Well regarded as one of Africa's finest and most beautiful reserves the Moremi Game Reserve covers an area of untouched wilderness including approximately twenty percent of the Okavango Delta itself. Reachable by a 30 minute flight from Maun and located in the centre of the Okavango Delta, Moremi is principally made up of two large landmasses; Chiefs Island and the Mopane Tongue.
The reserve has a wide diversity of ecosystems ranging from dense mopane woodland and acacia forests to vast floodplains and lagoons. This broad range of habitat creates a stunning place to be on safari but the game here is the principle attraction; Moremi is widely acknowledged as the predator capital of the world.
Literally teeming with other game the reserve is also the only place in Botswana where the big five can be seen. Elephant and both species of rhinocerous are present along with good herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra. Plenty of antelope such as waterbuck, kudu and red lechwe provide ample opportunity for the vast numbers of predators with large prides of lion, leopard and cheetah regularly spotted on game drives along with resident packs of wild dog and hyena.
Game viewing in the reserve is at its peak from July to October when the areas water dries up and animals start focusing around the areas of permanent water. As the Delta floods recede and temperatures saw, the plains dry up and lush grass is left in their wake providing fresh supplies for the resident game and excellent photographic opportunities for those on safari.
