O Bona Moremi Lodge in Botswana

Location

Situated in the mighty Okavango Delta

Your Safari Lodge in Botswana

The O Bona Moremi Safari Lodge is situated in the Khwai Concession Area bordering the Moremi Game Reserve on the eastern tip of the Okavango Delta. With “O Bona” meaning “look there” you can see the Moremi Game Reserve from our lodge in Botswana. The Safari Lodge itself spreads out on the edge of a riverine forest under shady trees overlooking a tributary of the Khwai River. The central location of our Safari Lodge in Khwai gives you perfect access to Botswanas best Safari Destinations including the Moremi Game Reserve, Savuti in Chobe National Park and the Khwai Concession itself. There are no fences neither to the bordering Moremi Game Reserve nor to Savuti/Chobe and other bordering Concessions enabling animal migrations and stunning game viewing in all of the areas. Khwai Concession is one of the few Safari Destinations in Botswana where Night Drives are allowed giving the chance to observe rare nocturnal animals.

The perfect Location for a Lodge in Botswana

With only 3.5 hours drive from Maun the O Bona Moremi Safari Lodge is located only a stone threw away from the Moremi Game Reserve in the bordering Khwai Concession. The eponymous Khwai River forms a natural barrier between Khwai Concession and Moremi Game Reserve. The Khwai Concession itself contains 180 000 Ha and is sandwiched between two of Botswanas most prominent Game Reserves – Savuti and Moremi Game Reserve. As there are no fences between the three safari destinations all of the inhabiting animals including lions, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippo, zebra and various antelope species are able to migrate throughout the landscapes. Khwai´s idyllic landscape is determined by wide open flood plains, green riverine forests and numerous small river sows.

Although the similar flora and fauna can be found in Savuti, Khwai and Moremi Game Reserve, Khwai is known for exceptionally good leopard sightings. Furthermore it is one of the best places to observe the endangered wild dogs. One explanation could be that the lions as the biggest rival of both leopard and wild dog rather stick to the Moremi Game Reserve. As the Moremi Game Reserve is only a 10 minutes drive away from our lodge, safaris and full day game drives in Moremi are possible. Given the fact that O Bona Moremi is located in the Okavango Delta Core Zone, we also offer boat safaris on tributaries with traditional Mokoros. Additionally we give guests the opportunity to experience the lifestyle of an original local community living in the heart of Big Game Country by visiting the little village of Khwai which is immediately adjacent to the north gate entrance of Moremi Game Reserve.
