Riverside beauty flows within Okuti Camp.
Okuti Camp lies alongside the Maunachira River which flows through Xakanaxa Lagoon within the world renowned Moremi Game Reserve, Okuti is built amidst the wilderness of one of Botswana’s prime game viewing regions. Refurbishment of Okuti took place at the beginning of 2014 and draws its influence from water which flows in front of the camp, with its abundant birdlife, fish and sandy river banks, it remains an oasis of serenity and peacefulness.
Situated in the heart of the world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve, guests can experience unhindered views in specially-designed safari vehicles. Moremi Game Reserve is rich in wildlife, and its consistent year-round game viewing makes it ideal for the first time visitors to Botswana. Guests can also explore the Okavango Delta waterways by motorboat, and the areas open lagoons and winding channels make it a birder’s paradise, complete with herons and storks in the breeding season.
We are proud of all our camps and so it is hugely rewarding when safari experts and fellow travellers single us out for special praise. We are really excited to announce that Okuti has again been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.

“We enjoyed the stay very much. Quite an peaceful. Fabulous team. We experienced wonderful game drive and the dinner under open sky was a dream. The common dance (at least the attempt) was a wonderful experience. We will come back.” – zuezisailor
“I can’t say enough positive things about our experience. The safari activities, staff, and food all exceeded expectations. The camp management personnel were warm, attentive and went the extra mile. Chachos (safari guide) did so as well, making sure everyone got great views and had the time for photos; he was also adept and persistent in jumping on opportunities when they arose (particularly with regard to the big cats). The food was restaurant quality with regional flair. Meals and cocktails were attended by camp staff who were both warm and informative about Botswana and its culture.” – TBAtlanta
