The journey to Okuti is the beginning of the fun – guests travel by light aircraft into Xakanaxa airstrip then take a camp 4×4 to their accommodation in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana.
What a way to start a safari in this magnificent reserve in Botswana, one of Africa’s best game viewing areas and one boasting a cross section of lush ecosystems and habitats for water and land creatures and plants!
Okuti Camp in the Moremi Game Reserve is cleverly designed along the lagoon frontage, so that you get the most of water and bush views. See spectacular birds, reptiles and mammals while relaxing under the beehive styled thatched roofs of the main camp.
It is here that wooden floors, comfy woven seating and a range of African carvings greet you and where you will relax in modern yet traditionally designed social areas. The deck stretches out towards a plunge pool where you can sip sun downers later on.
The seven chalets situated along the front of the Xakanaxa Lagoon are modern yet rustic in an African way – what you see is strange tunnel like structures covered in plastic but when you enter this accommodation, you are surprised by the reed-lined walls, the natural warmth and the views from the private balconies – this is architectural innovation at its best and sets Okuti apart from other camps in the Moremi Game Reserve! Families will love the larger chalets with their two bedrooms and all rooms have wooden floors and similar designs, featuring en-suite bathrooms, outside showers and complimentary toiletries. The honeymoon suite boasts a large oval bathtub and oozes romance and privacy. The main reason you are there however is to see wild animals in their natural habitats and this you get to do on rewarding game drives, on motorboat cruises up and down the lush waterways to see breeding birds and graceful antelope.
This is the holiday in Africa that you have always dreamed about – the safari where everything counts but nothing else matters besides your luxurious accommodation, nouvelle cuisine and five star service!
