Hidden away on the North-West side of the Okavango Delta, Mopiri offers its guests the perfect water camp experience.
The camp is situated approximately 290 km from Maun, and 118 km from Shakawe.
Seven spacious en-suite tents and 3 family room 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 and the opportunity to stretch their legs and explore the island.
The tents are light and airy and have seperate bathrooms with large rain showers, twin sinks and WC. The bathrooms are adjoined to the rooms by a short corridor making the most of the view over the lagoon.
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.
Mopiri offers a huge variety of activities to suit all:
• Short mokoro trips around the surrounding islands of camp (ideal for guests that arrive late in camp or want a short relaxing activity).

• Fishing Trips (Bream, Tiger Fish, African Pike, Barbel). Keen fisherman are advised to bring their own kit, however basic gear will be available at the camp.
