The main lodge building is raised high above the ground and has expansive wooden decks out the front from which the Xaxanaka Lagoon can be observed. Camp Moremi accommodates only 22 guests in East African-style safari tents. Each tent is individually situated on raised teak platforms with private adjacent facilities & viewing decks. The tented rooms fan out to the left and right of the main lodge building and each tented room is also raised above the ground on its own wooden deck which look out into the riparian forest on the edge of the Okavango Delta. In the center of the lodge garden is an expansive boma area from which guest enjoy breakfasts as well as refreshments prior to the departure on activities.

Because of its location within the heart Moremi Game Reserve, exploration of the area for the safari traveler is an exciting combination of guided game drives and thrilling boat excursions into the Okavango Delta.

Activities at Camp Moremi included tracking big game on morning and afternoon game drives by open 4x4 safari vehicle in the Moremi Game Reserve, renowned for frequent sightings of lion, leopard & cheetah, as well as wild dog, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling in other areas. Other game seen in the area are hyena, hippo and the full range of antelope, large and small, including the red lechwe.

Alternatively, guests can explore the Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding Okavango channels by motorboat, affording guests exceptional bird-watching opportunities, as birdlife is prolific and varied, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers. Before returning to the lodge on your afternoon activity, enjoy sundowners with views of Botswana's breathtaking sunsets.

Game viewing is at its best in the dry season between July and October and for the keen ornithologist birding can be very rewarding, especially between November to April. The winter months of May to August can be very cold at night, but pleasantly warm, under clear blue skies, during the day. From October until the first rains fall from late November to early December, the weather can be tremendously hot, during both day and night times.
