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...

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...

My girlfriend and I stayed two nights in Guma Lagoon in July 2016. We recommend!

The hotel is very clean, rooms are big and facing the lake! we could watch the sun rise from our bed. Also, we could fish...

Guma Lagoon is an absolute little gem, located on the shores of the Okavango Panhandle, not far from the Okanvango Delta. Its friendly owners made us feel at home right away after we had managed the quite adventurous 4x4 track (including water passages and very soft sand) that leads to the lodge from the little village of Etsha 13. The...

I had spent so much time doing research to find a decent priced camp that I was almost suspicious when I came across Guma Lagoon! It is wonderful to find a camp where one does not feel that it is all about the money and the luxury, attracting tourists with a fat wallet. Beverly and Guy are genuinely pleased to...

We stayed two nights as part of a safari group, and found the place very warm, welcoming and interesting. There is a whole rich history here, which the owners and staff are happy to explain. We took a canoe ride in the delta, fished for tiger fish, and stayed in lovely accommodation. Morning saw us looking out over the water...

What a fantastic surprise to find this well run, well maintained camp in the middle of nowhere. The setting is just absolutely stunning. The deck looking out over the lagoon is a perfect place for a sundowner or a coffee. There are seven camp sites, each with it's own private ablution, which is basic, but clean and functional. There is...
