Great Plains unveils its Sitatunga Private Island Suite

The Sitatunga Private Island Suite will be the centerpiece when ecotourism company Great Plains opens its Sitatunga Private Island Camp in Botswana’s Okavango Delta on July 15.

The two-bedroom Sitatunga Private Island Suite is built on a raised private deck and can accommodate up to four adults, or two adults and up to three children, offering a total footprint of approximately 6,534 square feet. The camp, which will also include two tented rooms, is the latest addition to Great Plains’ water-based Reserve-Collection Safari Camps.

Great Plains says the Sitatunga Private Island Camp will provide guests with an authentic Robinson Crusoe experience. Dereck Joubert, CEO of Great Plains Conservation, commented on the opening, saying, “Sitatunga Private Island Camp is an extraordinary place. It is a private island and is one of the few locations where one can still see sitatunga, the rare aquatic antelope, from camp and by boat, which is the main activity here in addition to walking. It is deep Okavango Delta and, as such, is rich in birding. Head out on a boat to view elephants, crocodiles and hippos all day, every day.”

Guests at the Sitatunga camp will have the opportunity to explore the Okavango Delta’s permanent channels by mekoro (canoe), stretch their legs on guided morning walks, do some fishing or take part in photographic safaris. For those guests keen to keep up with their fitness regimen, the Sitatunga Private Island Suite offers yoga mats as well as light weight-training equipment, and in-room massages are available upon request. A wine cellar and boutique are also available to guests within the camp.

Sitatunga Private Island Camp will house eight people in total. Children must be age 6 or older. All guests will have complimentary use of a professional camera and lens set.
