Mopiri sits on the western bank of the vast and idyllic Weboro Lagoon, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Its tranquil island surrounds offer some incredible nature experiences; depending on the time of year, guests may spot hippopotamus, elephants and sitatungas (rare swamp-dwelling antelopes). Accommodation is in seven luxury rooms and three family suites, all generously spaced out and connected to the main guest area by long, winding boardwalks. The rooms are spacious and airy, with king-size beds and large private decks. Private bathrooms are connected to the bedrooms by a short corridor, offering views across the lagoon.
Mopiri – which means ‘little island’ in the local Bayei language – is surrounded by crystal-clear delta water on all sides, so activities here focus on the water. Guests can take boat trips through winding channels of papyrus, and glide serenely through the shallower waters in a mokoro (dug-out canoe). A swimming pool offers views over the flood plain, and in the centre of the island, in the boma, guests can enjoy cultural evenings filled with Mopiri song and traditional local dishes served by friendly staff.
