The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, giving rise to significant contrasts in habitat. The reserve was named after Chief Moremi of the BaTawana tribe, the local group of people who predominantly lived in this region. These bushmen people were allowed to stay in the area designated for the reserve, hence Moremi is designated as a Game Reserve and not a National Park. Wildlife habitat includes mopane woodland, acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. Only about a third of the reserve is land, the rest being the waters of the Okavango Delta. It is home to nearly 500 species of bird (from water birds to forest dwellers) and a vast array of other wildlife including buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, impala, red lechwe and African wild dog. Our time here will provide plenty of opportunity for game viewing and also to enjoy the sounds (and stillness) of the delta.
Camping in private designated campsites with ensuite bush ablutions on every tent.
