|Address:||Ntswi Island, Okavango Delta, Botswana|
Overlooking the legendary Chiefs 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 to blend naturally with its unique surroundings, Gunn's Camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without
isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness.
Your African experience starts with a twenty minute light aircraft transfer from Maun over the south-western Delta, taking in the magnificence of the winding, papyrus fringed channels that make up one of the worlds greatest wet land wonders. You will be able to see some of Africa's most celebrated animals from a bird's eye view - 500 FT above the ground.
The flagship accommodation offering at Gunn's Main Camp consists of seven fully furnished, deluxe Kenya-style meru tents with en-suite bathrooms set on raised platforms overlooking the delta plains. The honeymoon suite is built into one of the ancient African Ebony trees and demands unsurpassable views of the meandering waterways. The island is connected to the main camp by a small causeway crossing the wetlands and magically lit by a series of fairylike lanterns. Guests have access to the elevated bar, lounge and dining room, campfire boma and swimming pool
Gunn's Bush Camp occupies the opposite end of the extensive delta concession and functions to ensure a wonderful sense of freedom in the wilderness. Facilities include a large wooden viewing deck built over the river, the notorious Bush Camp Cave Bar and a sparkling swimming pool surrounded by tall ebony palm trees. Delicious two course meals are served from the rustic restaurant and can be enjoyed under the stars or around the campfire. There are two types of accommodation at Gunn's Bush Camp:
Gunn's Bush Camp, Antelope accommodation proudly offers the only accommodation of its kind in the Delta. With its eight mini-meru tents with full beds and linen it finds the middle ground between luxury accommodation and camping. Each tent boasts its own private wooden deck and is set on the banks of the Boro River and guests have access to shared bathroom facilities with traditional hand crafted finishes.
For the adventure market, Gunn's Bush Camp, Buffalo Accommodation offers pre -erected, 2-man dome tents with bed rolls (including mattress, pillow and blankets),making the Delta experience accessible to large groups and the budget conscious traveller. These too are set on wooden decks on the bank of the Boro River and guests have access to a spacious ablution area designed to ensure privacy.
Our activities are mokoro excursions and guided game walks on Chief's Island which is part of the Moremi Game Reserve, and just across the Boro River that separates it from Ntswi Island. Two guests are allocated one guide who then transports them in his mokoro to various sections of the game reserve where they commence their walk. Guides converse in English and point out not only big game, but also bird life and plant life. Guests can learn anything from plants and their medicinal uses, to birds and their calls. It is an amazing way to experience the delta and many guests leave appreciating the smaller life as opposed to just the normal big five!
Our Main Camp clients are also offered a motor boat cruise on the day of arrival. This is dependant on water levels - and generally can only be offered in High Season - June to September. Bush Camp guests can request a boat cruise, at an additional cost, and subject to availability.
