Gunn's Bush Camp
Gunn's Bush Camp, Gunn's Concession, Botswana
Deep in the delta is where the clear water rises out of the desert and gives way to a spectacle of lush diversity: papyrus islands, secret channels and winding waterways. Gunn's Camp, situated on the Boro River, overlooking the legendary Chief's Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, is set under leafy palms, blending naturally with its unique environment to offer comfort balanced by a rustic simplicity. Gunn's Camp accommodation is in seven luxury meru tents with en suite bathrooms, colourful fabrics and teak furniture. The main lodge is elevated to make the most of the spectacular views and includes a lounge, dining area, small library with reference books, and small swimming pool.
During your stay at Gunn's, you will enjoy guided activities such as a mokoro trips and boat safaris (water levels permitting) along the many nearby channels and lagoons. You will also enjoy game and bird walks on the islands. Chief's Island offers one of the largest populations of African wildlife in the delta area, and sightings may include lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile and a variety of plains game from zebra to red lechwe. Gunn's Camp is also a birder's paradise, with over 240 species noted including the rare Pel's fishing owl and endangered wattled crane. In the evenings as you relax in the main lodge, reflections of treasure memories are cast in the glow of a spectacular sunset.
