Safari Activities at Gunns Camp

The main activities at Gunns Camp are mokoro and powerboat excursions (water levels permitting) along the many nearby channels and lagoons.

Guests can enjoy activities such as mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) excursions, game walks with a licensed guide and motor boating. Be advised that water levels change with the seasons, determining the nature and focus of activities during your stay.

A typical day starts with a light breakfast or fully cooked breakfast served to fit in with your activities. A morning activity is taken – as planned with your guide/Camp Managers and return to camp for lunch and a siesta. Afternoon tea is served, after which you can enjoy an afternoon activity until sunset, where you return to camp as per the regulations of Moremi Game Reserve.

Spend the night camping on one of the islands. Camp managers will pack your mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) with basic camping equipment and food so you can set off with your guide to find the ideal island to spend the night on. Prepare meals around a campfire while listening to the nocturnal African wildlife.

A 2 course dinner in the dining room or a barbecue dinner at the campfire is served and the evening can be enjoyed relaxing in the lounge or around the campfire. It is also an option to take a full day trip with picnic lunch if planned with the Camp Managers.

It is suggested that you bring lightweight, cool clothing in summer i.e. October to May. It is the rainy season from November to February so bring a jacket or something to keep you dry. In the winter months of June to September it can be very cool in the mornings and evenings so bring something warm with you.

Wide brimmed hats, high factor sunscreen, mosquito repellent and flashlights should not be forgotten. Particularly for visitors outside of Botswana it is recommended you take a course of anti-malaria tablets prescribed by your doctor. Remember to take these before, during and after your stay in the Delta.
