Camp Moremi

q

Camp Moremi is situated on the beautiful Xakabanaxa Lagoon on the eastern edge of the permanent Okavango Delta, within the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Here, where the life-giving waters of the Okavango meet up with the vast Kalahari, ancient Mopane forests, open grassland, seasonal floodplains and riverine habitats have formed, creating one of the most magnificent and welcoming animal sanctuaries in all of Africa.

Shaded by giant ebony trees, the magnificent Moremi tree lodge is an elegant elevated thatch and timber structure, consisting of a main lounge, wildlife reference library, dining room and cocktail bar.

Other facilities include a secluded swimming pool with sun deck, thatched boma and elevated viewing hide with unsurpassed views of the Xakabanxa Lagoon. Camp Moremi accommodates only 22 guests in East African-style safari tents, individually situated on raised teak platforms with private adjacent facilities and viewing decks.

Activities center around tracking big game on morning and afternoon game drives by open 4×4 safari vehicle in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, renowned for frequent sightings of lion, leopard and cheetah, as well as wild dog, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling in other areas.

Exploring the Xabanaxa Lagoon and surrounding Okavango channels by motorboat, affords guests exceptional bird-watching opportunities, as birdlife is prolific and varied, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers.
