Rra Dinare

Gomoti Plains, Okavango Delta

Rra Dinare

Rra Dinare, meaning ‘father buffalo’ in Setswana, is located on a private concession of the Okavango Delta, just next door to Moremi Game Reserve.

Overlooking the Gomoti River and its flood plains, Rra Dinare Lodge is in a great location for viewing the grazing game. Being on a private concession means it is also possible to do night game drives and off-road drives, which are not possible at lodges located within the boundaries of the national park. It should be noted, however, that the low water levels in the area mean that water-based activities are limited to only a few months per year.

The main area of the lodge is open to the sides, so you can always see what’s going on! There is a bar and lounge where you can relax and take in the views, and a dining area where meals are served. Leading down from the bar there is a small pool and sun loungers, and another deck with boma overlooking the floodplains.


Rra Dinare has just 8 tents, including a 2-bedroom family tent. The canvas tents are comfortably furnished and equipped with ceiling fans.

Each tent has a shady front porch with seating, and a spacious deck where you can relax and enjoy the views. En suite facilities include twin vanity, dressing area and outdoor shower.
