Wilderness Safaris has announced the opening of its new Classic Camp, Qorokwe, situated in the private, wildlife-rich Qorokwe Concession and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
Meaning “the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water“, Qorokwe comprises nine elegant tented suites, all situated along the banks of a beautiful lagoon.
An example of authentic, responsible luxury, the camp was built using innovative techniques and operates on 100% solar power, keeping as light an eco-footprint as possible in one of the Delta’s untouched wilderness areas.
Owing to its location on the border of Moremi Game Reserve and its diverse habitat types, Qorokwe offers an abundance of wildlife in a picturesque landscape.
Game drives, walks, boating and mokoro trips offer exceptional opportunities to view and photography the wide variety of life in the region. Guests at Qorokwe can expect to see lions, spotted hyaena, leopards, wild dogs, cheetahs, elephants and buffalo, as well as the myriad birds attracted to such pristine surrounds.
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, resulting in a rich mix of bleached timbers, darker stains and accents of rust and burnt orange.
The materials chosen to build Qorokwe include steel frames with infill panels to insulate against heat and cold, canvas and timber decks. Detailed timber ceilings are perforated with light to mimic the experience of being beneath the trees at the side of the lagoon, so that the entire camp experience blends in with its beautiful natural surroundings.
