Mopiri Camp

Ten spacious en-suite tents are set on the banks of Weboro Lagoon offering panoramic views. Long winding board walks between the main area and the tents offer guests privacy. The tents are light and airy and have seperate bathrooms with large rain showers, and twin sinks. Three of the tents are larger and perfect for young families.

The main area has a large dining room, with a separate lounge area. There is a substantial deck overlooking the lagoon with hidden seating areas and a fire pit, perfect for stargazing. The swimming pool is positioned with views over the flood plain.

The boma, in the middle of the island, is where traditional evenings are held and guests can enjoy the sounds of the Mopiri choir and taste local cuisine.

Meals are served in a variety of al fresco locations around the islands and camp. With one of the owners being a renowned chef, Mopiri offers guests a unique dining experience, with the option of local delicacies when available.

Guests will have the opportunity to explore deep into the Okavango Delta and experience camping out at one of our fly camps. Days can be spent walking and boating from island to island with our team of experienced guides and polers. After a long day walking, guests will arrive at camp and enjoy a 3 course meal around a roaring camp fire. We highly recommend this as it gives you the opportunity to incorporate all activities such as mokoro trips, bush walks, boat trips, fishing and village trips.
