Okuti Camp is located in the northern section of the game rich Moremi Game Reserve, overlooking the permanent waterways of the Okavango Delta.

Okuti is a very comfortable and well run lodge (though called ‘camp’ it has the infrastructure of a lodge), with friendly staff and a good ambience. With just 7 unique and very spacious rooms, Okuti is an intimate and exclusive lodge, though it is worth noting that the Moremi Game Reserve is not as exclusive as the surrounding private concession areas, so you do see a few other vehicles on game drives. The game viewing in the area around Okuti is fantastic and there is a policy of maximum 4 guests on a vehicle for game drives which is great. Boat cruises are also superb, with extensive lagoons and waterways to explore. Being in the reserve also means more restrictions on activities (night drives, walks and fishing are not permitted) and the deep water around the lodge is not suitable for mekoro excursions. We therefore usually suggest combining Okuti with a second camp in the Okavango that can offer these activities. In a part of Africa that is generally very expensive, Okuti represents extremely good value for money when you consider the great location for game viewing and the quality of the camp.
