  • Ultimate way to experience the Okavango Delta

Home to a kaleidoscope of wildlife, the Okavango Delta is an intriguing phenomena, with ever changing landscapes created by the seasonal flood waters flowing through from Angola.

African Horseback Safari's camp, Macatoo, stands proudly on a palm fringed island, surrounded by endless grassy plains, punctuated with water meadows and seasonal lagoons. Bursting with life, the bush continuously shifts and transforms as you ride from island to island. The movement of the game and the dramatic seasonal changes ensure no two safaris are ever the same.

The classic Hemmingway-style tented camp provides you with all your creature comforts whilst allowing you to experience the wild beauty of the African bush. All six tents have an en-suite shower and loo and are secluded with a spacious verandah and armchairs overlooking the flood plain, dotted with palm trees. The central area has a mess tent with a bar and plenty of places to relax, an for those who wish to cool off after a day in the saddle, there is a small swimming pool tucked away in the trees.

For those who do not ride, or who simply have a taste for variety, vehicles are provided for day and night game drives and canoes can be taken down the river to view the game from a different perspective.

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Macatoo Camp is situated on the western side of the Okavango Delta. Covering 17,000 km sq, the Okavango is the largest inland delta in the world, a mix of labyrinth channels, palm fringed islands and fertile floodplains. Trapped in the parched sands of the Kalahari desert, it is a magnet for the wildlife who depend on the delta's life giving waters.

Maun is the gateway to the Okavango Delta, which is an 11-hour international flight to Johannesburg, followed by a 2-hour international flight. Once in Maun, you will be met by a Macatoo camp representative and introduced to your pilot who will fly you to our camp airstrip.
