Simplicity, luxury, and the vast floodplains of the Okavango Delta… In short, these are just some of the highlights of the lavish tented camp at Moremi Crossing. Not to mention the sights and sounds that are part and parcel of the vast aquatic wonderland of the delta. The camp’s 16 spacious luxury tents on raised decks all have en suite bathrooms and their own verandahs with jaw-dropping views across the unique combination of grasslands and water. There’s also the option of a family tent, and the plush honeymoon unit is by far the most popular.
Moremi Crossing’s main building boasts a spacious dining room and deck overlooking the Boro river and Chief’s Island, complemented by a selection of small private lounges with one goal in mind: ultimate relaxation and comfort.
To cool off, without the fear of a crocodile joining in, there’s a big swimming pool with an idyllic sundeck. And to round the experience off, scrumptuous meals are par for the course, and especially welcome after a day of exploring the wonderful wildlife of the area.
As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, the Okavango is known for its unique blend of riverine forests, situated on thousands of islands interspersing the vast blue waters of the Okavango river. Amazingly enough, the river never makes it way to any sea or ocean, creating a sensitive ecosystem that’s been intriguing naturalists and casual travellers alike.
The delta hosts a vast array of Africa’s most impressive mammals and reptiles. The cunning Nile crocodile, the odd-looking hippo, the giant African elephant and the king of the Kalahari itself, the majestic lion – they’re all here. And with Moremi Camp’s guided tours, accompanied by local guides with a well-trained eye to spot the game in its natural habitat, you’ll get a rare glimpse of Africa in all its unspoilt splendour. Walking tours is a wonderful way of getting up close and personal with the wildlife, but be sure to also slot in a half- or full-day trip in one the traditional dug-out canoes, called mokoro.
