Cuisine and Wine
Cuisine at Pelo Camp is unpretentious yet really good, all in the same breathe. All meals are served either in the communal dining tent or outside in the traditional boma area. Private dinners can be arranged for those special occasions (please advise us beforehand).
Please advise us beforehand should you have any special dietary requests.
The central guest area comprises of two large tents areas, one the lounge area with leather couches and your typical safari style decor, the other being the indoor dining area with a large dining table for those scrumptious meals during the day. In front of these two dented structures is a wooden viewing deck with views that will amaze, especially at sunset.
A small swimming pool is found just in front of the central guest area, the views from here are outstanding.
Safari activities are waterbased either in mekoro's or motor boats, there is nothing quite like viewing Botswana's wildlife, birdlife, insects, reptiles, amphibians and flora from the waters of the Okavango Delta.
Guided nature walks are on offer but need to be pre-booked to secure a guide. Fishing on a catch and release basis is a must, Pelo does offer guests a small stock of basic rods and reels for use (no fly-fishing equipment is available, you will have to bring your own).
Note: Game drives are not offered at Pelo due to location (there are no roads or anyways of getting vehicles to the camp).
Should you be interested in a scenic helicopter flight over the surrounding Okavango waterways is an optional extra, highly recommended by us at Uyaphi.com. Please note that this activity does need to be booked before arriving at Pelo.
Pelo Camp welcomes children aged 13 years and older.
