Enjoyed the experience of great guiding, great food and caring staff. Would recommend this camp to all my friends. The chef was very accommodating to dietary needs for both vegetarians and another guest in a gluten free diet.

Gunn's is a six-tent permanent camp situated very close to Chief's Island in the Moremi Game Reserve, in the middle of the Okavango Delta. It's not physically in the park, but most of its activities take place there. (I don't know why TripAdvisor lumps it with Maun instead of Moremi.)

All the basics of this kind of luxury camp were up to the mark. The tents were big and comfortable, with screened-in lounges perfect for a lazy afternoon of reading. The meals were ample and well-prepared. The free bar was open as long as any guests felt like chatting, & our fellow guests were a friendly, chatty bunch. The staff were all accommodating & working hard to make sure it was a great experience.

Activities are water-oriented--mokoro (canoe) rides & game cruises. The sunset cruises were especially pretty. We also took a game walk on Chief's Island (no white or red clothing). Elephants & hippos obviously come through camp--elephant droppings are easy to identify--although we didn't actually see them there. (What we & other guests came to call the invisible hippos woke us, which is great!) There were also baboons in the trees in camp. Mostly, I think the baboons were plotting what they could steal from the open-air showers.

This may sound like heresy, but actually going to the middle of the Okavango Delta--a gorgeous place--was from a wildlife perspective the least interesting part of a spectacular trip that also included the Kalahari and both land & water perspectives on Chobe National Park. My birdwatcher husband did not see a single species here that he did not also see elsewhere. Yes, go to the Delta--but make sure you go to other places in Botswana, too!

I flew to Gunn's camp after a few days at Pom Pom camp, also in the Okavango Delta.
Gunn's is in the heart of the Delta,and it feels that way. I was kept awake by a male elephant right outside my tent--scary at the time. Fodder for great vacation stories, especially when I saw the damage he had done. The food was great and plentiful. I don't know how the staff manages to create delectable meals in what seems to be out in the middle of no where. There is virtually no outside communication. The staff was attentive, friendly, and hard-working. The first night I was at the camp,they treated the guests to traditional songs and dances before dinner. The fellow guests, a mix of famiies, couples, and solo travelers, were a joy to be around. Meal time conversations tended to be lively and informative. The safaris, of course, being in the delta, were by boat, either Mokoro or motor boat I, who have never fished have the opportunity of having my picture taken with my very first catch. How thrilling! Especially while imbibing a gin & tonic. Afternoon boat rides are punctuated by Sundowners (drink time) while watching the golden orb of sun drop below the horizon. For the traveler with a sense of adventure, this is the place to go if you want to see the abundance of flora and fauna in the delta.

This place is in the middle of the Okavango Delta and allows you to go straight out onto the water in one of the most scenic and photogenic places you'll find on earth. The sunsets are something else.
The camp staff are excellent, the food great, the bar area delightful and the 'tents' very luxurious.
What lets the place down is the quality of the wildlife guides who unfortunately, compared to other safaris we have experienced, were not as knowledgable nor forthcoming with information as we would have expected. One did not seem like he really wanted to be there at all.

Room tip: No real differences

Gunns Camp is situated on a picturesque island in the Okavango Delta, overlooking Chiefs Island. The 6 tents have been refurbished and are large and luxurious. They have a separate lounge area and a semi covered outdoor shower and bath. They also have a large private viewing deck overlooking the delta floodplains. The tents are connected to the main camp by a small causeway crossing the wetlands, which are lit up by lanterns in the evening making it look very romantic. There is an elevated bar, lounge and dining room.
Gunns Camp is a ’wet camp’ which meant that all activities are water based or by walking safari. Activities on offer here are mokoro (dug-out canoes) excursions and motor boat safaris as well as game walks on the surrounding palm islands. We saw amazing pageants with leopards, lions and African Wild Dogs, but there were many varieties of antelopes as well as monkeys, baboons, giraffes, buffalo, crocodile, hippos, elephants and warthogs. The birdlife was amazing too. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble for them

Room tip: With only 6 tents you cannot go wrong.
