overview

Sheltered by ancient ebony trees and set on the banks of the lush Xakanaxa (pronounced ‘ka-ka-na-ka’) lagoon in the pristine wetland of the Okavango Delta, Camp Moremi provides a true ‘get away from it all’ safari experience. With only 11 East African-style safari tents and located in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve, Camp Moremi is ideal for those keen on ‘unplugging’ from modern communications but who still want some 21st century creature comforts.

One of the best ways to explore the Delta is via a mokoro, which is based on a traditional dugout canoe. ‘Water safaris’ allow you to go in search of hippo and water fowl, and are a tranquil way of understanding this vast and fragile ecosystem. Back at Camp Moremi, tuck into their famous homemade bread at lunch and then take to your viewing deck with a book and binoculars – or to your king-sized bed for a lazy siesta.

With a beautiful setting, comfortable accommodation and attentive staff, Camp Moremi is an excellent introduction into the lifeblood of Botswana.

Facilities

Artfully constructed from thatch and wood, the elevated Moremi Tree Lodge is the focal point of the camp and houses the main lounge, a wildlife reference library, dining area and cocktail bar, all shaded by giant ebony trees with a deck overlooking the lagoon. A wooden walkway leads to the secluded pool area, perfect for a refreshing swim in the afternoons between game drives.

    Bar

Dining

The delicious early breakfast and mid-morning brunch buffets are served in the thatched boma area. A selection of fresh salads and seasonal fruits are complimented by a mouth-watering array of hot and cold dishes that change daily. Game drive hampers include snacks to be enjoyed in the wilds, and a late-afternoon high tea features a tempting choice of sweet and savoury delicacies. Candlelit dinners are served in the cosy atmosphere of the Moremi Tree Lodge, where you are serenaded by the grunts of hippos and the chirping reed frogs in the lagoon below. 

Standard Tent

Camp Moremi accommodates a maximum of 22 guests in East African-style safari tents, which are individually set on raised teak platforms with a private verandah.
The tents are simply yet elegantly furnished with African teak furniture and colourful woven rugs. Large gauze windows allow cooling breezes in but keep insects out, and an electric fan keeps the air fresh and cool in the evenings.

The en suite bathroom adjacent to the tents feature double vanities, a flush toilet, signature amenities and a blissful hot shower.

Traveller Reviews

  • We had some of the best animal viewing of the trip here and the Camps at Moremi, Savute and Elephant Valley were able to offer a much more personal level of service as they only small camps. Nothing seemed to be too difficult for them and as they said at Moremi, in greeting new arivals in the evening "You are with family now, come in, sit down and take off your shoes". In looking back at this part of the trip the only change we would make if we were organizing it now would be to sacrifice the smaller Elephant Valley lodge for the larger camp that is inside Chobe National Park as we had a half hour drive each way just to get into the park.

  • We all actually enjoyed Moremi Camp more as it was a real camp, we were under canvas and the staff were fantastic + there were less people/tourists. Our driver at Moremi really worked hard for us. If I had my choice again I would have definitely stayed at Moremi but possibly found a similar camp in Chobe.

  • A short flight then into the Okavango Delta to a further breathtaking Camp Moremi (and their honeymoon suite – or should I say tree?!). It was more relaxed here than Chobe with less hours in the car and not as much wildlife to see due to the land being very wet and boggy, so the only downside was the number of hours sat in the vehicle not seeing hardly any animals. We had a very knowledgeable guide however who did his best to find the animals and in the evenings, it was so wonderful to be sung to by the staff before supper! What we did find most impressive was the food at these places – lots of choice and all delicious. Not as much game on the menu as we had imagined though.

  • Lovely camp. Fantastic staff. There's certainly a sense of community here and this is the place we felt most at home and we were glad we got to spend three days here. Terrific food. Great staff choir. Very comfortable tent, it's certainly not camping as I've known it in the past. I guess this is what they call 'glamping'!

  • Moremi Camp in the Okavango was a nice change and a more relaxed pace - we loved the cruises on the waterways each day. I have to say the staff were fantastic and looked after our two children incredibly well - the afternoon soccer games were fun!

  • Camp Moremi is a good choice for the three nights. We were fortunate that we were able to combine both land and water activities here. We loved learning about all the birds that we saw. It's an amazing place to see a huge variety of things - mammals, birds, trees, flowers, etc. We saw the first of two encounters with wild dogs here (they had just taken down a big male impala and we were there about 10 minutes after that). We also got to see a Civet on the way to dinner one night, and had a hippo next to the hut as we were getting ready for bed. Deb heard it first. But a flashlight shining in its face proved it was a lot closer than one would have expected!! Great place for sundowners on the lagoon. So, lots of unique things here… great variety.

  • Our time at Camp Moremi was fantastic and couldn't give high enough praise for the camp. The staff were ever so friendly and went out of their way to be helpful and provide great service. We had the same safari guide for each outing so was able to build up a rapport with the guide. We didn't see as much on our trips as Chobe but the trips were much more personal.

  • Thank you for your email, I had intended to thank you for your help and let you know that our "Wild African Adventures" exceeded all our expectations. I loved Camp Moremi, the 3 nights were perfect, the Managers and staff excellent as was the catering and the wonderful mix of people from all over the world but for me most of all was the animals....fantastic though we did not see any Cheeta or Leopards, there had been a lot of rain.

  • I absolutely loved the Okavango Delta as the three camps each offered a totally different experience, and when we arrived at Moremi airstrip, there was a hippo right at the end of the runway to welcome us. The guides and staff in general made us most welcome at all of the Desert & Delta Safaris, and the meals were amazing.

"Camp Moremi is a lovely, 4-star lodge that will offer you an affordable and comfortable stay with a great experience of the Moremi Game Reserve. The staff are one of the highlights at the lodge, especially when they sing before dinner. I thoroughly enjoyed the sunset cruise on the lagoon as well as sundowners on the deck overlooking the water."
