Water Camp in the Okavango Delta
Mopiri means ‘Little Island’ in the local Bayei language. The camp is surrounded by crystal clear Delta water on all sides. The camp is situated on the north west of the Okavango Delta, approximately 290kms from Maun, and 100kms from Shakawe.
Mopiri camp has been designed to make the most of the panoramic views of Weboro Lagoon. Long wooden boardwalks winding through the palms adjoin the main areas and the rooms, and give guests the opportunity to explore the area around camp. The tents are light and airy and all have en-suite bathrooms with large rain showers.
