4 NIGHTS SPIRIT OF THE OKAVANGO

The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest inland deltas situated in the middle of the largest stretch of continuous sand in the world – the Kalahari basin. This oasis in the middle of the desert is a rich yet fragile ecosystem, providing a life source for an incredible variety of wildlife. A wealth of species have adapted to the contrasting conditions created by living in the harsh Kalahari desert which is transformed annually with the arrival of the delta flood waters originating in Angola.

Moremi Game Reserve is surrounded by wildlife management areas of the Okavango, with no boundaries between the concessions and the reserve allowing wildlife to move between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The Khwai area is managed by the community (the River Bushman) through the Khwai Development Trust. This area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve itself. A key advantage of being outside the reserve is the freedom to do walking safaris and night drives as the area is not governed by the same rules.

ACCOMMODATION

The accommodation offered at Gunn’s Camp consists of 6 deluxe Kenyan-style meru tents with en-suite bathrooms featuring standalone baths and outside private showers. Set on raised platforms overlooking the delta plains Gunn’s Camp is ideal for honeymooners or guests looking for a more intimate and personalised safari experience.

The accommodation offered at Machaba Camp consists of 8 luxury twin tents and 2 luxury family tents.
