From the moment that we were met by our guide Noah at the landing strip, and were sung into camp by the 'Delta Choir', we sensed that Okuti would be a great place to stay and we weren't disappointed. Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and the whole team works together so well - we think that Bujos must be a great manager.
The camp is beautifully appointed and maintained and the food was excellent, whether served in the dining room or outside under the shade of the huge trees.
Our game drives were amazing - the guides communicate really well to make sure that as many guests as possible see the big sights, but allow plenty of time for each viewing. We were lucky enough to have several sightings of leopards (including one visiting the camp briefly in the early morning...) and we even saw a serval (I still can't quite believe that) as well as fabulous birds (including the endangered Ground Hornbill), snake eagles, fish eagles, and other animals - elephants dust bathing, red lechwe sparkling through the water, it was all amazing.
We loved the choir, singing and dancing some of their traditional stories, and dancing us into dinner, the boma (campfire), the stargazing, the hippos grunting at night.
Okuti was the highlight of an altogether wonderful trip to Africa, thank you!More
