Since this area normally receives floods last it contains some of the closest dry-season watering
points for the game that spreads out towards Nxai and Makgadikgadi Pans during the rains. Around
this, there is a high density of game in the dry season but since quite a lot of the reserve is mopane
woodlands (a favourite location for animals during the rains and early dry season) good game viewing is expected all year round. This river system attracts a wide variety of game. Familiar favourites 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! The locations and views are spectacular with the classic flooding of the Okavango across the adjacent seasonal floodplains. For those keen on bird-watching, the combination of the wetlands and the drier Acacia and Mopane veldt provide a perfect habitat for a variety of aquatic species including Open Billed Storks, Hammerkops, Egrets, Ibis and forest/savannah dwellers including Raptors, Shrikes, Drongos, Sunbirds, Ground Hornbills and so on.
Rra Dinare is set in a private 272 km2 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. This is a 100% eco-friendly development, featuring the latest in solar and waste technology.
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). Rra 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 eight stylish tents, including a guide's tent and a family tent, all of which overlook the Gomoti River floodplains.
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 for which Under One Botswana Sky safaris are known.
Overlooking the legendary Chief’s Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Gunn's 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, eco-friendly Gunn's Camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness.
At Gunn’s Camp, set along the papyrus-clad banks of the Okavango Delta, one becomes part of the bustling river life. Explore the wilderness with our game drives, guided bush walks, or sit back and absorb the scenery from a traditional 'mokoro' canoe. Another great way to explore the crystal clear channels of the Boro River is by motor-boat. Watch the sun set whilst drifting along a lagoon and sipping sundowners. For the adventurous, we also offer a rustic island camping experience. Game drives will be available only when water levels are low. There will be no game drives when water levels are high as areas of the concession become inaccessible. Mokoros, boat cruises & fishing are also water level dependent.
Deluxe Meru Tents
Set on raised platforms overlooking the delta plains, Gunn's Camp consists of six, fully furnished, deluxe Meru tents with en-suite bathrooms featuring stand-alone baths and outside private showers. All our tents are furnished with an eclectic mixture of solid wood and African furniture, with a lounge area and a private veranda.
The accommodation area is connected to the main camp via raised wooden walkways crossing the wetlands and magically lit by fairy-like lanterns. All our guests can enjoy the elevated bar, lounge and dining room, our campfire boma and the sparkling pool.
The top deck boasts a large bar with magnificent views overlooking Chief’s Island and the dining deck is on two separate levels.
Moremi Crossing is a 16 tent, eco friendly camp built on a palm fringed island surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains and overlooking Chief's Island.
