Gunn's Camp, overlooking the legendary Chief's Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve is set under leafy palms, blending naturally with its unique environs to offer comfort balanced by a rustic simplicity.
Your safari experience begins with a light aircraft transfer from Maun. Here you will be met at the private airstrip by the welcoming hosts and shown to your spacious tented accommodation and the elevated main lodge area. For those wishing for a little bit of Okavango romance, there is the Honeymoon suite, which is an elevated chalet with private verandah.
After refreshments you will plan your personal adventure together with experienced guides who have spent their lives accumulating knowledge and an understanding of the complex ecosystem of the Okavango Delta. You will set out with your guide in a mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) and explore the islands on foot.
Together, as you silently observe nature with minimal impact, you will begin to realise the privilege and quiet excitement of being in the magical Okavango Delta.
Chief's Island offers one of the largest remaining populations of African wildlife in the delta area, and sightings may include Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo, the elusive Wild Dog, Hippo, Crocodile and a variety of plains game from Zebra to Lechwe. Gunns Camp is also a birder's paradise, with over 240 species including the rare Pel's Fishing Owl and endangered Wattled Crane.
In the evenings as you relax in the main lodge, reflections of treasured memories are cast in the glow of a spectacular sunset. The newly refurbished main lodge boasts a welcoming and comfortable bar where guests can enjoy a drink while watching the African sun set over the Okavango.
Relax in the lounge area or enjoy delicious meals at the adjoining restaurant, which boast breathtaking views over the water lily studded lagoon and the far-reaching vistas of the Okavango flood plains and palm fringed islands.
Children over the age of 12 years are accepted on application and are to be under the full responsibility of their parents/guardians. (If Gunn's Camp is booked in its entirety, younger children may be accommodated.)
