Mma Dinare Camp
Mma Dinare Camp: Our View
Mma Dinare is a new camp adjacent to Moremi Game reserve on the south eastern side of the Delta, overlooking the Gomoti River and its flood plains.
Located in the 'game-centric' Dinare private concession overlooking the Gomoti River, guests staying at Mma Dinare have been enthralled spectators watching leopard and wild dog come down to the riverside to drink and hunt. As Dinare's name suggests, the area is well known for its buffalo with huge breeding herds traversing the concession in their hundreds, often closely shadowed by lion. With a feel of the Linyanti and certain areas of Khwai, the 67,000 acre Dinare concession borders the world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve on the remote south eastern fringes of the Okavango Delta. Due to its mixed habitat of wetlands, savannahs, drier Acacia and Mopane woodlands, the Dinare concession supports an outstandingly diverse abundance of big game, herbivores (from Red Lechwe and Waterbuck to Roan and Sable), impressive carnivores and myriad of birdlife all year round.
Construction of the camp started in May last year at the same time that sister camp, Rra Dinare became operational. Rra Dinare and Mma Dinare – meaning respectively father and mother of buffaloes – are both located in NG 34 private concession of the Okavango Delta. The concession is famed for its many buffalo herds, hence the names.
