I'll start by saying I put a lot of weight on these trip advisor comments and from the comments I read and for the price we paid, I had high standards for this place. I was a bit weary about the bathrooms being separate from the tents, but willing to give it a try (only learned after booking that they were remodeling/enclosing). I have to say, camp moremi exceeded my expectations. Perhaps it was because it was newly renovated so everything felt brand new, but I think it was more than that. I think the staff was great, the facilities were great and the food was great. Everyone was always smiling. We spent two nights there before heading off to Victoria falls and I'm disappointed that we didn't stay one more night. The bedroom tent is now connected to the bathroom tent by a larger tent that encloses the two. You still have to go out the door to get into the bathroom, but I felt perfectly safe at night. As other people have mentioned, you hear wildlife at night (we had a hippo eating just outside of our tent!) and that is why I liked it. There is no internet or phone service and normally I'm fine with that. Unfortunately, my family needed to get a hold of me to pass on an important message and it just waited until my return (no fault of the camp). The electricity does go out at 10PMish, so you need to charge things during the day... but that is no big deal because you have plenty of time after lunch and before high tea to do whatever you want around the camp.
One thing to note. I have been on safari previously to Kruger. In my limited experience, I found that the wildlife viewing may be better there (we saw the big 5 in kruger, but not in Botswana). Still, it was great to see different terrain... I loved experiencing the delta and I felt like because there was more brush (as compared to Kruger) the guides are better at tracking via footprints and animal calls. I learned a lot about tracking during this trip (our guide was Lets). Also, though you don't see the big animals on the boat safari (besides hippos and maybe elephants from afar), I highly recommend doing it for the change in perspective. We saw crocs, birds and learned about various plant life. We also saw a hippo breaching like a dolphin... I'll probably never see something like that again in my life.
I highly recommend camp moremi!
