Mango Opinion

Guma is a rustic camp that focuses on the Okavango water & fishing experiences.

Guma Lagoon Camp is situated along the banks of the Guma Lagoon on the northwestern side of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. iT is truly a fisherman's paradise and bird watchers haven. Accommodation is provided in canvas chalets each with their own private view of the lagoon. Each chalet accommodates two people with lovely teak beds and en-suite bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets. Mosquito nets and towels are also provided and the staff can prepare extra bedding to accommodate children.

Whether fly-fishing or spin fishing, the Okavango River is undoubtedly one of the best freshwater sport fishing rivers found anywhere in Southern Africa. Guma Lagoon is one of the most rewarding locations for both beauty and bounty. Fishing takes place in the channels and waterways around camp: the Guma area comprises many small lagoons, countless small palm fringed islands, narrow winding waterways amongst dense papyrus and reeds and the expansive Guma Lagoon itself. Depending on the season, the prominent species caught while fishing the lagoon are catfish, African pike, red breasted tilapia, three spot tilapia and purple face large-mouth. Additional activities include a choice of day trips or overnight camping mokoro trails that take you into the heart of the Okavango and and horseback excursions in which you can follow in the footsteps of the hippo where he grazed the night before while exploring the flood plains that surround Guma Lagoon.
