Day 7
This morning you will be transferred to Kasane Airport by your guide in time for your scheduled light aircraft charter flight to Oddballs Camp.

3 x Overnights at Oddballs Camp in a standard double chalet with private en-suite facilities inclusive of all meals, teas/coffees, snacks and game-viewing.

Allegedly named after Oddball; a man who lived up to his name! Oddball’s is a legend amongst travellers to Africa. One of the original camping sites in the Okavango Delta Oddball’s has 2m x 2m domed tents erected on raised wooden platforms, overlooking the floodplains and bush. There are a number of shower and toilet units scattered around the camp close to the tents – although perhaps not close enough at 3.00am with a Camp full of lion!!

For those seeking a bit more comfort, Oddballs has just one double bedded Chalet with en-suite facilities.

The only way to get to Oddball’s is by light aircraft, so being limited to 12Kg of baggage means that Oddballs supply all your camping equipment for you both at Oddballs itself and for your Mokoro Trails.

Whilst at Oddballs your meals are taken in the central dining area, directly overlooking the Boro River, and providing excellent game viewing whilst eating! There is a comfortable lounge area and a raised viewing platform right on the banks of the river. Hammocks are everywhere, and enable you to relax during the heat of the day whilst ‘cramming up’ on the wildlife and bird population from Oddball’s extensive library.

What sets Oddball’s apart from other safari lodges is the setting, the informality and above all the legendary ‘skull bar’, where you will be regaled with adventure stories which are surely amongst the ‘tallest’ in Africa!

The Okavango Delta is a shifting web of crystal-clear channels, lagoons, sweeping floodplains and palm-studded Falcons. Home to over 450 bird and 1,000 plant species, crocodile, hippo, elephant, buffalo – in fact the full spectrum of African big-game and several species of antelope that are amongst the world’s rarest – the Okavango has earned its reputation as one of the world’s premier wilderness areas.

During your stay at Oddball’s, you will have the opportunity to go out on Mokoro Trail. The first and last nights will be spent at Oddballs, and for the middle nights you take your guide and mokoro into the Okavango to camp out wherever you find yourselves – a wilderness experience par excellence.

Your Guide will find a suitable campsite on the banks of the river and build the fire for you. Whilst on Mokoro Trail your food will be provided but you will be responsible for its preparation.

The combination of Oddballs and a Mokoro Trail provides the best overall ‘Okavango Experience’ for those who don’t mind roughing-it a little.
