Rra DinareOverlooking the Gomoti River and the flood plains, Rra Dinare embraces the natural Delta surroundings.
Private concession in the south eastern Delta
Tented safari camp
Mid-rangeOverall good quality. This is a wide category, but you can expect a comfortable stay.
Rra Dinare is in a 272 km2 private concession in the south eastern delta. The camp overlooks the Gomoti river and its seasonal floodplains, this is undeniably a beautiful part of the Okavango Delta.
The camp consists of 8 tents, one of which is designed for families. Each one is set on elevated extended timber decks. The tents are divided into sections, as you enter through the tent flaps, which are usually kept open, you have the lounge area with some comfy seating and a desk, from here you can watch wildlife whilst under cover of shade. Then there are sliding doors which take you into the bedroom section of the tent, with comfy beds and thick duvets, perfect for cosy chilly evenings. There’s nothing quite like listening to the sound of a lion roaring in the distance, when you are all tucked up and drifting off to sleep. Behind this is the en-suite bathroom complete with twin basins, separate WC and a spacious outdoor shower. The décor is modern, classy yet understated – the perfect blend befitting a safari camp.
Elevated walkways link the tents to the main areas, designed for minimal disturbance to nature – so much so that for the last two tents at one end, the path drops to ground level allowing wildlife to pass through unhindered. The main areas are also built on wooden platforms, on multiple levels. Here, under cool thatch you will find the lounge, bar and dining room and to the front, a pool and a fire pit, a popular place to end each day with a nightcap and some convivial chat with the other guests. During the day it is quite simply a lovely place to sit and soak up the views.
Activities at Rra Dinare centre around game drives during the day and also at night. There is a limit of 6 guests per vehicle. On night drives, you will also enjoy the company of a tracker as you search for game via spotlight. Walking safaris are on offer too as long as conditions allow, these are always informative and give a very different perspective on the area with more focus on the smaller things. Mokoro excursions and boat trips are also offered, though these are dependent on water levels. A mokoro trip is the perfect way to explore the waterways, as you glide seemingly effortlessly on the still waters under the power of your expert poler.
This area is great for bird enthusiasts and also for elephant, giraffe, lion and buffalo – the name of the camp Rra Dinare, means Father Buffalo in Setswana.
