Okuti makes stylish use of traditional design and adds a generous dollop of luxury in the Moremi Game Reserve inside the famous Okavango Delta of Botswana.
The architecture is an ingenious use of local materials and pioneering eco-design. The rooms are enormous reed domes on wooden decks beneath a thicket of trees on the edge of a gentle bend in the river.
Wooden walkways hover above the water, keeping the wilderness intact and maintaining the magical feeling of unearthly tranquility. The living area is dome-fronted mass of wooden decking facing the Xakanaka-bound river and the floodplains of the delta beyond.
Accommodation consists of five twin/double domes and two family units sleeping four each. Each unit has a large en suite bathroom with hot running water serving not one but two showers - the second being a delightful open-air option.
The main area has a high table dining area, an open deck - campfire story catalyst - and a large shaded lounge area. The furniture is handmade by local craftsman with great chunky logs and oversized cushions the raw materials.
En suite accommodation for up to 18 guests: 5 twin rooms and 2 family units; large private balcony overlooking the Maunachira River leading to the Xakanaka Lagoon in the Okavango Delta; elevated walkways connecting rooms to living area; living area has a large open-air dining area with campfire overlooking the river; shady lounge area; swimming pool; curio shop; children over 7 welcome (note: we may make exceptions for children younger than 7 years are possible on request subject to the lodge manager's safety assessment); game drives; boat safaris; birding safaris; air strip
Camp Okuti is a year-round lodge in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. Accessible by air or road, Okuti is relatively easy to reach making game drives into Moremi Game Reserve especially rewarding: plains game, aquatic mammals, birds, predators and of course, the Edenic scenery.
Water safaris are a delightful way to explore the Okavango and a safe way to approach elephant, hippo, crocodiles and the multitude of animals that drink at the water's edge including lions, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, leopard, hyena, wild dogs and a great variety of antelope.
