Moremi Crossing Camp
Moremi Crossing Camp: Our View
Moremi Crossing Camp used to be a pure ‘water’ or ‘wet’ camp. This means that much of the area around the camp is water with pockets of dry land. However, water levels in this western area of the Okavango Delta have dropped to such a degree that camp activities have had to be modified to now include one game drive daily.
It is one of two camps in this area owned by the same operator and is much larger than it sister camp, Gunns Camp. With 16 rooms this is the largest camp in the Okavango Delta and is definitely not ideal for people looking for a small intimate camp.
However, it is also one of the cheapest camps in the Delta and the fact that the rooms and facilities are of a high standard makes this camp exceptionally good value for money.
The large size of Moremi Crossing means that it may not appeal to everyone. But its reasonable price makes it a great choice for clients on a budget. It works especially well as part of a longer safari itinerary which includes camps offering high quality game drives and it offers a very different experience and change of pace to the land based safari camps.

Moremi Crossing Camp: The Details
Moremi Crossing Camp is located on a palm island surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains of the Okavango Delta.
The 16 tented rooms are surprisingly smart given the reasonable price of this camp and have ensuite bathrooms with outdoor shower. They are built looking out on to the river with private decks to relax on. It should be noted that the large size of this camp means that some rooms are quite a distance from the main camp area. Clients with walking difficulties should advise us in advance and we can request a closer room.
The main camp building is a large open plan deck with thatched roof and stunning views onto the river. This contains the lounge/dining and bar area and a short walk leads to a very lovely pool area.
Moremi Crossings Camp offers one game drive daily as well as mokoro and walking safaris - altogether a high quality game viewing and diverse safari experience which allow clients to really learn about the amazing eco system that is the Okavango Delta. Many camps in Botswana have stopped offering walking safaris but this activity is always offered at Moremi Crossing and is a fantastic opportunity for clients to view animals from a very different perspective.
