Gunn's Camp


In the Okavango Delta , overlooking the legendary Chiefs Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana, Gunn's Camp is one of the few remaining luxury, vintage African safari camps.


Set under leafy palms and African Ebony to blend naturally with its unique surroundings, the camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness. The main camp area at Gunn's features an elevated bar, lounge and dining room, campfire boma and swimming pool.


Tents at Gunn's Camp


The accommodations are in 6 deluxe tents with en suite bathrooms featuring standalone baths and outside private showers.


All 6 tents are discretely set within the densely treed island ensuring privacy and tranquility. Each has been traditionally furnished with an eclectic mixture of solid wood and African furniture and offers a lounge area as well as private veranda. The accommodation area is connected to the main camp via raised wooden walkway crossing the wetlands and magically lit by a series of fairy like lanterns lighting the path to the perfect African safari holiday experience.


Eco Friendly


Gunn's Camp is also leading the way in making the Okavango Delta as environmentally friendly as possible. The camp runs off a massive solar-panel, which feeds power to the entire camp. Hot water is supplied through a state-of-the-art solar-heated geyser system, delivering hot water to each room.


Activities at Gunn's Camp



• Mokoro excursions

Become part of the bustling river life by easing between the papyrus clad banks on traditional 'mokoro' canoes. These are propelled from the stern by skilled 'poler' guides, allowing the guests to sit back and absorb the scenery. For full day trips, Gunn's Camp prepares delicious picnic lunches which can be enjoyed on a Delta island after an exhilarating bush walk.



• Bush-Walks

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.



• Island Camping

The camp managers will pack your mokoro with basic camping equipment and food so that you can set out with your own personal guide to find an island where you will set up camp. The evening will be spent preparing dinner around the campfire in the company of Africa's nocturnal wildlife.



• Motor-boat sunset cruises

A great way to explore the crystal clear channels of the Boro River, motor-boat cruises are organised in time to toast the unprecedented African sunsets while drifting on a lagoon in the middle of the Okavango Delta. Watch as the mutating colors are reflected in the smooth waters, disturbed only by dipping swallows or curious hippos.
