We camped here in Nov 2016.. Great camp sites right on the lagoon, with good ablutions and access to a kitchen facility. Also nice deck to relax on which even campers have access to. Also good activities available at reasonable rates - like boat rides, mekoros etc.

Beautiful, on the lake, a place where you would like to spent more time. We had a beautiful day spent in a mokoro. The lodge is very nice, the tents/rooms are are all around the lake, beautifully sunset. Good food as well.

We stayed for three nights at Guma. The service and attention to detail was fantastic. The activities we did were great fun, we spent hours fishing for tiger fish. The food was huge portions and very tasty. Lunches were delicious! The room itself, a fixed tent was very pleasant. It had a great terrace with two chairs overlooking the Delta,... More

Guma was a fantastic place to stay! The drive in is exhilarating to say the least with deep, hot sand you sure don't want to get stuck, but what fun! The rooms are lovely, with a little deck and some chairs to enjoy the sunrise. The barbell run is amazing to see. We had no luck fishing the tigerfish but... More

Great accommodation in en-suite permanent tent, delicious meals served in the evening, and great breakfast options. Our host Nooky was very accommodating, going out of the way to provide tasty vegetarian options for two vegos in our group. The daily tour activities (we spend two days at the camp) were well planned, and although we didn't see as much game... More

Wanted to go fishing in the Delta and stumbled upon the Guma Lagoon Camp. Reachable by road only in a 4x4 with low pressure tires through very soft sand. The camp sites are isolated from each other with your own bathroom and shower. Very clean. If you want to have diner there, make sure you let them know ahead since... More

The drive in reminds one of all the roads in Botswana 30 yrs ago! The location is great and the lodge design wonderful. Accommodation in riverfront chalets was the best we had along the Okavango river. Staff was efficient, boat was nice. It is all about management! We only had good experiences here and can recommend this lodge to all.

Our trip to Guma was to fish the Barbel Run on the Okavango Delta. From the minute we arrived until we sadly had to leave our stay was one of the best experiences I have ever be fortunate to experience. The greeting was warm, our accommodation simple but immaculate and well set out. The site facilities were excellent including the... More

You absolutely need 4WD to get here and know how to use it. Even with that, visitors being stuck in the sand is a daily occurrence. The track to the West is slightly less challenging.  Corey is the go to person and is very pleasant, thoughtful, and helpful. The mokoro boat ride in the morning is a must do.  The... More
