Het Moremi Game Reserve ligt in het oostelijke deel van de Okavango Delta en kenmerkt zich door dichte begroeiing van acacia’s. Het wild in Moremi is zeer gevarieerd en talrijk. In dit ca. 3.000 km² grote gebied, variërend van savannelandschap en moerassige gebieden tot dichte wouden, komen onder meer vele antilopensoorten, giraffen, buffels, zebra’s en olifanten voor, maar ook leeuwen, luipaarden, hyena’s, cheeta’s en de bedreigde wild dogs.
Het grootste gedeelte is bebost land, maar het oostelijke en noordelijke gedeelte zijn een combinatie van harde grond, kreekjes, papyrus en bosland.
Camp Moremi is set in the Moremi Game Reserve, in what is known as Xakanaxa (pronounced ta-ka-na-ka), amidst lush greenery and along the swamps of the Okavango Delta, though it is more a land based camp than water. Run by the Deserts & Deltas team, this is one of three camps in the same area of this Game Reserve. The camp itself isnâ€™t very large, with only 12 tents, which makes it very intimate and exclusive. There is a large Boma Mess Area, where you have all your meals except dinner, which is had in the dining room in the main lounge area which has a bar, sofas and a library of sorts. The lounge is also where you will find the only form of technology â€“ a laptop with an internet connection, where you can catch up with your mail. There is no network at all in this region of Botswana, and so your phone will make a very useful alarm clock and camera for a couple of days! The camp does have a small swimming pool, with some nice sun loungers which are lovely to sit around in the afternoon in between activities. The grounds are large enough to have a bit of an amble in, but you do have to watch out for game that also chooses to amble across the lawn. Albert the Camp Manager has this incredible story of a lion that was sauntering through the camp one time! The rooms are actual canvas tents raised on a wooden platform. There is a foyer which separates the main room from the bathroom, and this can be useful for leaving your dirty shoes and wet umbrellas without ruining the room. The actual room is not basic but also not super luxurious. It is somewhere in between rustic and semi luxurious, but most importantly, It is comfortable and clean. The room is fully carpeted which makes it cosy, and there is a safe in a cupboard, a dressing table and the bed. The bathroom has a shower, single sink and WC, and has netted windows which let tiny bugs in at night, so in the morning your sink and shower are filled with dead bugs. They didnâ€™t bother me so much â€“ you are in the bush after all, but then again, bugs arenâ€™t everyoneâ€™s cup of tea. I would say that the Camp is in need of refurbishment, because it is looking a bit weather worn. There is no WiFi, and electricity is generated using a generator, which means that it is switched off after the last guest goes to bed, and then you rely on battery operated lamps and lighting. The lighting in the tent is far from adequate to do anything more than change, and sleep, which I suppose is all you will use the tent for in the evening. In the daytime it is comfortable enough, with a large deck overlooking a shaded, green woody area that is frequented by Bushbuck, and is a lovely place to sit and read. There is a fan in the room, which is necessary because of the incessant afternoon heat when it isnâ€™t raining! In terms of activities: the Camp offers game drives in shared land cruisers, or a boat ride along the channel of the Delta it is in, also in a shared boat but depending on how full the Camp is, you can get a private car or boat. Over our visit we had two guides â€“ Lets and Ollie, both of whom were excellent and tried their best to show us everything we had wanted to see. Lets took us on the game drives, whilst Ollie is a naturalist and took us on our boat cruise, pointing out the smallest animals like the Painted Reed Frog which we would have missed completely! He also made me an Okavango Delta Necklace from the beautiful lillies. I wouldnâ€™t say that December/January is the best time to see game because it is the wet season, and food and water is a plenty so the animals are scattered all over the park. However, over the course of the three days we were there we did see everything except cheetahs, so all in all it was a very successful trip. The days are structured to give you maximum time within the park to spot all you want to. You start your morning with a 5:00 am wake up call, and head to the Boma Area for a light continental breakfast before you depart for your game drive at 6:00 am. The game drives last till about 11:00 am, with a stop for some tea, coffee and cookies in between. You then come back to Camp for a full brunch which has hot eggs made to order, as well as a couple of other hot dishes and a great selection of salads. Wine and drinks are aplenty and you can eat and drink as much as you want. After brunch, you pretty much do as you please until 3:00 pm when you will congregate at the Boma again for a High Tea before departing on another activity â€“ either a game drive or a boat ride, usually something your guide will have chosen for you to give you a balanced experience of the area. You have sundowners on this activity, and your guide will have asked you what your preferred drink is at check in, and this is usually set up in a scenic spot and served with some canapes, before you head back to Camp in time to freshen up for dinner. There are pre-dinner drinks at 7:30 pm served with some canapes, and then Albert or Lydia will mix and match the guests around so that you have a different set of people to dine with every night. I will go so far as to say that What the camp lacks in luxury it makes up in friendliness and camaraderie. I must say I really liked the idea of teaming up with people, it makes for a less lonely experience and broadens the mind, as well as lurks you out of your comfort zone and you do make some lovely friends from your trip out here! I also love the fact that you eat with your guides and the Management, because it makes for a very holistic experience. However, if communal dining isnâ€™t your thing, you can request to be set up at a private table. Dinner is a three course affair that always starts off with some singing and an introduction of the team that has prepared your meal, and is usually a buffet, depending on the season. There is a decent variety of food and usually there will be one or two local specialities, which make for a good culinary experience. The Camp is made extra special by the team that runs it. Albert the Camp Manager is one of the friendliest people I have met, and I could easily have spent all my free time listening to his stories. Albert â€“ you really should consider writing a book! I wish I had a tape recorder to record all his side splitting stories because they really are that good, and Albert has a knack for story telling which makes them all that more exciting! The rest of the Managers: Lydia, Taz and Kopane (Kops) are also super friendly and will go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have all that you need to make your stay comfortable. What impressed me the most about the Camps in Botswana are how hands on the Managers are. We had two Managers see us off and welcome us back every time that we left or returned to the Camp after our activities, with hot towels and warm greetings, which I found so amazing because sadly in a lot of establishments you would be lucky if the Manager even showed up for a few minutes to say hello! This for me, over everything else that the Camp has to offer is what made the trip so so special. The connections and friends that we made and the memories of all our conversations melded in with the luscious environment have definitely left a lasting impression on me and this is a part of the world that I would love to return to someday.
This Camp is beautiful and clean, accomodation in the nature give is you a real experience into the wildlife. The staff and people take care of us like at home it's unbelievable. The Moremi Game Reserved is amazing, we saw lions, leopard, cheetah, elephants, girafes...and many more. The food is really tasty. Nice swimming pool, Amazing welcoming, great memories... We will coming back for sure. Thank you for everything, I'll post the pictures and videos soon. Take care all of you.
"Wonderful few days"
Camp Moremi has a beautiful setting and combines a high level of luxury with a camping experience. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and treated us to a fantastic few days after we arrived from a very negative experience. The game drives and boat trips with Kops were a highlight of every day and the meals and service surpassed our expectations. Thank you everyone for making us feel so welcome.
"Best experience I have ever had! "
I spent three days in this stunning place and they were the best three days ever. The park is amazing for both animals and nature. We saw lions, leopards, elephants, wild dogs, hippos, zebras, giraffes and many other amazing creatures. We have been so lucky but we especially have to thanks our guide, Mod, who was very experienced and knew very well the park. The resort is very small, 12 rooms, and this makes it even more special. I felt like we were a big family, breakfast, brunch and dinner were so good and well organized. We had a very good cooker. The laundry was perfect and very fast, ready in one day. There is no service for the phone and no wi-fi, I know it sounds scary but it wasn't. I was able to enjoy the nature in all its aspects. The guide that took us from the plane to the camp, Albert, was very nice and funny. It was a great experience, I wish I could stay more!!!!
"A true luxury tented experience"
The flight from Kasane to Xakanaxa Airstrip in Moremi. It was a long 90-minute flight, Iâ€™m a good flier but was very pleased to get off the plane. From the dirt airstrip it was a 20-minute drive to the lodge: Camp Moremi, Botswana our home for the next 2 nights. A traditional luxury tented camp, comprising 11 tents, we were in number 4. There is no Wi-Fi here and there is only electricity during daylight hours, so no fans or air con. But we did have mosi nets. The tents are large and beautifully furnished, the bathroom is in a separate part of the tent and you have to remember to close the door between the sleeping area, the bathroom and the entrance area or you get the monkeys in. As it was we were visited by a bat!!! Breakfast and brunch are taken in the downstairs boma and are buffet style, dinner is more formal and taken in the upstairs area where the bar is. At dinner you are greeted by the staff singing and dancing to announce dinner is ready. Afterwards itâ€™s drinks around the campfire. You are collected for dinner and delivered back to your room afterwards by security staff due to the proximity of the animals. Each tent is equipped with an air horn to raise the alarm in case of an emergency in the night. There are 2 activities a day here with both game drives and river cruises on offer. As we were being driven to the camp from the airstrip we were asked what we would like for our sundowner drink later that dayâ€¦. good sign we thought!!! We were very lucky in that we had our own guide and vehicle for the duration of our stay â€“ Kops and he was excellent. True to their word on that evening game drive as the sun was starting to go down Kops found a suitable clearing and from the rear of the vehicle produced a small table with an assortment of drinks and nibbles. Having a G&T stood in the bush whilst watching the sun go down was a truly surreal moment. Not much sleep had been had I must add due to the close proximity of hippoâ€™s outside the tent. We embarked on a game drive which was to take us a long long way from the camp and it was 1030 before we returned. It was very hot once the sun came up but we stopped for morning drinks and snacks and there was always a â€˜friendlyâ€™ tree to be found if needed. We saw more fantastic game and nothing was too much trouble for Kops. Returning to the lodge you are greeted with brunch which is a bit of everything. There is nothing to do then until the afternoon activities recommence at 1530. Although there is a pool is was very hot â€“ so we took a siesta instead. We were given the choice this morning as we were due to go to the airstrip for a late morning flight: lie in and leisurely breakfast or early start for a game drive with all our bags with us to go straight to the airstrip for our next flight. Needless to say we opted for another early start. We were happy just to have a drive round and see if we saw anything but our guide Kops had other ideas. He had heard about a leopard at the far end of the park, so he put his foot down and we were rewarded with a remarkable sight. Next he heard over the radio about lions in the opposite directionâ€¦.so off we went. He was determined to find us these lions and he succeeded. It was then off to the airstrip for our next flight in to the Okavango Delta. This camp was probably my favourite of the four Desert and Delta Camps we stayed in - thanks a large part to our guide Kops who was fantastic.
