Day 4 - 7: Gunn’s Camp - Okavango Delta

Situated in the western Okavango Delta and overlooking Chiefs Island and the Moremi Game Reserve, Gunn’s Camp is set under leafy palms and African Ebony and blends naturally with its unique surroundings.

Gunn’s Camp achieves a good balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness. Accommodation at Gunn’s Camp is good with 6 newly rebuilt Kenyan-style Meru tents with en-suite bathrooms featuring standalone baths and outside private showers. Tents are set on platforms overlooking the delta flood plains. An ideal camp for honeymooners or guests looking for a personal safari experience. Each tent is discretely set within the densely wooded island ensuring privacy and tranquillity. Furnished with an eclectic mixture of solid wood and African furniture tents at Gunn’s Camp offer a sitting area as well as a private veranda.

Tents are connected to the main area via a raised wooden walkway, lit with lanterns at night, allowing access across the flood plain. The public areas consist of a lounge, elevated main bar and dining room with a campfire and swimming pool. Leading the way in the Okavango Delta, Gunn’s Camp runs off a solar panel, which powers the entire camp. Hot water is generated by a state-of-the-art solar-heated geyser system which delivers hot water to each room.

Activities include mokoro excursions, which allow guests to experience the fascinating river life as they slip between the papyrus clad banks of the Okavango Delta on traditional ‘mokoro’ canoes. Propelled from the stern by skilled ‘poler’ guides, these trips allow the guest to sit back and absorb the scenery. For full-day trips, Gunn’s Camp can prepare delicious picnic lunches which can be enjoyed on a Delta island after an exhilarating bush walk.

Guests can also explore the islands of the Okavango Delta on foot under the guidance of a professional guide. These walks are a fantastic way to experience the delta at a more human scale than with a vehicle.

Additionally, Gunn’s Camp will pack your mokoro with basic camping equipment and food allowing guests to set out with their guide and find a nearby island to camp on. The evening will be spent preparing dinner around the campfire in the company of Africa’s nocturnal wildlife.

Motorboats allow guests to explore the crystal-clear channels of the Boro River. These cruises are organized in time to toast the African sunsets while drifting on a lagoon in the middle of the Okavango Delta.
