Mesmerising Macatoo

One of the largest inland river systems in the world, the myriad of waterways and floodplains that make up the Okavango Delta have long drawn eager nature enthusiasts, safari-goers, and intrepid travellers. With Macatoo Camp, visitors to the Delta can now explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site not only by vehicle and boat—but on horseback, too.

Large mammals and bird species abound in this water rich haven in the Kalahari Desert. Undoubtedly one of Botswana (and Africa’s) star attractions, the Okavango has been dubbed one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Its dryer regions see giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, and impala, while its floodplains are favoured by red lechwe, hippo, and elephant. Oft-sighted predators in the area include lion and spotted hyena.

Macatoo’s mess tent, eight accommodation tents, pool, and dining deck are all linked by wooden walkways. The pool overlooks a vast floodplain which attracts elephant and giraffe that are known to come curiously close to the viewing deck. Each tent is constructed on a raised platform proffering magnificent views of the surrounding Delta.
