Stunning Savannah game and birdlife viewing
Moremi is considered by many to be one of Africa’s most beautiful game reserves, with an astonishing range of wildlife that includes a generous serving of the Big Five.
Named after the chief of the Batawana tribe which created the reserve, Moremi lies to the north-east of Maun. It spreads out across about one-fifth of the vast Okavango Delta. Animals such as giraffe, leopard, black rhino and elephant come and go with the seasons.
Park game viewing is between July and October. During this time, the animals tend to congregate around the park’s permanent water sources or take shade under towering mopane trees.
Moremi’s diverse intertwined ecosystems, from floodplains and grasslands to riverine forests and lagoons provide rich habitats for the wildlife. They also offer varied landscapes for those lucky enough to be out exploring the area on a safari on foot, by 4x4 or balancing in a dugout canoe.
The park sees relatively few visitors, and is only lightly scattered with lodges, but those that do make the journey to this idyllic Botswana reserve are impressed by the amount of wildlife they spotted. They also tell us that the truly sensational sunsets that close each day make Moremi an unforgettable experience.
