Covering almost a third of the Okavango Delta’s north-eastern flank is the beautifully preserved Moremi Game Reserve. Named in honour of an important Batawana tribe chief, this unique and diverse ecosystem offers rare access to an extraordinary spectrum of animals year-round. Together with the Okavango Delta, this is one of the most beautiful tracts of wild land in Africa.
Made up of luscious landscapes, Moremi is a patchwork of lagoons, shallow flood pans and forest, providing outstanding game viewing activities whether on foot, in game vehicles or by boat. At its centre sits Xakanaxa Lagoon, a maze of deep water channels and mopane forests. Here sightings of the African wild dog and leopard are the norm along with antelope, lions, giraffe and elephants.
Wildlife in the Area
A myriad of species are found within the Moremi Game Reserve including African bush elephant, African buffalo, hippopotamus, wildebeest, giraffe, nile crocodile, lion, cheetah, leopard, brown hyena, spotted hyena, greater kudu, sable antelope, black rhinoceros, white rhinoceros, plains zebra, warthog and chacma baboon. Notably, the endangered African wild dog still survives within the Moremi Game Reserve and exhibits one of the richest pack densities in Africa. In the skies, over 400 species of birds also inhabit the reserve.
