Free wi-fi at a decent speed, nice bar and decent facilities. It all adds up to an overlanders ideal camp site ! The service was very good and everyone in the group liked this place. So if you are camping it's worth a go !

We were delighted the manager met us on arrival and showed us to the modest-size air-conditioned chalets, close to the swimming pool. After a long drive on a very hot 40C day this was exactly what we needed! The bar/dining area staff were very nice, and the pizzas the manager recommended were quite excellent. Wifi was good and overall very...

A really good place. Nicely laid out and our tents were close to the toilets / showers, pool and bar. There is also accommodation separate from the camp. They have WiFi. The manager owner met us on our arrival and the bar staff were really friendly.

The campsite is realy nice and have a good pub and restaurant and a helpfull staff, but during our stay we visited two other campaite in the area and both of them were cheaper, cleaner and more centeral. For me sitatunga is not a bad choice at all but next time it wont be my first choice as well.

Sitatunga is not safe. Our luggage was stolen. We spent one night at Sitatunga and then we flew to the Okavanga Delta for two days. Our tour company, Nomad, instructed us to leave almost all our goods in the lockers in their truck at the Sitatunga/ Delta Rains camp, even though our luggage would have been under the weight limit...

Hello. it is agreed that the goods were stolen on the property of Sitatunga. However it was not an inside job. We did extensive investigations with the Police and CID (Central Intelligence Dept) and came to the conclusion that it was not an employee. I would also like to make it clear that the truck was left unattended by tour...

Large campsites each with its own electricity and braai. Nice walk down to the river, quieter than other spots. Very helpful staff and nice bar. Ablutions are shared and clean. Lots over over landing groups can be a bit noisy but a good stop off, for a decent price.

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!
