Moriti Wa Selemo

Moriti Wa Selemo, Makgadikgadi Salt pansMoriti Wa Selemo is a wonderful place to visit, it is situated in a forest, not far from the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. It is in striking distance of Lekhubu and Kukonje Islands. Stunning views of the Pans can be seen from nearby Kaitshe.

I have been there 5 times: twice camping, once staying in their “Domes” and 3 times as a day visitor. My last visit was Christmas 2013.

Highlights:

  • The Makgadikgadi Salt Pans
  • The view from Kaitshe over the pans
  • Tranquility
  • The swimming pools
  • The surrounding area with petrified wood, natural spring and great birding
  • Incredible and interesting local knowledge of the owner of the area and the pans

Location:

Situated on the South Eastern corner of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, just off the Francistown/Orapa Road, east of the Thalamabele veterinary gate. 80km east of Letlhakane.

Facilities:

Accommodation: they have very comfortable “Domes” and permanent tents. Ablutions are shared.

Three private shady campsites are available each with an electrical point, tap, braai and birdbath.

There is a bar, braais, two swimming pools, children play park, pool table and dartboard.

Best time to visit:

All year round. However if you are going to explore the pans the dry season would be better.

Tips:

  • There is plenty to see in the area so a 2 or 3 night stay is recommended.
  • Chat with the owner, he will tell you of places and things that so few people visiting Botswana or even living here have ever heard about or seen. Even after 3 years here in the area he tells me of things I never knew. A pan nearby with Flamingos, ritual rocks (created by volcanic action) etc. He also enjoys showing people all these wonders.
