Situated on the 67,00 acre Gomoti Concession the delta’s newest camp is already attracting interest
Rra Dinare is situated on a private concession adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve on the southeastern side of the Delta, overlooking the Gomoti River and its flood plains, this camp is located in a private concession of 67,000 acres and have been designed to embrace the natural surroundings of the riverine forest. The camp consists of eight tents.
The central area has been built in keeping with Under One Botswana Sky’s other properties with open, thatched space allowing guests to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings while watching wildlife and birds from the comfort of an armchair or the bar. The swimming pool and curio shop complete the luxurious, relaxed feel that Under One Botswana Sky safaris are known for.
Since this area normally receives floods last it contains some of the closest dry-season watering points for the game that spreads out towards Nxai and Makgadikgadi Pans during the rains. Around this, there is a high density of game in the dry season but since quite a lot of the reserve is mopane woodlands (a favourite location for animals during the rains and early dry season) good game viewing is expected all year round.
This river system attracts a wide variety of game. Familiar favourites include Elephant, Buffalo, Giraffe, Kudu, Impala, Tsessebe, Hippo, Crocodile, Genet, Honey Badger and a host of Plains Game. Rare Antelope breeds including Roan, Sable & Eland, not usually seen in the Okavango region, occur here. As the Gomoti is the primary water source in the area, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog come down to the riverside to drink and hunt, of course! The locations and views are spectacular with the classic flooding of the Okavango across the adjacent seasonal floodplains. For those keen on bird-watching, the combination of the wetlands and the drier Acacia and Mopane veldt provide a perfect habitat for a variety of aquatic species including Open Billed Storks, Hammerkops, Egrets, Ibis and forest/savannah dwellers including Raptors, Shrikes, Drongos, Sunbirds and Ground Hornbills.
The camp offers both day and night game drives in this exclusive private concession adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve. Game drives are conducted with a maximum of six passengers per vehicle with trackers on night game drives. Seasonal water activities on Gomoti River and game walks are available depending on local conditions.
