We had an extraordinary time in Zambia on our Safari Club "Big Cat Safari" ...absolutely magical. Thank you for your recommendations, they were spot on.
August 2010 Zambia
Camp Moremi is situated on the beautiful Xakanaxa Lagoon in the heart of the Okavango Delta, within the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Xakanaxa is renowned as one of the best game viewing areas in Botswana. Shaded by giant ebony trees, the main lodge is an elegant elevated thatch and timber structure consisting of a main lounge, wildlife reference library, dining room and stylishly decorated cocktail bar cooled by overhead punkah-punkah fans. The large sun deck affords an unsurpassed view of Xakanaxa Lagoon. A secluded swimming pool, covered boma and elevated observation platform assures Camp Moremi of its status as one of Botswana’s finest destinations.
Camp Moremi accommodates only 22 guests in East African-style safari tents, individually situated on raised teak platforms. Each tent is exquisitely furnished with an African teak wardrobe, luggage rack, dressing table, bedside pedestals and traditional director's chairs. Colourful woven rugs, designer linen and matching interior blinds complete your African hideaway. Each tent has its own private bathroom situated adjacent to the tent.
As Moremi Game Reserve contains large areas of permanent water, game viewing during the dry season is particularly good as animals are drawn to the permanent water sources. There are no fences between Moremi and the private reserves so the entire Okavango merges into a unified animal kingdom of grand proportions.
Activities include tracking big game on morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles and excellent bird-watching, exploring the Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding Okavango channels by motorboat. The camp is located within the Moremi Game Reserve so night drives, walks and going off road are not permitted.
We often combine Camp Moremi with the water based Xugana Island Lodge and Savuti Safari Lodge as well as Chobe Game Lodge in the North of Chobe Game Reserve in an excellent reasonably priced safari circuit.
