LUX Hospitality Awards 2016 30 LUX - Hospitality Awards 2016 Most Luxurious Water Camp Experience – Botswana & LUX Wildlife Conservation Award 2016 - Botswana Mopiri Camp, alongside the firm’s parent company, aims to create a circuit of affordable and accessible camps in Botswana, whilst still offering a high level of service and accommodation. The Roots & Journeys team was formed through a joint love and passion for the African bush, from the owners meeting on a guide-training course, through to the guides and staff growing up in the area. Roots & Journeys strives to offer the highest level of service and accommodation at affordable rates. As such the Mopiri team are provided with constant training to ensure that the standard of service is maintained, and that people are growing in to new positions within the company. Guests arrive at Mopiri on board a double storey barge to the sounds and smiling faces of the Mopiri choir. A refreshing drink and cooling towel is on hand, before having a quick chat with one of the managers about all the activities on offer during the stay. Our key is flexibility. Guests can choose what activities they would like to do as and when, guided by the Managers and Guides expert knowledge of the area. Moving forward, we are keen to create the circuit of affordable and accessible lodges in Botswana. Mopiri will offer the water camp experience and the next two camps will offer game rich safaris, and the chance to explore the Kalahari, providing visitors with a chance to experience the very best that the region has to offer. These developments are designed to meet the changing needs of our clients. We have noticed that there is an increase in the self-drive market doing lodge-to-lodge itineraries, which is why we are creating an accessible circuit of lodges. All of our lodges will be accessible by road and by air. Most Luxurious Water Camp Experience – Botswana & LUX Wildlife Conservation Award 2016 - Botswana Mopiri operating under the umbrella firm Roots & Journeys, offers a true Okavango Delta water camp experience. We spoke with Anna Butterfield about the camp and the unique experience it offers.
