ACTIVITIES

Camp Moremi offers a broad range of safari activities on both land and water.

For many guests, the highlight of their stay comes during the morning and afternoon game drives. Conducted in open 4x4 safari vehicles, the exhilarating game drives provide the chance to track wildlife in the beautiful surroundings of Moremi Game Reserve, a protected area renowned for frequent sightings of lion, leopard and cheetah. African Wild Dog sightings are also regularly reported, an endangered species whose numbers are rapidly dwindling in other areas.
 

Water activities involve the exploration of the water lily-ringed Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding Okavango Delta channels by motorboat.

The birdlife – which ranges from water birds to shy forest dwellers - is prolific and varied, and each boat trip affords guests exceptional bird-watching opportunities.

Other sightings include hippos enjoying the clear, cool water, and the chance to watch big game making their way through the reeds to drink or bathe at the water’s edge.
