Moremi Crossing, built in 2009, is a modern and environment-friendly safari lodge in the Okavango Delta overlooking the Boro River and Chief's Island.
Built in the style of an exclusive and luxurious lodge, the camp manages to keep the price tag relatively low without compromising the essentials, these being: an beautiful and tranquil location, surrounded by the floodplains and channels of the Okavango Delta; amazing views from everywhere; exceptional game viewing and wilderness experience with elephant munching the trees nearby and hippos wallowing in front; exclusive access to first-rate game guides and activities including mokoro safaris, walking safaris and sunset river cruises; and of course comfortable accommodation, friendly service and good food.
The rooms are tented safari suites on wooden decks above the water level and connected by walkways. Each has an en suite bathroom with open-air showers - solar-heated water - flushing toilets with natural waste water filtration and large private balconies.
The living area at Moremi Crossing, buttressed by the dense riparian growth behind and the Boro River in front, is a multi-tiered wood and thatch construction above the water. Choose to laze in one of the private lounge areas, the bar, the dining area or the outdoor fireside deck.
Moremi Crossing has a small swimming pool shaded by wild fig, lined with loungers and surrounded by wild African bush.
Fully inclusive accommodation; 16 large safari-style tented suites on raised wooden decks; en suite bathrooms with solar-heated water flushing eco-friendly toilets; private balcony; large living area with two tiers and private lounge areas; swimming pool; solar powered lighting; curio shop; laundry; landing strip on Chief's Island; radio contact with Maun (20 min. flight)
Activities at Moremi Crossing focus on the water channels and the open floodplains of Chief's Island. Daily game viewing on a charming African gondola - called a mokoro - take you through pristine water channels lined with reeds, plains, animals, birds and an overwhelming assortment of sounds, smells, sights and experiences.
Guided walks on Chief's Island are equally exciting yet completely different to the gentle mokoro safaris. The guides at Moremi Crossing mention common sightings of lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, red lechwe, hundreds of bird species and smaller mammals and reptiles.
A gentle end to the day is a sunset cruise on a spacious motorboat where game viewing, birdwatching and enjoying the beautiful - guaranteed - sunset prepare you for a romantic and relaxing evening under the stars.
Moremi Crossing offers mokoro camping trips where all your equipment, food and drinks come along and your guides set up camp on the island, prepare your meal over an open fire and you bed down in comfortable stretcher bed in a - completely safe - safari tent.
