Fodor's Expert Review Camp Moremi

Moremi Game Reserve, North West, Botswana

You get the best of both water and land at Camp Moremi. You'll see lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, all kinds of antelopes, and often the elusive leopard, cheetah, and wild dog. The rare Pel's fishing owl regularly plummets down to the shallow pool below the Tree Lodge to snag a fish. Bird-watching is excellent throughout the year; ask for a powerboat ride to the heronries on nearby lagoons. Huge African ebony trees, home to two-legged, four-legged, winged, and earthbound creatures, dominate the campsite on the edge of a lovely lagoon. From the high viewing platform in the trees you can look out on a limitless horizon as the sun sets over the smooth, calm waters. Tastefully decorated, comfortable tents are well spaced to ensure privacy. Camp Moremi's timber-and-thatch tree lodge has a dining area, bar, lounge, library, and sundeck with great views of Xakanaxa Lagoon.
