MOREMI GAME RESERVE
moremi-game-reserve-botswana
1. The first wildlife sanctuary to be set aside by a Southern African community on their own land, when in 1963 the wife of Chief Moremi III decided to protect a third of the Okavango Delta for the future, and declared the Moremi Game Reserve in honour of her late husband.
2. Covering one third of the Okavango Delta, it is one of the finest wildlife reserves in Africa.
 
3. Moremi consists of a network of waterways surrounding two large islands; Chiefs Island in the west and Mopane Tongue in the east.
 
4. The mix of Okavango Delta wetland and Kalahari Desert make Moremi Game Reserve a diverse habitat for a large variety of animal, bird and plant life.

The Moremi Game Reserve is situated in the eastern part of the Okavango Delta, on the south-western border of the Chobe National Park, and covers almost one-third of the Delta.

With such a wide variety of vegetation comes a diverse spectrum of wildlife. Huge herds of Impala and Tsessebe are found in the area, while in the dry season large herds of Buffalo, Wildebeest, Elephant and Zebra flock into the reserve from the Kalahari in search of food and water. The rare Sitatunga and Lechwe antelope live in the papyrus banks of the waterways. Lions, Cheetahs and packs of Wild Dogs hunt in the open grassland. The reserve is home to over 400 species of birds, including the African Fish Eagle, the Crested Crane and the Sacred Ibis. This vast variety of mammal, bird, insect, plant, fish and reptile species have successfully adapted to the swamp conditions. Moremi Game Reserve is a wilderness paradise, with great game viewing throughout the year.

On the north-eastern tip of Moremi, the Khwai River is an area where tall evergreen trees fringe a wide floodplain. In the heart of Moremi, at the tip of the Mopane Tongue, lies Xakanaxa Lagoon. Mopane forests and a patchwork of deep waterways and shallow flooded areas create a beautiful area packed with game. Leopard and Cheetah are regularly seen and the density of antelope is amazing. The area's birdlife is exceptional.

Its wealth of bird and animal life makes Moremi a prime game-viewing area. Bird life is exceptional and diverse in all areas of the Moremi Game Reserve. During the dry season the congregation of all species along permanent rivers and waterholes makes Moremi Game Reserve one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences in Africa.
