Gunns Camp: Our View
Gunns Camp used to be a pure ‘water’ or ‘wet’ camp. This means that much of the area around the camp is water with pockets of dry land. However, water levels in this western area of the Okavango Delta have dropped to such a degree that camp activities have had to be modified to now also include one game drive daily.
Gunns Camp is one of our real favourites because it is so well priced compared to other similar camps and it has a great location overlooking the wet or dry plains (seasonal) of the Okavango Delta. It is one of two camps in this area owned by the same operator(the other camp being Moremi Crossing Camp which is much larger but cheaper).
The fact that it is very intimate with only 6 rooms, and that the rooms and communal areas are of exceptionally high spec for a camp in this price bracket really adds to its appeal.
Overall, Gunns is a gorgeous little camp which works especially well as part of a longer safari itinerary. It offers a special experience and its reasonable price helps to keep the cost down.

Gunns Camp: The Details
Gunns Camp is beautifully located, surrounded by the seasonal floodplains of the Okavango Delta. From the moment you arrive there is a real feeling of tranquillity and relaxation!
The 6 tented rooms are accessed from the main camp along a raised walk way which is very prettily lit at night. They are well spaced apart to give lots of privacy. Each one is very smartly furnished with a separate lounge area, en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower and bathtub and a large private deck.
The two story communal lounge/dining area has beautiful views over the surrounding floodplains and river. There is also a swimming pool with loungers covered by thatched roofs in the garden area.
Gunns Camp offers one game drive daily as well as mokoro and walking safaris - altogether a high quality game viewing and diverse safari experience which allow clients to really learn about the amazing eco system that is the Okavango Delta. Many camps in Botswana have stopped offering walking safaris but this activity is always offered at Gunns Camp and is a fantastic opportunity for clients to view animals from a very different perspective.
