Moremi Crossing

Okavango Delta

Rating: Simple    Price from: £220 - £320 pp full board

Moremi Crossing overview

A classic tented camp in the heart of the Okavango's waterways, Moremi Crossing offers great value for money in a very scenic part of the region and is just a 20 minute scenic flight from Maun. It is an eco-friendly camp that uses the latest solar and waste disposal technology.

On a small palm fringed island near the southern part of Chief's Island, Moremi Crossing is surrounded by game rich seasonal floodplains. Its sister camp, Gunns Camp, is also on the edge of Chief's Island.

Wonderful views over the waterways and floodplains across to Moremi are interspersed with grasses and woodland can be enjoyed from the camp.

There are 16 traditional style large safari tents, all with private viewing decks and lovely views over the Boro River to Chief's Island. All the tents are airy and have en-suite bathrooms with a large shower area.

A crescent-shaped central lounge bar and dining area is built on several levels to give a feeling of space and wide ranging views. It is covered by a large thatched roof and there are smaller private lounging areas for comfort and privacy. There is a shaded deck and small pool.

Activities here focus on the water with mokoro trips and motor boat rides being the main attraction. Being a water based camp the birding here is excellent. Walking on the islands can be arranged, weather and safety permitting. On walks large mammals are often seen. Those living in the area around the camp include lion, leopard, giraffe, zebra, elephant, buffalo, wild dog and red lechwe, amongst others. If you want a real adventure it is possible to pack up camping equipment and head out with a professional guide for a night wild bush camping.

Mrs. Janet James (20/03/2017)

"Guides were excellent and we felt well looked after. The food was very good and the wine. Highlight was an elephant in the camp which the guides had to drive away so we could walk to our tent. The negative part was us not really being able to cope sitting in a Mokoro, however Amos our guide appreciated our back issues sitting in a Mokoro and we had the next 2 tours in the motor boat."

Peppygold
"Very well run. Walking and mkoro safaris provided very up close and personal experiences! You are really at one with the wild! No sounds other than the animals around you! It was great to watch the guides as they tracked animals and took us through the bush. Excellent information and a real sense of being in the world of the animals!"
Prof. Roger Butlin
"We preferred smaller camps but staff here were again very welcoming. Game walks were an excellent complement to the drives at Sango."
Mr. Peter Deer
"Apparently this year has been a slow one for the lodge - there were only four of us there the first night and 6 the following evening - but this enabled you to get to know your fellow travellers better. Again located with good view across river and beyond. The service was very good and it was nice to have the guide join us at mealtimes. "
Barbara McKenzie
"Fantastic in every way. Great atmosphere and lovely views over the delta."
