Mma Dinare Camp Welcomes its First Guests

Mma Dinare Camp joins the Under One Botswana Sky family in the Okavango Delta.

Having opened its doors in June, the modern, luxurious and eco-friendly Mma Dinare Camp has already welcomed its first guests. Meaning ‘Mother Buffalo’ in Setswana, Mma Dinare is the perfect accompaniment to Rra Dinare Camp or ‘Father Buffalo’.

Location

Mma Dinare is located in a private concession opposite the game-rich Moremi Game Reserve, overlooking the Gomoti River and surrounding floodplains which becomes a lush animal habitat during seasonal floods.

Raised communal areas, like the firepit, ensure fantastic views of the landscape and wildlife

Raised decks mean views of the Okavango Delta can be enjoyed from the indoor dining room and lounge. Guests don’t always have to go far to encounter wildlife as visits from plains game can be expected.

In fact, a guest visiting Mma Dinare in August was thrilled to report on TripAdvisor that they had viewed “at least 40 elephants at lunchtime right by the lodge”.

Navigate the waters of the Okavango Delta with your guide on a mokoro

Taking a water safari on the Gomoti River in a dug-out canoe or mokoro is an experience unique to Botswana. Both the mokoro and walking safaris are dependent on the water levels of the floodplains.

Getting to Mma Dinare

Guests will get to Maun, from where a small charter flight will be organised to carry guests 20 minutes across the Delta to the airstrip shared by the Dinare camps. The 45-minute game drive from the airstrip to the camps will orient travellers with the surrounding environment.

Guest review

Paul Changuion, a recent guest at Mma Dinare Camp, had an excellent time with Under One Botswana Sky:

“Game drives and mokoro trips here are led by knowledgeable guides who really go out of their way to find you great sightings. The lodge is elevated above ground level, which allows for stunning views of the floodplain. Since the rooms are connected to the main lodge by walkways, you won’t have to feel concerned about wildlife entering the lodge.”

The Dinare concession safari is the perfect addition to Under One Botswana Sky’s collection. It offers Pom Pom camp on Pom Pom Island as well as Moremi Crossing and Gunn’s Camp, found on the Bora River and overlooking Chief’s Island.
