Boarders can spend their recreation hours in a number of different ways. There is an all-weather sports court in the centre of the school in addition to the sports fields.

Boarders may use the school Computer Room, and the Internet. Use of the social networking is not permitted, although emails may be sent.

Television programmes may be watched, and films and documentaries are also shown. Table tennis, snooker, and board games are currently being set up in a Recreation Room.

A large swimming pool is available to students at specified times when a staff member is present. In addition the boarders may relax in the designated areas of the tranquil Okavango International School grounds.
