“Fantastic Wildlife Viewing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Camp Moremi was one of our accomodations during a 11 day safari through Botswana. We were there for two nights.


The lodge is conveniently located in an isolated area that is abundant with wildlife. Our accomodation was very clean and comfortable but not too modern that it eliminated the safari ambiance. The level of service during our stay was superb. We had no issues with any requests that we had. Every single staff member greeted us with a hello and smile making us feel most welcome.

ROOMS:
 There are only a small number of lodges. Each one is very nicely appointed balancing the amenities we all seek while on holiday while still maintaining a unique African ambiance.


DINING:
 The food selection and service was very good. While the variety could have been greater, the food items that were provided were cooked appropriately, tasted great and served in a fantastic atmosphere.

SAFARI: There are both water and land-based safari viewing activities. We saw a great variety of wildlife and our guide was professional and knowledgable.

Overall this is an excellent lodge that provides a very high standard of service and amenities.



We would definitely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends or family.

Room Tip: There is only a small number of rooms available with suitable distance between them. Other than a c...

We stayed at camp moremi for 2 nights and had the most wonderful time. All the staff were amazing, so friendly, helpful and accommodating, Ollie the manager was just lovely. Anything you needed they could do.
The rooms were fabulous, so well presented and serviced, we were definitely "glamping" not camping!
Our guide Coca was very knowledgable, friendly and entertaining and took us out to see lions and their cubs right up close, which was such an awesome experience. It was great to have the mix of game drives and boat cruises, plus the siesta time in the middle of the day was just perfect. The camp itself is gorgeous and food was excellent. 100% recommend, it was our favorite place in Botswana.

One of the highlights of our trip was this gorgeous park. Lodge is simple but staff is great, food good and drives spectacular. Guide Banda is made of Gold and deserves highest praise. The staff singing at dinner, always smiling and making you feel special is a rare treat in this world. Would like to return for sure. The rooms are simple for Botswana standards and the bathrooms need some maintaining but all over all it is a wonderfull place!

Room Tip: all rooms are facing the bush, so it does not really matter.

Two days at Camp Moremi...and we just managed to see a young leopard in a tree on our very last game drive. But saw plenty of other game in the beautiful surroundings, plus of course wonderful bird life on the river. The staff are all delightful, and professional. Accommodation and food top class. The Delta is unique and will hopefully stay that way.

Within 10 minutes of arriving at Moremi Game reserve, our driver Frank, had spotted a leopard stalking an impala, and that was our luck for the entire time at Moremi! Setch, Ollie and Lucky welcomed us to our home in Camp Moremi, and it did feel like home. We had fresh towels to clean our hands and faces everytime we returned from a game drive. Lucky would put the basket for the used ones on her head, which my daughters thought was cool. The accommodation was just like it looks in the pictures, clean, neat, homely and spacious. The bathrooms were clean and modern enough and the verandah was a great place to leave our shoes and drink bottles. Banda, our guide for the enitre time we stayed was exceptional. He was the master spotter, finding lions, another young male leopard, and taking us to some beautiful plains to see a compostiion of animals such as zebra, impala, kudu, hyena and buffalo. He was great at knowing where all the hippos were hiding, and of course we saw the majestic elephants. There were baboons, mongoose, badgers, not to mention all of the amazing birdlife. We laughed and chatted our way around the Okavango Delta for three days and never tired of the beautiful scenery and wildlife, topped off with the most amazing spots to watch the sun go down with a pre-dinner drink and nibbles. The water safari was another level again with us snaking our way through the reeded channels and coming across elephants waist high in water having a wash! Dinner each night was delicious, and we loved the entertainment! Three nights was a great lenght to stay and we always felt safe with the team watching over the camp. Mod, Muama, Mogo, Matty and Charlie all looked after us as well and we did feel genuniely welcome. Dint miss going to this amazing place.

Camp Moremi was the first camp we stayed at on our trip to Botswana. We were here 2 nights and wish we were there longer! It is amazing! From the moment we got off the aircraft the greeting was fabulous - when we got to camp, Setch, Hannah, Erny and Lucky were there waving to us with cool towels and warm smiles.....We felt like we were being welcomed 'home'.
Our room was divine - not just a tent! We were impressed with all the small details. Having a bushbuck and her baby eating under the tent where we could see them was so special.

Our guide MOD was superb!!! Such an assett! He had the most amazing sense of humour and his tracking skills are something to be admired. From 150m away he stopped the truck and just said "beautiful". We all wondered what he'd seen and then through binoculars we see a stunning young leapard on a branch in a tree. We couldn't believe he saw that from so far! We can't speak highly enough of Mod....absolutely loved him as our guide.

The staff at Camp Moremi are all so friendly and welcoming - the evening songs and dancing were so special to be a part of and every one of the 'team' knew your name personally by the end of the first day. Every time we saw each other we were greeted by name and a friendly smile.
The food was excellent and we were impressed with how good the chef is to create such delicacies in the remoteness of Moremi.
We are already planning on coming back and can't wait to stay at Camp Moremi again.....
You guys are fantastic and we absolutely loved our stay with you :)

We stayed at camp moremi as part of our 3 week honeymoon for 2 nights and it was magical. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after until we were dropped to the small airstrip to head back to Maun. Frank our guide was excellent and there was not one question about birtds, plants or animals he couldn't answer. We saw loads - cheetah, lions, hippos, elephants, wildebeest.....Hannah and the team made us feel very welcome and we got a beautiful 'tent' (too luxurious to call it that) with our own look out post. Soko and I really enjoyed our stay and we plan to travel to Botswana every year so we will be back to visit the family in camp moremi. Thanks again and would highly recommend this lodge to anyone visiting the delta. The dinners and all food were first class. I particularly enjoyed the sunset drinks especially with the giraffes!!
