Botswana is famous for tipsy cinematic sunsets spilling like grenadine across wide horizons, star-studded night skies, and a sense of kinship with Nature in a landscape that heals the heart.

Reconnect with your inner wilderness in the arms of Botswana

O Bona Moremi Safari Lodge, on the boundary between the famous Moremi Game Reserve and the Khwai Wildlife Concession – think spectacular wildlife sightings – has created a magical space conjuring the simple explorer ethos of yore, when a shared bottle of brandy enhanced the narrative of crackling campfire yarns.

A wild time at O Bona Moremi is guaranteed. As you unwind to the soft murmurs of a Khwai River tributary, flanked by floodplains and riverine forests; its magnificence best viewed from the elevated deck of O Bona Moremi Safari Lodge’s dining and lounge facilities, a sense of reconnection with the wilderness will restore the most jaded soul.

Relax on your tent balcony and let the sounds of the Botswana bush wash over you.

O Bona Safari Lodge and their Mobile Camp both offer land and water-based activities. There are marvellous night drives in Khwai. Visitors thrill to elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo, hippo, plains game and wild dog sightings. The smaller servals, caracals and bat-eared foxes survive on birds, lizards and scrub hares. Guests can also experience local life in the heart of Big Game Country at the little village of Khwai, just adjacent to the north gate entrance of Moremi Game Reserve.
