A welcome addition to the stunningly beautiful Jao Concession, Pelo Camp offers great value for money as a true ‘wet’ camp in the Okavango Delta. Located over in the central eastern region of the concession, Pelo Island was once a mobile camping site and, as it was so good, has since become a simple but very charming, tented camp to use as a base for water activities.
Kwando, Linyanti and Selinda
Deserving of a section in its own right, these three private concessions sit between the Kwando and the Chobe Rivers and provide a valuable source of permanent water for northern Botswana and the animals that head north into the Chobe National Park as the Kalahari dries to the south. This is a region of marshland, riparian forest and river systems that have flowed from Angola and flow on to the Chobe River and on to the Zambezi.
Kafue National Park
Located in the centre of Zambia is Kafue National Park, and at a size of 22,400 square kilometres (approximately the same size as Wales), Kafue is the country’s largest national park. Although it is a lesser-visited area, Kafue homes a variety of areas and plains, offering diverse landscapes, geography, birding and wildlife.
As part of the Governor’s Collection, and owned by a community trust, Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is sat in the foothills of the mighty Virunga mountains. Its remote location offers remarkable views and its relationship with the community means that a wealth of activities aside from gorilla trekking are available.
