Overview

Okuti is a stylish, riverside camp in the Moremi National Park, part of the Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. A charming camp in one of Botswana’s prime areas for game viewing, this is a popular location with sweeping views and plentiful wildlife.

The main areas of camp are large, thatched rondavels housing the main reception, lounge and dining areas. There is also a decking area surrounding a small pool with beautiful views across the lagoon. The camp was refurbished in 2014, transforming the décor into a much more innovative, modern design. Influenced by the water surrounding the property, the atmosphere is calm and tranquil.

Activities at Okuti are focused on exploring the resident wildlife in the area. With consistent year round game viewing, drives in open top vehicles are led by experienced rangers throughout the Moremi National Park. It is worth noting that this is a highly visited area during the high season and often you will see other vehicles out on safari. Motorboat safaris are a huge highlight of this lodge with some excellent birds to be seen, especially during the breeding season. Heron, stork, white egrets and red cormorants can all be spotted in the ‘mini heronry’. Due to park restrictions night drives, walking safaris and off-roading are not permitted which does restrict any further activities.

The accommodation here is comprised of only five reed-lined rooms, a honeymoon suite and two family units. All the rooms are ensuite with indoor and outdoor showers and the honeymoon suite has a bathtub. Whilst the mosasa (ancient tribal word for house of reeds) are fairly close in proximity, each has its own private deck with lovely river views giving guests a sense of privacy.

Children seven years and over are welcome all year round at Okuti. The two family units are ideal accommodation for families, especially as it is rare to find interconnecting rooms in this area. Whilst no specific children’s programme is in place, guides will do their best to tailor activities around families.

This is a high quality camp with great staff and strong game viewing at a slightly lower cost than many other properties in the surrounding area.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
