Camp Moremi is located within Botswana’s world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve, situated on the edge of the Xakanaxa Lagoon in an area known for its spectacular game-viewing opportunities.

 An exciting element of your Botswana safari is getting around. Desert & Delta Safaris’ lodges and camps are located, for the most part, in remote areas and our travelers are linked from one camp to the other by means of light aircraft. Ensuring the crucial links from the hubs of Maun and Kasane to our network of lodges and camps is performed with ease; we offer a fully integrated air charter service, operated by our sister company, Safari Air. Established in 1989, Safari Air has a proven safety record in the destination. Safari Air operates a fleet of aircraft in Botswana which include single-engine Gippsland Aeronautics Airvan GA8, Cessna Grand Caravan C208B, Cessna Caravan C208A, as well as the only Quest Kodiak 100 in Botswana.

All of our properties are in close proximity to airfields and some of our lodges have their own private airstrips. 

Unless a private charter is requested and booked as such, your flight transfers have been booked on a ‘seat on plane’ basis. Flight times are arranged according to each day's requirements to fit in with activities and the movements of all our travellers on any given day. Therefore, aircraft and the day’s scheduling may pick up and drop off other guests en route to your destination. Times will vary from day to day and will be communicated to you the afternoon before departure. Flights to Kasane for the Chobe lodges and for Victoria Falls/Livingstone depart early to meet the scheduled road transfers; so early morning activities for guests departing on these flights could be curtailed. Should you wish, private charters can be arranged, in which case you will be the only guests in the plane and you may specify your departure times. We are happy to quote separately for private charters.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Luggage is restricted to 20 kg per person on Safari Air flights. This 20 kg includes both hand luggage and travel luggage. Bags should be soft sided, flexible bags. Bags with a solid frame do not constitute ‘soft bags’. Bags MUST be completely flexible to facilitate being stowed in the ‘belly pod’ luggage compartment of the light inter-camp transfer aircraft. By not adhering to these luggage requirements, travelers stand to cause delays and incur additional costs to themselves. 

The D&D Ethos

 One of the core philosophies of Desert & Delta Safaris is, to quote the Group CEO, ’While we have large financial investments in property, buildings and equipment, vehicles, boats, engines and aircraft, by far our largest asset is our people’.

The larger part of our social responsibility programme therefore focuses on our staff who, in the main, come from relatively poor rural backgrounds.

Desert & Delta Safaris is conscious of the need to develop the human potential of the country’s citizens and a particular effort has been made to enhance skills within the company through an active and very successful skills development programme. Today a large proportion of Desert & Delta Safaris management staff are citizens of Botswana.

In response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic Desert & Delta Safaris has developed a far-reaching and integrated policy in partnership with various government agencies. This policy focuses on prevention, treatment and support as well as stigma reduction and community outreach. All staff who require ARV drugs are enrolled in the government’s comprehensive treatment programme.

Privileged to have many properties within Botswana’s National Parks and Game Reserves, Desert & Delta Safaris is committed to working with the Department of Wildlife and National Parks to ensure the preservation the unique habitats within both these and our private concessions.

Desert & Delta Safaris' parent company, Chobe Holdings Limited, is the only tourism company listed on the Botswana Stock Exchange and provides a mechanism for the citizens of Botswana to own a stake in and play a real and meaningful role in the development of the country’s tourism resource.

The Wellness Program was initiated in 2002. The program began as an HIV/Aids Policy to assist those affected by this devastating disease. In 2004 the company was invited to partner with the International Labour Organisation, which is part of you United Nations, along with 13 other enterprises from a variety of industries in a pilot programme to address HIV workplace interventions. At the end of this programme the ILO recognised us as one of the best performing companies in the country in this vital area.

Our Environment

Every aspect of our operation is monitored in terms of its environmental impact, and we work hard to maintain high standards of environmental care.

Any combustible litter is burnt in a controlled area while all glass, plastic and cans are stored in animal-proof cages and removed by road to Maun for recycling.

Our primary waste-water flows into a series of above-ground, sealed water-treatment tanks. The end product is potable water that we use to irrigate our lawns and gardens. This water is tested on a regular basis.

Our energy requirements are met by a diesel generator, housed in a sound-proofed room built from fire-resistant materials. The exhaust runs through an underground drum in order to reduce emissions, and we limit our running hours as much as possible in order to reduce noise pollution. Our hot-water systems and kitchen stoves use gas, which is brought to the lodge by road in 48 kg cylinders. Batteries are stored and packaged separately, and waste oil is used to fuel a furnace, which heats water for the staff village.

Our water supply – for showering, washing and cooking – is drawn directly from the Okavango Delta, passed through a filter and is then ready to use! A naturally well-balanced ecosystem over the Kalahari sand, like this one, acts as an enormous filter that provides us with a natural source of pure water. Its quality is continually monitored and it is entirely safe to drink.

Bottled drinking water used to be brought in by truck from Maun, but to reduce our environmental footprint we now purify our borehole water with a recently installed state-of-the-art Reverse Osmosis (RO) system. The RO system runs this already safe and naturally filtered water through an additional set of filters to further purify it. The end result is water with TDS (total dissolved solids) of less than 5 ppm. In comparison, bottled mineral water is around 10 ppm, and the Okavango Delta river water is around 20 ppm. The level below which water is considered safe to drink is 500ppm. The tap water in the average American home has a TDS of around 350ppm.

Our continuous supply of hot water is provided by electric geysers.

We ask our guests to refill their water bottles (provided) as required from the water coolers in camp.

Please take care to respect this unique environment during your stay. The Guides will help you to make sure any litter is taken back to camp and disposed of properly.

TESTIMONIALS

“Words can’t do justice to my trip with Botswana Trek Safari. From the beginning, Bill organized us in a deeply personal and informative way. His love of the country and its people shine through everything he does. He did a great job in making our trip rich, comfortable, convenient and safe. He was patient and a great bridge between cultures. I just felt so at home in Botswana. I couldn’t imagine traveling with anyone besides Bill and Jonny. It was the perfect combination of rustic adventure and comfort! Sleeping snuggly and safely in my cozy tent in the middle of the Okavango Delta with Lions roaring close by was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. The efforts to provide us with the best game drives ever, the wealth of knowledge and how Johnny and our guide Isa nurtured all of our interests was just so generous! From grasses to medicinal plants to trees, animals, birds and even stars to the history of the country we learned so much about the web of life in this wondrous place, this Eden of Africa!! I hope I go back many times. I am still dreaming of Botswana drinking my bush tea. And the food and wine….Fantastic!”
