Overview

Moremi crossing is a part of a number of ‘Under One Botswana Sky’ properties located on the Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. On the border of the beautiful Moremi Game Reserve this lodge offers some fantastic walking safaris and comfortable accommodation for those on a smaller budget.

Set on an island in the middle of the Delta, Moremi crossing has brilliant access to the floodplains that spread across the area. The main building is large with an open plan deck, giving guests great views of nearby Chief’s island and the surrounding greenery. Under thatched roofs there is a dining room, lounge, bar and shop and a smaller decking area leads to a pleasant swimming pool.

Activities here make use of the many waterways and floodplains and consequently no vehicle safaris are on offer. Canoe, motorboat and walking safaris are how guests experience the Delta and are a fantastic way of seeing this unique habitat. Island camping, sunset cruises and fishing can also be organised leaving guests with plenty to choose from.

Accommodation is split into sixteen luxury Meru style tents making this a fairly large camp. Each tent is spacious and traditionally furnished with private decks and lovely views. All rooms have conventional ensuite bathrooms and solar powered outdoor showers. A honeymoon suite and Family tent are also available.

Children from 8 are welcome at Moremi, although a minimum age of 12 for walking and canoe safaris means, for the full experience, children must be 12 years or over. There are no specific activities for children as seen at more commercial properties, but guides do their best to tailor the experience to each group. The family tent can house a family of four comfortably.

Moremi has a great position on the Okavango Delta and offers a much more relaxed safari experience. The absence of vehicles makes for a nice change, although guests shouldn’t come expecting to see larger game in this way, although elephants can be reliably spotted. A high level of service and a competitive price makes this a great place from which to explore the Delta.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
