nicely settled camping spots at the entrance to Moremi Gorge Conservation Trust; very spacious places. Very large plots, private braai stand, sink and ablutions (also warm water).
BWP 120p.p plus BWP 50 for car, incl. 60 BWP entrance for the hike
Short drive to the mouth of the gorge, and there is also a walking trail leading here. Entrance to the gorge only with a guide.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
We stayed 4 nights in this very well appointed campsite. Large pitches (there are 2 permanent tents on the sites but still plenty of room for 2 trucks with rtt. fireplace, bbq, kitchen area with cold water tap and electric socket, lights. clean and lovely private bathroom with hot, hot outside shower. Amazing Bush sounds all night, Bush babies in the trees and so many birds! Did the gorge walk which is really easy but fun with a guide, takes about 1.5 hours as there is no rush. There is also a 6 hour hike to the source of the waterfall which is more scrambling. Each evening we walked to the dam, about 20 mins from the camp and watched the wildlife, zebra, eland, baboons, kudu, terrapin and many, many birds. Very fast WiFi at the camp reception and at the lodge which serves drinks and meals. firewood 35 pula a bundle. gorge walk 80 pula pp.Report Check-In
All as described below but don’t stay over a weekend as had a group of party goers playing music until 4am!!Report Check-In
Very nice resort with posh tent-like chalets, a restaurant with elevated deck overlooking the reserve, an infinity pool, and a campsite. We stayed one night and were the only people camping. Sandy, flat site with ample tree shade. Very clean bathroom with outdoor shower. Only one power socket, in the ablution block. Very nice braai stand. 210 pula pppn for two of us in a roof top tent. There is a guided walk to the waterfalls for 50 pula pp.Report Check-In
There is an alternative access for larger vehicles to get to the camp area. We were told we could not camp in the main carpark, so opted for an enjoyable day visit. Instead we wildcamped at the gravel pit up the road.Report Check-In
Note: Most trucks will NOT fit through the gate. You have to stay on the parking place outsideReport Check-In
We loved this spot.. we parked our Motorhome #RVkumusha at Kgosi Days camp site under an incredible morula tree. Hot clean shower and loo. Our guide at the gorge was Zumba that was excellent. We saw a mountain wagtail that was a first for me!!Report Check-In
2021 prices for the gorge only :
- 55 Pula per car
- 80 Pula per adulte
- 55 Pula per kid from 6 to 12 years old
- children under 6 are not allowed.
we found it to be a bit too expensive for an overlanding family of five, so decided not to go. we went to Motetane gorge instead (near old palapye), where we paid 30 per adult, 30 per car and 15 per kid, the younger one (6 years) free. the fee allows you entrance to the gorge and the ruins of old palapye.
Same as previous, we were equally confused about the camping amongst the other tents but were the only ones here. Restaurant was all packed up but they offered us instant nescafe coffee for 20P.
Kesa is a nice guide :)
Price now is P160pppn and the P55 for the car and P10pp for tax.
We camped at Moethi and it was quite a squeeze with our pick up truck and rooftent because there are already 3 of the lodges own tents on the lot. There is only one toilet, shower and powerpoint so if there are also other people renting the tents, it would be too crowded and not worth its value. We were fortunate that it was only us.
We did not go to the restaurant which is 3km from the campsite because our tent was already set up which is inconvenient because there is no other way to get there other that to hike.
We did enjoy the gorge though. The entry abd guide fees are included in the campsite price. We did the 5 hour hike so 5 waterfalls plus the source and our guide was Kesa. The hike includes a fair bit of steep scrambling and climbing up rocks and through the river so agility and a fair amount of fitness is required. The gorge is really worth visiting and we learnt quite a bit about vultures and eagles from our guide.
As said before. Best clean ablutions and hot showers we have had so far! Camping between their tents is what you need to get used to. Beautiful hike to 3rd waterfall. Ask for Tico as guide, he was very knowledgeable. Free and fast wifi at reception.Report Check-In
NOTE WATER IS NOT POTABLE AT PRESENT.
We also stayed on Moeti which has good shade and plenty of space for the Land Rover and Caravan. Facilities as described previously. I don’t quite understand how this operation works, each campsite has a number of ready erected tents and you camp in the middle of them. Only 3 campsites in total.
We did the walk from the campground to the restaurant a number of times, after being in National Parks for 6 months it was great to walk. There’s a nice open area about 1km from the campground where if you’re lucky you can see wildebeest, Eland, Kudu and zebra. The trail is well marked every 100-150m to the restaurant, and an easy walk in the cool but has limited shade and hard going in the midday sun. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP ON THE TRAIL AS YOU CROSS THE FRIST DRY RIVER BED, this is about 100m from the start. Stop in the river bed and look for the next marker, about 10m ahead. At that marker look for the next marker in about 20m, do not take the bigger animal track that branches off to your left. From here on the trail is easy to follow as far as the restaurant. We were told that the trail from there to the gorge is overgrown and just followed the road. Total distance to the gorge is about 4km and with stops to view wildlife etc will take around an hour.
The entry for the guided tour to the waterfalls is included in the campground fee. If you want to go to waterfall No.5 or the vultures you need to book and these tours are only available week days. Note the new high prices from December 2020 on the website. Campground fee remains the same.
While on the expensive side, we really loved the campsites themselves. Braai stand/fire pit at each site as well as private wash-up area and ablution with a lovely outdoor (hot) shower. The swimming pool at the restaurant is fantastic and has a lovely view of the gorge.
Beers were reasonably priced, however food was expensive so we did not try.
With regards to the hike into the gorge, there are two options available- 1st is a short hike (2hrs) to visit the first 3 waterfalls. The 2nd is longer (approx. 5hrs) taking you to the source and a Cape vulture nesting site. If you wish to do the longer one, you must specify upon booking/arrival (and do so a day in advance). Both hikes included in the camping price.
For 2 people/1 vehicle/1night we paid 470 pula.Report Check-In
Great campsites with fabulous facilities. Loved the guided gorge walk but signage to walk from the campsite is dismal.Report Check-In
The camping is pretty well organised, you have private toilet and hot outdoor shower, also electricity point and some surfaces for cooking. Price is expensive to be fair but the gorge is included. The restaurant has a pool but is about 3 km walk from the camping itself (In the road to the gorge) The spot closest to the reception (Moeti) also has WiFi, he rest of the spots are to far away but WiFi is offered at the reception or in the restaurant area.
Price is still 200 per person, 50 per car and 10 per bed levy per person.
They also have super well equipped cabins with WiFi from 1600 onReport Check-In
Very nice Campground. You have your own ablution and outdoor shower which is clean. They have washing possibility. We can recomend it.Report Check-In
Not for big/high trucks. The roof of the entrance is too low. For visiting, the people bring you to the start of the walk. Really nice trail (1,5 h).Report Check-In
Very nice spacious campsites, very private. Amazing shower! Price is still 200 pula pp, 50 pula for car and 20 bed levy. If you stay at the campsite the gorge entry is for free. The walk from the campsite is not very well sign posted at the end so from the restaurant (3km from campsite) you might want to take the main road. Restaurant itself looks good, nice setting and good for a refreshing drink and dip in the tiny pool.
Note: Check for ticks! Our ankles were covered with them after the walk!Report Check-In
We only made the hike for 60p pp. It is pricy we think but worth as the gorge is like from an other world. You definitely do not expect an area like this here.
guide was included and he gave a lot of information. on weekend it seems to be crowded so for a better enjoy come during the week.
entrance is at
but from the village it is very well sign posted
This place is in wrong location - it is located at -22.58300, 27.43220Report Check-In
Spacious campsites, feeling very private surrounded by bush, private ablutions with outdoor warm shower. Very good, high quality. Small hike from here through bush to gorge entrance or can drive it (3.5km), gorge is sacred location and so no swimming allowed in pools and also need a guide (included in entry price) to actually enter gorge proper, hike up gorge takes about 1 to 2 hours, gorge open anytime after 6am.
Price has increased, 2 people and car entry and camping cost 450pula (approx £30), worth the cost.
If you can book it, try and get campsite named MOETI.
Description see befor, great place , interesting walk with guide. Campsite 200 Pula/pers/night, 50 Pula for car/journey,entrance and guide included.
Great for nature lovers! Camping as stated below. Firewood 30 P per bundle. Walking the nice trail through forest and grass from campsite to gorge is worthful. For us Swiss, the waterfalls are not that impressive but the whole setting within this green gorge is beautiful.Report Check-In
Prices as below.. really nice campsites, chalets look good too. Guide up the gorge is professional and really interesting! Definitely worth a visit. You can also walk to a spring to view animals.Report Check-In
