Wildlife & Activities

 

Wildlife

 

Moremi Crossing being a water based camp offers a wide variety of animal and bird species, our walks on Chief’s Island give you the opportunity to get a better view of not just the big animals but the smaller insects and birds that contribute to the Okavango’s vast ecosystem.

 

Game, which has been spotted on walks, has been Lion, Leopard, Wild dog, Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra, Buffalo, Red Lechwe and many more. On the mokoro’s you get to see the water birds like African Jacana’s, African Fish eagles and if you look carefully you will see the Malakite Kingfishers darting between the reeds, there is also a chance that your guide will find the rare Pel’s Fishing owl.

 

 

Activities

 

Time slows down at Moremi Crossing as here guests have the chance to experience the Okavango Delta and its game from a very different slower and closer perspective: whilst on foot or silently being poled by mokoro through the Delta’s waterways whilst in search of game.

 

Through the provision of high quality guiding services and new custom made boats Moremi Crossing offers a more personalized wildlife experience. Activities on offer are half or full day mokoro trips with game walks, bush walks with picnic lunch, wilderness camping and sunset motorboat cruises.

 

Game walks are conducted on Chief’s Island where you may come across numerous animal species not to mention our wide

selection of birds and insects. For the more adventurous we offer wilderness camping. This involves packing up a mokoro with camping equipment and going with a professional guide out into the Delta for a night or two. It’s a magical experience and a good way to get close to the birds and animals that the Delta has to offer.

For the less energetic there are boat cruises up and down the Boro River or you can take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere of the camp and

The Camp

Camp Overview

 

Moremi Crossing is a new 16 tented camp built on a palm fringed island surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains and overlooking Chief's Island.

 

Moremi Crossing is a new style safari camp combining luxury with simplicity. This is a 100% eco-friendly development featuring the latest in solar and waste disposal technology. the camp and its near neighbour and sister camp, Gunns Camp, is leading the way in making the Okavango Delta as environmentally friendly as possible. The camp runs off a massive solar-panel plant, which feeds power to the entire camp.

 

Hot water is supplied through a state-of-the-art solar-heated geyser system, delivering hot water to each room.

 

Lodge Layout

 

The central mess area houses a large open plan deck that has spectacular far reaching views over the Boro River onto Chief’s

Island. This half moon shaped area is built on different levels to give you the feeling of space. Dining room, bar and lounge is

covered by a large thatched roof that hugs the ancient riverine tree line and accentuates its most beautiful assets.

 

Various small private lounge areas are created for comfort, privacy and spaciousness. Within the tree line you will find a nice shaded decked area that leads to the pool. The whole camp is shaded by magnificent Llala Palms, Giant Ebony, Mangosteen, Sausage and Giant Fig trees.

Room Description

 

Luxury accommodation in 16 new-style vintage safari tents, each with its own private wooden deck and magical views over the Boro River on to Chief’s Island. All meru tents are large and airy with en suite bathrooms consisting of shower and toilet.

The camp has both a Family Tent and a Honeymoon Tent.

Camp Environment

 

Located near the most southern part of Chief's Island, Moremi Crossing is situated on a small palm fringed and treed island called Ntswi which is surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains. Moremi Crossing is a short scenic 20 minute flight from Maun.

 

As you fly over the Delta you can see the intricate twisting and turning of the waterways and the ever-changing colours where dry land meets Delta. In contrast to the northern Okavango Delta where the waters are fast-flowing and the channels and view is enclosed by high reeds and papyrus, the channels around Moremi Crossing and its sister camp Gunn’s Camp offer far reaching vistas of the Moremi’s floodplain, grasslands and marginal woodlands interspersed with Mokolwane palm islands.
