Moremi Game Reserve
The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta often being spoken of as one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa. It provides permanent water yet also has dry areas. This creates a good variety of scenery throughout the reserve. The Moremi Game Reserve covers nearly 20% of the Okavango Delta and supports a range of habitats having one to suit each animal.
Chiefs Island and Moremi Tongue are important geographical features on the reserve. Chiefs Island is the finest. The reserve was established by the Tawana people in order to protect the magnificent wildlife that was at threat by hunters. This makes the reserve one that is particularly unique to Africa. The reserve was therefore named after the Tawana chief Moremi.
Lagoons are littered with snorting hippopotamus and sly crocodile, yet the floodplains and acacia forests see great numbers of elephant and buffalo in their herds. Bird species are commonly seen here with water birds such as ducks, geese and heron. Whilst the riverine woodland is scattered with giraffe, cackling hyena, jackal and antelope. Predators such as prides of lion, cheetah, leopard and packs of wild dog are also resident in the area. The game in Moremi Game Reserve is abundant all year round yet is best seen during the dry season between July and October. This is when the seasonal pans become dry and the wildlife gathers on the permanent water areas.
Whilst in the Moremi Game Reserve there are two camps we highly recommend. Kewtsani Camp has five furnished luxury tree house chalets. Enjoy watching wildebeest, tsessebe, lechwe and other plains game from the dining area or from the heights of your chalet. Or visit Chiefs Camp which has just 12 luxury bush chalets offering you superb game viewing for an exciting and private experience.
