Qorokwe Camp opens next to Botswana game reserve in Okavango Delta

A luxury tented hotel has opened in a wildlife-rich region of Botswana bordering the Moremi Game Reserve.

The private 26,000-hectare Qorokwe Concession, from which the camp takes its name, is set in the Okavango Delta.

Meaning 'the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water', Qorokwe is made up of nine elegant tented suites.

One is a spacious family unit with its own splash pool, as well as a dining area, lounge, library, bar and infinity swimming pool, all situated along the banks of a beautiful lagoon.

According to lead architect, Joy Brasler, and interior designer, Michelle Throssell, the design inspiration for Qorokwe came from the natural setting of the Botswana landscape.

Throssell said: "By introducing a combination of organic shapes and textural diversity from live-edged timber to steel and canvas, we have created a warm, enveloping space providing comfort and luxury in an understated way.

The camp is described as an example of "authentic, responsible luxury", built using innovative techniques and operating on 100% solar power.

The surrounding area is full of diverse habitat types – from scattered acacia and mopane woodlands, open seasonal and permanent floodplains, Qorokwe offers an abundance of wildlife.
