Mma Dinare

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Mma Dinare means ‘Mother Buffalo’ and is the newest camp to come into the Under One Botswana Sky portfolio. The location is great on the eastern edge of the Okavango Delta. While we found the wildlife viewing top notch, we found the staff and service needing some improvement.

Mma Dinare is set in a private concession, adjacent to Moremi Game reserve on the south-eastern side of the Delta. It overlooks the Gomoti River and its flood plains and the camp has been designed to embrace the natural surroundings. The nearby river system attracts a wide variety of game. Familiar favorites include: Elephant, Buffalo, Giraffe, Kudu, Impala, Tsessebe, Hippo, Crocodile, Genet, Honey Badger and a host of Plains Game. Rare Antelope breeds including Roan, Sable & Eland, not normally seen in the Okavango region, occur here. As the Gomoti is the main water source in the area, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog come down to the riverside to drink and hunt, of course!

Day and night game drives take place in the private concession adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve. These are on and off road safaris, comprising six people, a guide and a tracker (at night). Mma Dinare also offers seasonal water activities on the Gomoti river and game walks available depending on local conditions. Mokoros are water level dependent.

Accommodation consists of nine stylish tents, including a family tent all of which overlook the Gomoti River. Both central areas have been built in keeping with our other properties - open, thatched spaces that allow guests to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings, whilst watching wildlife and birds from the comfort of an armchair or the bar. The swimming pool and curio shop at each camp complete the luxurious, relaxed feel.
