Oddballs, as the name may suggest, is a bit different. It is actually a fantastic way of getting into a great area of the Delta at a reasonable price.

The camp does cater for a larger number of people than normal and the accommodation is unusually for a lodge… in dome tents. This is strictly a water camp and most of the excursions here are on mokoro. It is a fun place to be and delivers much for the price. Its the only 2 star camp in the whole of the Okavango Delta but that is only reflected in its very simple accommodation. Activities are still great and match those of the more expensive camps… However, it is not what you would regard as an “intimate” camp.

If you do wish to go a little up market then they do have a more intimate camp nearby called Oddballs Enclave, which you can see in the Related Group Lodges below..

Wildlife

Game of all sorts abounds: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippopotamus, crocodile, giraffe, antelope including the rare lechwe, tsessebe and sitatunga, otters, honey-badgers, the shy pangolin, and a variety of the smaller wild cats such as civets, servals and genets are amongst the many mammal species that visit the delta.

Reptiles are well represented – many species of snakes (most of them harmless) occur, as do several of tortoise, terrapin, lizard, skinks, chameleon and gecko – not forgetting, the Nile crocodile.

Then of course there are the birds, well over 450 species, that bring the forests, rivers and flood-plains of the Okavango to life. Many rare and endangered species call the Okavango home, and birders come from all around the world come in search of them.
