The Okavango offers enormous quantities of game which migrate inwards from the parched Kalahari when the floodwaters from Angola arrive here.  It is Botswana's most famous and popular safari destination.  The view from the air offers a view unlike any other of the maze-lime channels of the Delta.

Deception Valley Lodge is a pristine oasis deep in the Kalahari Desert of Botswana and not far from the famous Okavango Delta. Experience the vastness of the Kalahari whilst enjoying abundant bird life, game viewing or star gazing by night.

The Okavango delta is characterised by multitude of waterways isolating many islands of differing sizes, the water originates high in northern Botswana before fanning out to form this wildlife sanctuary. It is between the Vumbura River and the Salinda spillway that the vast plains of NG12 are situated. On the edge of the Salinda spillway, as the river meanders along its course, a picturesque site was located for Kana Kara. Kana Kara is not a game lodge, but rather a semi permanent tented safari camp comprising 6 meru type tents, each with en-suite facilities and an outdoor shower. The facilities are modest yet comfortable, and are positioned to command uninterrupted views of the northern delta.

Elephant Valley Lodge lies between the Chobe National Park in Botswana and the equally impressive Matetsi wildlife conservancy, south of the Kazangula border crossing and within the Kasane Forest Reserve. The lodge overlooks an extremely productive water hole. Activities include daily safaris and boat cruises into the Chobe National Park. The unique lodge location provides guests with game viewing opportunities throughout the day and night.
