Set along the banks of the Okavango Delta, guests at Gunn’s Camp can explore the endless waterways to discover an abundance of wildlife or simply sit and wait for the wild to wander past.  

Gunn’s Camp is one of the last few remaining luxury vintage safari camps overlooking the legendary Chief’s Island.

Bordering Moremi Game Reserve, the eco-friendly camp lies under leafy palms and African Ebony trees, blending naturally with its unique surroundings, creating a delicate balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness. 

Gunn’s Camp comprises six fully furnished, deluxe Meru tents with ensuite bathrooms on raised platforms overlooking the delta plains. The accommodation area is connected to the main camp via raised wooden walkways crossing the wetlands and magically lit by fairy-like lanterns. Guests can enjoy the high bar, lounge and dining room, campfire boma and the sparkling pool. 

The top deck boasts a large bar with magnificent views overlooking Chief’s Island, and the dining deck is on two separate levels. 

Experience & Activities 

Explore the wilderness with our game drives, guided bush walks, or sit back and absorb the scenery from a traditional mokoro canoe. Another great way to explore the crystal-clear channels of the Boro River is by motorboat. Watch the sunset whilst drifting along a lagoon and sipping sundowners.  

Game drives will be available only when water levels are low. There will be no game drives when water levels are high as concession areas become inaccessible. Mokoros, boat cruises and fishing are also water level dependent. 

For the adventurous, Gunn’s Camp also offers a rustic island camping experience, complete with a private guide. 

Accommodations 

  • Standard Tent: Gunn’s Camp consists of six fully furnished, deluxe Meru tents with ensuite bathrooms featuring stand-alone baths and outside private showers. The tents feature an eclectic mixture of solid wood and African furniture, with a lounge area and a private veranda. 
  • Honeymoon Suite: Gunn’s Camps also offers a romantic honeymoon suite with an ensuite bathroom, private balcony and elevated position to offer exceptional views. 
  • Adventure Camping: Adventure Camping is on offer for a supplemental rate which involves packing up a mokoro with camping equipment and going with a professional guide out into the Delta for 1 or 2 nights. Moremi Crossing and Gunn’s Camp have exclusive walking rights on Chief’s Island, and there is no better way to get close to the birds and animals of the Delta.
