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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
