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 one family tent) 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.
‘Water safaris’ by boat allow you to go in search of hippo, elephants and water fowl, and are an excellent way of understanding this vast and fragile ecosystem (the water here is too deep to use mekoro). 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.
