Okuti is located alongside the Maunachira River, as it flows into the Xakanaxa Lagoon in the heart of the Okavango delta, within the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. 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.
The Moremi Game Reserve is all about searching for big game; where the habitats are as diverse as the wildlife itself. Water-adapted antelopes and wary-eyed buffaloes spill out into floodplains, behind towering woodlands where leopards hide on the high branches. Dead trees cast silhouettes over elephant-filled savannas a stone’s throw from papyrus-fringed channels stretching out to the delta beyond.
When you arrive in the Moremi Game Reserve, it’s anyone’s guess what you’ll find lurking in the long grass. From wild dogs stalking waterbucks to long sunsets by a hippo-filled lagoon, the scenes will live on in memory long after the journey home.
This luxury camp is designed in the African village style, accommodating a maximum of eighteen guests. Accommodation is in stylish and spacious units, each on raised platforms and containing en-suite bathrooms, featuring an outdoor shower with an incredible view. Camp Okuti is also extremely family friendly and boasts two family units with two rooms sharing a bathroom. Okuti Camp features an open dining area with stunning views across the lagoon, outdoor boma area and a swimming pool.
Activities offered are game drives in open safari vehicles exploring the diverse range of habitats within the reserve – from open floodplains to belts of mopane woodland. Guests can also venture out onto the open waters of the Okavango by motorboat, visiting the Xakanaxa Lagoon and beyond up to the seasonal heronry at Gadikwe. Moremi Game Reserve offers some of the most spectacular game viewing in Botswana and guests may encounter breeding herds of elephant, a hunting lioness or a sleeping pride of lion, grazing impalas, kudus and much more.
