We stayed in the accommodation for one night while passing through Maun. It had great themed decor and a great outdoor shower. Great bar and food with a small pool nearby. The food did take a while but once it arrived, it was great. We had a great time at Sitatunga!

We stayed in one of the chalets and went on an Okavango Delta Tour. Everything was well organized, such an amazing tour. The chalets are cozy, with coffee & tea and a great outdoor shower. The food at Sitatunga Camp is great. We loved our stay here!! Thanks Gerald :)

We camped for two days at Sitatunga. Staff are very friendly. Ablution facilities are very basic - but neat and you have what you need. Wifi is free and there is a good restaurant and bar as well as a swimming pool and little curio shop. Close to nature and a beautiful river. Overall it is a great place!

Everything was clean and fresh. The food was really yummy and the bar had a great atmosphere. We also went on a safari...

We booked campsites but on arrival decided to upgrade to chalets. Very comfortable chalets with 2 beds, coffee station, own bathroom with open air shower. The restaurant serves the best ribs and pizza as well as breakfast. We booked a scenic flight over the Delta with them and Christiaan was very helpful in this regard. Free WiFi at the restaurant....

Quite disappointing rooms in a delightful setting. Lovely bar area with reasonable wifi, and two nice pools. The chalets was very primitive and boring. Kettle for coffee but that was it. Bare walls and outdoor shower and toilet in a very dull setting. The rooms are to be frank, off putting and resemble a prison cell. No decoration and concrete...

Thank you for you review. We are sorry that you found our rooms to be boring, also that we are on the wrong side of town.. We agree that this type of accommodation might not be for everyone but we do very well with our target market. Most people find the chalets to be quaint but adequate. Hope you visit...

We were in a camp site and liked very much the bar. Internet was for free and the staff member Kecki (not sure about the name) was very helpful and proactive. One point less for the ablution blocks, escpecially the one in the back of the camp sites.

The campsite was good, but electricity seems to only come on at 18:00 until morning. The second time we camped, on our way home, during my daughter's shower the water suddenly went off. Apparently they were working on a water problem and didn't bother to tell anyone not to shower during that time! Secondary showers (not the main complex) were...

This camp and restaurant is just outside of Maun. The restaurant is in a beautiful spot with large trees and a really good play area for the children. Our kids had a fabulous time! The food was however quite average which is very unfortunate. Nice family outing though.
