Peeking out from under a lush green woodland canopy sits Camp Moremi, in the Xakanaxa area of Moremi Game Reserve. This luxurious but down to earth and friendly lodge has a fantastic team delivering an excellent safari experience. This is prime game viewing area and Camp Moremi is the perfect place from which to exploring this wonderful corner of the Okavango. Game drives as well as boating is offered from this beautiful lodge.
At the point where the life-giving waters of the Okavango Delta meet the vast plains of the Kalahari Desert, Mother Nature has created a sanctuary of Mopane forests, open grasslands, seasonal floodplains and riverine habitats, resulting in one of the most magnificent and welcoming animal environments in all of Africa. Camp Moremi offers a perfect base for exploring this prime game viewing area.
Shaded from the African sun by a forest of ancient ebony trees, Camp Moremi is an elegant thatch and timber lodge consisting of an elevated main lounge, wildlife reference library, dining room and cocktail bar. Facilities at Camp Moremi include a secluded swimming pool and sundeck, an elevated viewing platform with a breathtaking panorama of Xakanaxa Lagoon, and a thatched boma where guests can enjoy brunch or afternoon tea.
There are 12 contemporary styled thatch tented rooms – each set on raised platforms. The rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable with thoughtful details throughout. Each room has a private deck for relaxing during the siesta hour.
Camp Moremi offers a broad range of safari activities on both land and water. For many guests, the highlight of their stay comes during the morning and afternoon game drives. Conducted in open 4×4 safari vehicles, the exhilarating game drives provide the chance to track wildlife in the beautiful surroundings of Moremi Game Reserve, a protected area renowned for frequent sightings of lion, leopard and cheetah. African Wild Dog sightings are also regularly reported, an endangered species whose numbers are rapidly dwindling in other areas.
Water activities involve the exploration of the water lily-ringed Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding Okavango Delta channels by motorboat. The birdlife – which ranges from water birds to shy forest dwellers – is prolific and varied, and each boat trip affords guests exceptional bird-watching opportunities. Other sightings include hippos enjoying the clear, cool water, and the chance to watch big game making their way through the reeds to drink or bathe at the water’s edge.
