Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi Game Reserve

Covering much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta, the reserve combines drier areas with permanent waters creating one of the most unexpected and startling contrasts in a natural reserve. A surprising diversity can also be seen in the types of woodland, ranging from acacia and mopane forests, to lagoons and floodplains.

You can explore this area not only in a ‘4 x 4’ but on foot and by ‘mokoro’ (the traditional dug-out canoe), allowing for a diverse range of experiences, which make the Reserve one of the most sought after places in Botswana.
Apart from taking game and photographic safaris, you must visit the Paradise pools, one of the loveliest corners of Moremi. At its best during the dry season, the Reserve showcases trails leading through reed-filled swamps and past forests, to the delightful diverse wildlife drinking at the receding shoreline of waterholes.

The Moremi Reserve is home to a vast array species of wildlife, including lions, elephants, leopards, cheetahs, buffalos, giraffes, impala, jackals, hyenas, the red lechwe, and the African wild dog. The best way to take in the complete diversity of the Reserve is to experience it via a safari followed by a ‘mokoro’ trip, ending with a serene stroll in the tranquil land.
