Moremi Game Reserve

Scroll

Moremi Game Reserve is a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary situated in the Okavango Delta. The reserve is unfenced and its boundaries are defined by natural water systems. The vegetation is varied, with dry land complemented by permanent and seasonal swamplands, resulting in an excellent diversity of both mammal and bird life. There is a great network of game drive routes through the reserve and boating can be enjoyed in Xakanaxa and Mboma where the channels are connected to permanent delta waterways.

Moremi is one of the best game reserves in Africa for viewing the endangered wild dog, while Xakanaxa contains a resident herd of several hundred buffalo whose range covers the territories of at least four prides of lion who hunt them. Breeding herds of elephant move frequently between the mopane forests and the fresh waters of the Okavango. Red lechwe are one of the more unusual antelope species commonly found here.

Game viewing in the Moremi Game Reserve is excellent year-round and varies between the seasons. During the dry season (April to October) game is usually concentrated around permanent water sources as seasonal pans dry up. From September to November, migrant birds such as herons and storks return to the area guaranteeing prolific birdwatching which remains excellent throughout the summer months. In the rainy season (November to April) Moremi captivates its visitors with wild flowers, dramatic thundershowers and spectacular sunsets. Most of the herbivores give birth during this period and the new born antelope attract a variety of predators.
