Welcome to Pelo 

  • Just 5 traditional guest tents 
  • Set atop a beautiful Heart shaped Island 
  • One of the best value camps in Botswana 
  • Excellent birdlife and general game viewing 
  • Swimming pool and stylish man guest areas 

We love Pelo Camp. This is the kind of safari camp that is almost nonexistent anywhere else in the Delta. Being of the classic pioneering safari style of days long ago, the atmosphere generated here is truly wonderful and timeless. 

From the air you are immediately struck by the heart shape of the island conjuring romantic notions of the camp before you step foot in it. This is then amplified by the relaxed manor in which the camp operates, knowing instinctively when to be servicing your wishes and when to pull back. 

Unusually, this camp is a reasonably priced option given the company it is in within this concession. In our opinion though nothing suffers, and the standards of service and quality of the camp remains high. The cost difference can be attributed to it being an Island camp and not being able to offer a traditional vehicle safari or big game walking safaris. 

The wildlife and birdlife is very good year round but safari life here is generally more genteel. The Papyrus laden waterways that take you to the main game viewing areas are beautiful with birdlife, insect life and amphibians taking center stage along the way. 

We do really love this camp and as a combination with a predominantly dry camp further south or North east of Pelowould be a perfect combination especially if needing to keep an eye on the costs.
