Camp Moremi – Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana
Camp Moremi offers a classic African Safari experience in Botswana’s world-renowned Moremi Game reserve. Situated on the edge of the Xakanaxa Lagoon, an area well known for spectacular game-viewing opportunities.
Camp Moremi is an ideal inclusion in any Botswana safari holiday.
Camp Moremi peers out beneath giant ebony trees in this unparalleled reserve, which aids in keeping the tents and main areas cool during the searing temperatures. 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 and a thatched boma, where brunch & high tea is served. The elevated viewing hide has unsurpassed views of the Xakanaxa Lagoon, where one can sit back, relax and simply enjoy this spectacular sight.
Camp Moremi accommodates only 22 guests in East African-style safari tents. Each tent is individually situated on raised teak platforms with private adjacent facilities & viewing decks.
Track 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 & cheetah, as well as wild dog, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling in other areas. Other game seen in the area are hyena, hippo and the full range of antelope, large and small, including the red lechwe.
Alternatively, explore the Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding Okavango channels by motorboat, affording guests exceptional bird-watching opportunities, as birdlife is prolific and varied, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers. Before returning to the lodge on your afternoon activity, enjoy sundowners with views of Botswana’s breathtaking sunsets.
Game viewing is at its best in the dry season between July and October and for the keen ornithologist birding can be very rewarding, especially between November to April.
The winter months of May to August can be very cold at night, but pleasantly warm, under clear blue skies, during the day.
From October until the first rains fall from late November to early December, the weather can be tremendously hot, during both day and night times.
