Okuti comprises of 5 twin-bedded Mosasa (tribal word for ‘house of reeds’), each with en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor shower, hot and cold running water and flush toilet whilst the honeymoon unit also features a bathtub.
An additional two family units consist of two bedrooms which share spacious bathroom facilities – ideal for families in this child-friendly camp. All of the Mosasas are positioned on raised teak decking overlooking the river. .
Activities at the camp involve Day game drives, motorboat, and birding
Boating activities are dependent on water levels
Season: 1st March – 5th January Winter months (June, July and August) are marked by cloudless days and mild temperatures (average is 5-27°C).
In the Okavango Delta, the floodwaters from Angola start to fill the countless lagoons and streams.
Spring months (late August through September) are a wonderful time to visit Botswana. The timing, between the cold of winter and the intense heat before the rains, ensures temperatures of 15-31°C.
It heats up toward the end of September and into October where highs can reach above 40°C. Game viewing is excellent due to the lack of thick vegetation and the water holes are drying up.
Summer months (November, early December through to March) enjoy temperatures averaging 16-35°C. These months include the rainy season (generally Jan/Feb), when you may encounter brief heavy downpours and thunderstorms. This period can offer excellent good game viewing as wildlife drop their young once the rains come transforming the dry land into a vibrant abundance of lush greenery. Birding is particularly good with the arrival of migrant species during December.
Autumn months (April and May) are marked by moderate temperatures, 15-30°C, which is a lovely time to visit Botswana with the lands lush and green after the summer rains.
