Gunns Camps

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Gunns Camp is a great value option in the Okavango Delta with emphasis on water activities and walks on Chiefs Island.

Overlooking the legendary Chiefs Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Gunns Camp is one of the last few remaining luxury, vintage safari camps. Set under leafy palms and African Ebony trees to blend naturally with its unique surroundings, Gunns Camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness. The accommodation at Gunns Main Camp consists of six fully furnished, deluxe Meru-style tents with en-suite bathrooms set on raised platforms overlooking the delta plains and any passing wildlife. The honeymoon suite is built into one of the ancient African Ebony trees and demands unsurpassable views of the meandering waterways. The island is connected to the main camp by a small causeway crossing the wetlands and magically lit by a series of fairylike lanterns. Guests have access to the elevated bar, lounge and dining room, campfire boma and swimming pool.

Explore the wilderness on foot under the guidance and education of your own personal guide. Feel your senses ignite as you become part of life in the bush and encounter game without the parameters of a vehicle. Float the peaceful channels of the Boro River in motor boats or wooden mokoros and watch the sunset over the lagoons. Expert guides will lead you about the waterways and bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grassy banks during a nature walk. Among the wildlife there are elephants, hippos, myriad birds and many others.
