Moremi has been described as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa, with a great diversity of plant and animal life – making it a ‘must see’ for any Botswana Safari. Moremi contains – within its boundaries – approximately 20% of the Delta, and a vast range of habitats, acacia forests, floodplains, reed beds, lagoons, enduring wetland through mopane forest, and dry savanna woodland. The mainland part forms only about thirty percent of the reserve – the remaining area being part of the Okavango Delta.
The beauty of Moremi is captivating, and the wildlife is amazing, making Moremi a privileged destination for an unparalleled experience with nature. The Moremi Game Reserve is at its best during the dry season and safari game viewing is at its peak from July to October, when seasonal pans dry up and the Botswana wildlife concentrates on the permanent water. At any time of the year, the game is prolific. Birdlife is abundant and varied, ranging from water birds to shy forest dwellers. There are many species of ducks and geese, as well as an amazing variety of heron. The variety of other animals includes elephant, buffalo, giraffe, antelope, as well as lion, leopard, cheetah, jackal, hyena and wild dog. The wild dog, particularly, is a regular feature at Moremi and has been subject to a project being run in the area since 1989.
Taking a Moremi safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The culture, history, and mystic of Botswana will not disappoint when you reach your safari destination.
