Swamp Stop Rest Camp
Swamp Stop is a camp site situated on the banks of the main Okavango River, just outside the village of Sepupa. Camp is approximately 60 km south of Shakawe and 330 km from Maun. The main tarmac road from Sehitwa to Shakawe will take you past Sepupa where you will turn right / left (depending on your direction) into the village of Sepupa, then again a right turn will take you on a gravel road for 2.5 km to the camp.
Swamp Stop is
primarily a camp site where hosts welcome the self-drive / do-it-yourself
camper / traveller / overlander. Hosts do have fixed twin tents with bedding
and hope to have a few chalets. Camp has recently acquired mains electricity
and hope to eventually have a power point in each camp site.
Hosts offer a fully stocked bar, evening meal & full breakfast (if booked in advance), bar snacks are also available throughout the day. Two swimming pools and a large ablution block, to make your stay both enjoyable & comfortable.
Whilst camp staff do not offer mokoro trails direct from our camp, they can transfer you and your party to Seronga + - 90 minutes by motor boat where you can deal direct with the Umvuvu Rest Camp, for the true mokoro trail experience. Tsodilo Hills, famous for their bushman paintings are approximately 60 km from Swamp Stop, easily accessible for either a daytrip or overnight stay.
