Description

Okuti offers a unique kind of accommodation for your safari in the Moremi Game Reserve, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Set right on the water, it is an ideal base for exploring this wildlife-rich region and is a really family-friendly camp.

Okuti is a beautiful and architecturally unique camp that sits overlooking a river within the Moremi Game Reserve, right in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Stay in one of the curved reed and thatch mosasa rooms (an ancient tribal word for house of reeds), each perched on the water's edge and offering a superb view of the reeds, birdlife and wildlife wandering past.

The wildlife in the region is diverse and found in good numbers, making it a great base for your safari adventures. Returning to the camp in the heat of the day and evenings, you are greeted by the sound of the breeze fluttering through the reeds, offering a tranquil retreat where you can relax. Activities include game-drives with knowledgeable guides and boat trips through the Delta's lagoons and channels.

There are eight mosasas here, one of which is a honeymoon room and two are family rooms which each have two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. The camp caters well to youngsters, with children aged 7 and above welcome year-round. Each of the tents is ensuite with indoor and outdoor showers, and all raised up on wooden decks to make the most of the Delta views.

The main camp has a lovely lounge area with canvas roof and open sides to make the most of the surroundings. There's also a swimming pool, providing welcome relief during the hotter months of the year.

Experiences

  • Game Drives in Botswana

    Viewing wildlife from a vehicle is the best way to get up close to big game. Allow your professional safari guide to cover ground to guarantee you some unforgettable sightings in Africa's premier safari destination.

  • Game drives in the Okavango

    One of the best ways to see the big game of Botswana's Okavango Delta is on a game drive with a knowledgeable guide. Explore in open-sided vehicles to maximize your viewing opportunities, this is a truly wildlife rich environment.

  • Helicopter ride over the Delta

    The Okavango Delta is a vast patchwork of deep-water channels, shallow lagoons and date palm islands, fringed with the ubiquitous papyrus reeds. A doors-off scenic helicopter flight is an exhilarating way to take in these sights and a real treat, too!

  • Mokoro trips in Botswana

    Botswana's northern safari areas are full of water channels just waiting to be explored. Larger boats can be used to explore the wider channels but for the aficionado, mokoro trips into the smaller channels are a real treat. Always subject to waterlevels

  • Walking Safaris and Nature Walks

    Walking in the African bush with a professional safari guide is a fantastic experience. Enjoy a completely different perspective on foot than from a vehicle.
