Location:

Mopiri means ‘Little Island’ in the local Bayei language. The camp is surrounded by crystal clear Okavango Delta water on all sides. The camp sits on a three-kilometre lagoon perfect for leisurely sunset cruises.

Spacious tents set on the banks of Weboro Lagoon offer panoramic views from their private decks. Long winding boardwalks between the main area and the tents offer privacy, and the opportunity for guests to stretch their legs. The tents are light and airy and have en-suite bathrooms with large rain showers. The bathrooms are adjoined to the rooms by a short corridor, making the most of the view over the lagoon.
