As you might expect from the name of the lodge, Camp Moremi has an enviable location in the Moremi Game Reserve overlooking the beautiful, palmed fringes of Xakanaxa (Ka-ka-na-ka) Lagoon.
Expect to see a wealth of birdlife in these rich waterways as well as in the mature leadwood and jackalberry trees that shade the bulk of the lodge. During our last visit to the lodge, we enjoyed some fantastic sightings of, normally skittish, green pigeons in the trees around the raised viewing deck/cum bar. As well as this when we arrived, we had just missed wild dogs passing through camp pursuing an impala, such is the density of wildlife in this prime area of the Moremi Game Reserve, such events are not that uncommon.
The lodge was completely rebuilt in 2018 and it looks fantastic, the 12-modern safari ‘tents’ can be found along pleasing wooden walkways that wind between the riverine landscape and the central areas.
Activities focus on twice daily boat cruises and game drives to explore the Moremi Game Reserve, because of the restrictions in this park, no off-roading, walking or night activities are allowed. This is certainly one of the best lodges in the area, along with Camp Moremi’s sister camp Camp Xakanaxa and Okuti, which is located a little further along the same waterway. Because of the number of lodges in the area, at key sightings there can sometimes be several other vehicles.
Camp Moremi isn't included exclusively in any of our example itineraries yet but as everything we do is tailor-made we can include this as part of your Botswana safari and please see below for a number of other trip ideas.
