor boat you can
see crocodiles basking in the sun and pods of hippo
wallowing in the lagoon. Your skipper will navigate the
waters to ensure the best bird sightings possible. In the
fishing season you can go out in the boat and try your hand
at fishing with spinners – typically you may catch pike,
barbel and bream. The Camp cooks will fillet your bream
catch on your return and prepare it for your next meal!
drives provide for some of the most dramatic and unusual
game viewing. The advantage of a night drive is that
they provide access to nocturnal species rarely seen during
the day. Hippo, Bush Babies, Chameleon’s, Aardvarks and
Leopard are more active after dark, and there is a greater
probability of seeing them hunt at night. A night
drive Safari has a unique and exciting atmosphere as
nocturnal animals are bolder than during the day. This
increases your chances of witnessing that elusive
Leopard. Experience the exhilaration of sitting in the
middle of a herd of elephants in the moonlight, or the
thundering sound of buffalo hooves in the darkness.
