Moremi Game Reserve
Consisting pans, floodplains, lagoons, grasslands, forests of acacia trees, savannahs and dense Mopane Woodlands, the Moremi Game Reserve spans almost a third of the Okavango Delta. Named after Chief Moremi of the Batswana tribe, the reserve combines permanent water with drier areas, which create some startling and unexpected contrasts and boasts one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems in Africa - home to virtually all herbivore and carnivore species including the endangered black and white rhino.
Why the Moremi Game Reserve?
Expect to see a wide diversity of wildlife including huge herds of elephant and buffalo, antelope, hippopotamus, crocodile, lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah, black and white rhino, giraffe, zebra, African wild dog, springbok, warthog, baboon and the list goes on. Moremi's finest area is probably Chief's Island, where you'll find several of Botswana's top safari camps. However, there are several prime areas on the edge of the Mopane Tongue, where the land meets the Okavango's permanent waters, which can also be reached with a mobile safari, including the Khwai River.
