Wilderness Qorokwe, Okavango Delta, Botswana

The exclusive Qorokwe Private Wilderness Area encompasses over 26 180-hectares (over 64 692-acres) in a diverse habitat area of the south-eastern Okavango, bordering the renowned Moremi Game Reserve. The name Qorokwe means 'the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water' evoking the high-density game area in which this camp is situated. It owes its productivity to a mix of habitat types that lie between its western and eastern borders: the Santantadibe and Gomoti Channels respectively.

The Qorokwe Private Wilderness Area comprises various biomes, from scattered acacia woodland with herds of giraffe, zebra and various plains game – to pristine floodplains being home to curious red lechwe, and mud-encrusted buffalo bulls; whence the name Qorokwe is derived: "The place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water". Besides the resident lion pride, elephants are a feature of this classic Okavango Delta setting.

Wilderness Qorokwe combines a compelling contemporary style with a classic Okavango Delta setting. Its nine elegant tents (including one very spacious family unit with a private plunge pool) invite guests to move easily from the chic interiors to the natural airy exterior. The whole camp, including the magnificent main area, are well shaded and catch the prevailing breeze whilst overlooking a quintessential Delta lagoon.

The Qorokwe Concession is defined by the Gomoti Channel in the east, while a large part of it lies across the Santantadibe River to the west. The safari traversing area comprises typical Okavango Delta habitats: seasonal palm-dotted floodplains, wooded islands, tranquil waterways, and dry woodland areas. This variety of habitats, plus the fact that the Qorokwe Concession has permanent water all year round, allows for a unique diversity of wildlife and outstanding game viewing during every season.
