Okavango Moremi Mopane Tongue
is a sector of Moremi National Park located to the northwest of the Okavango Delta
in northern Botswana
The the vast majority of the Okavango Delta is divided into enormous and wonderful private concession areas which are typically operated by a single safari company and are accessible only by light aircraft, offering pure and very high quality safari experiences.
This Moremi Mopane Tongue area is the exception, it is largely a public access area and takes the full load of self-drive and budget overland traffic, so it is much more busy and generally much lower quality, although some of the lodges are slightly lower cost than in the prime private areas.
At the western tip of the tongue, three lodges are literally backed up against each other in three adjacent plots, along with a range of public and private camp-sites.Camp Okuti
... is the smallest and most elegant of the three lodges in this location, with an unusual dome-thatch design. It also happens to be the lower cost of the three.Xakanaxa Camp
... is a more conventional tented camp, but really rather pleasant, if a little pricey for the location.Camp Moremi
... is the most substantial of the three properties and also has its strengths, but also seems to be a little pricey for the location.SeasonsTrips
