Mokolwane is an intimate camp, boasting just 7 charming Tents, perfectly set above the ground amongst shady bows of fig, jackalberry, ilala palm and wild mangosteens. Set within one of the largest, and almost untouched, parts of the Okavango Delta the, Xudum concession (NG29) is tucked away within 200 000-hectares of wilderness. Teeming with herds of elephant and all the Okavango predators, with so much space and an abundance of action, it’s no surprise that National Geographic and Netflix filmmaker Brad Bestelink has chosen to base himself at Mokolwane, also known as The Leopard County! These territorial cats love this region, and therefore this area boasts the third highest density recorded anywhere in Africa. Mokolwane is a special little camp, big on adventure. And being the only camp for miles around, it is a great place to breathe in the stillness and solitude.
Each of the 7 Tents at Mokolwane offers an en-suite bathroom and comfortable interiors, emanates an earthly charm. Set on the Matsebi river system you’ll find yourself amongst the shade, enjoying spectacular views which turn emerald as the floodwaters roll in.
NG29 situated on the south-western corner of the Okavango Delta, is one of the largest concessions in Botswana and a vast wilderness area that is virtually untouched. A drive around the whole concession would take a number of days. The eco-system here is diverse. For birds and wildlife, it is a playground of open grasslands, fertile floodplains, crystal clear lagoons, reeded islands, riverine and mopane forests, creating a wonderfully varied landscape for them to live in. Open savannah gives way to small expanses of floodplain, and leadwood thickets, mangosteens, marulas, sausage trees and wild sage punctuate the wilderness.
Teeming with herds of elephant and all the exciting predators, with so much space and so much action, it’s no surprise that National Geographic and Netflix filmmaker Brad Bestelink has chosen to base himself here. Between 5,000 to 10,000 elephants are in the concession at various times of the year and the buffalo herds that come through are also in large numbers. Giraffe and zebra are joined by wildebeest, and all the antelope from kudu, lechwe, bushbuck, tsessebe, to name but a few.
