A Botswana safari to the Moremi Game Reserve offers the opportunity to explore one of Africa’s most beautiful conservation areas. Lying on the eastern side of the famed Okavango Delta, Moremi was proclaimed as a reserve to allow the local BaSarwa, or Bushmen, to remain in the area.
Wildlife to spot on safari in the Moremi Game Reserve
The Moremi Game Reserve covers around 40% of the Okavango Delta and it is an incredibly rich wildlife area, quilted in wetlands, forests, floodplains, open grassland, and lily-covered lagoons. This wide range of habitats has resulted in Moremi teeming with abundant diversity and ensuring the best wildlife safaris in Botswana. When the Okavango Delta floodplains fill up with Angolan waters in June, the area becomes a popular waterhole. Thousands of animals arrive to quench their thirst.
This is the perfect time for game viewing on your holiday to Botswana with herds of elephants, buffalos and a variety of antelope species criss-crossing the landscape. Where there are loads of animals, predators like lions, hyenas and leopards naturally follow in their footsteps. Moremi is also a stronghold for the wild dog population of Botswana, the successful reintroduction of rhinos, and home to more than 500 bird species. The reserve is literally bursting with life.
