Water-centered camp on the banks of the Boro River
One of the larger camps in the Okavango Delta, Moremi Crossing has a charming rustic and informal atmosphere. The huge crescent thatched structure housing the main area is perched on stilts above the Boro River, one of the main rivers coursing through the Delta. Activities from camp are primarily water-based - explore the channels and tributaries and vast flood plains by way of a dugout canoe or motor boat. Since water is what makes this seasonal wetland so unique, Moremi is perfectly poised to make the most of this feature.
At the lodge
You'll find the dining room and various scattered lounges all under the large thatched structure of the camp's main area. Open sides ensure a cool breeze regularly courses through, and game viewing is ever-constant. A gift shop and a separate swimming pool area are also connected. Convene here for meals and before and after activities. Though sizeable enough to comfortably host the camp's relatively large occupancy, this area can seem rather cavernous and cool.
Sixteen en-suite tents stand on stilts above the river, each private with its own panoramic view. Sandy walkways connect tents to the main area. The verandah and the outdoor showers are top features of these simple but comfortable solar-powered tents. The honeymoon suite has an outside bathtub, raised up on a deck for views of the surrounding reed beds. A family suite has two bedrooms, but just one shared bathroom.
On the edge of the Moremi Game Reserve, just a stone's throw from Chief's Island, this camp offers the traditional activities of a water-based camp and thus mokoro and boat cruising are its focus. However, you can stretch your legs on a guided bush walk - a great way to discover some of the oft-overlooked flora and fauna of the region. The focus here is the tranquility of the wilderness and not big-game viewing (though don't count out sightings of lion or wild dogs entirely - you never know). For an extra dose of adventure, spend the night on one of the Delta's islands - no permanent structures here, just a raw experience of a truly pristine wilderness.
