The whole campsite, in its entirety, is not much more than the size of our single pitch in Savute Camp in Chobe. I think that there is room for about five or six vehicles here, but we share the space with just one other 4×4.
Chobe, Etosha, Okavango, Kruger, Serengeti – we have all heard of them at some point in our lives. They all have a certain mystique about them, a celebrity status, if you will. I think Moremi belongs on that list as well…
You slowly become aware of a stillness, a complete silence, an emptiness. A calmness that competes with, yet adds to, the bluest of skies, as wide as you’ve ever seen. It, sort of, sneaks up on you and becomes more pervasive.
It’s hard to describe the feeling out there in the mud: Awesome or mind-blowing doesn’t quite do it justice. You’re out on the track in the middle of a forest all day long and YOU need to drag the car back to camp!
