Camp Okuti Camp Description
Offering a welcome touch of comfort, Camp Okuti has recently been rebuilt amidst the wilderness of one of Botswana’s prime game viewing regions. There are eight safari mosasas ( reed chalet ) with en-suite facilities and outdoor showers. Each chalet is built on a raised deck with river views.
Camp Okuti has an open air boma for guests to enjoy evenings around the camp fire. The main lounge and dining areas are under thatched roofs, with seating areas that give guests views of the surrounds. There is a plunge pool with deck overlooking the lagoon.
Camp Okuti Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Birdlife is prolific and varied at Camp Okuti, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers. There are many species of ducks and geese, as well as an amazing variety of heron. Elephants are numerous, particularly during the dry season, as well as a range of other wildlife species from buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, jackal and the full range of antelope, large and small, including the red lechwe. Wild dog, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling elsewhere, are regularly sighted in the Moremi.
Camp Okuti has a boat to take guests out on to the Xkanaxa Lagoon where experienced guides show guests all the hidden secrets of the Delta! Game drives are conducted in the morning.
Moremi is best visited in the dry season and game viewing is at its peak from July to October, when seasonal pans dry up and the wildlife concentrates on the permanent water. At any time of the year, game is prolific, although what is seen obviously varies with the season.
Experience game drives in the Moremi Game Reserve in specially designed safari vehicles, allowing unhindered views for game viewing and photography. Moremi is a park rich in wildlife and game viewing is consistent year round so it is ideal for the first time visitor to Botswana. In addition to game drives you can explore the delta waterways by motorboat – from open lagoons to winding channels it is a birder’s paradise, especially for herons and storks in the breeding season.
