Fodor's Review

Be sure to have your camera at the ready in this exclusive reserve that borders the Moremi Wildlife Reserve; you'll want to take pictures of everything. Spacious, comfortable tents on stilts are connected by raised wooden walkways that put you safely above the ground and give you a Tarzan's-eye view of the surrounding bush. You'll sleep in a luxurious, East African–style tent with wooden floors, two comfortable single beds, woven palm furniture, wrought-iron washstands,

and a private bath. A separate thatch dining room, bar, and lounge area, also linked by wooden walkways, looks out over a floodplain. Unfortunately, there are no vistas of water. The camp lies within the Botswana Wild Dog Research Project's research area, which has up to 160 dogs in packs of 10 to 12, so you're almost certain to see these fascinating "painted wolves." The area has a variety of habitats, from marshlands and riverine areas to open grasslands and seasonally flooded plains. Although it's on one of the most beautiful islands in the delta, it's not really a water camp because it doesn't

offer water activities.
