Moremi – teeming with African animals
Apart from affording spectacular views of the Okavango and the only chance to appreciate it’s size, such flights are also the best opportunity to photograph the Delta.
Game viewing reachs its peak from July to October when seasonal pans dry up and the game congregates around the Khwai river, Third Bridge and Xakanaxa lagoon
There are a wide range of habitats in Moremi; from riparian woodlland, floodplain, reed beds, permanent wetland through mopane forest to dry savanna woodland.
The circular road system will take you through them all although it will probably he in the floodplains that you will see most animals.
In addition to large herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe and many species of antelope, one has a good chance of seeing leopard, lion, cheetah and wild dog.
For birding enthusiasts, not only does the woodland offer a wide range of apecies but the chance to drive to the edges of large lagoons which offer fantastic birding. There are many species of ducks end geese, as well as an amazing variety of heron.
These plains are crowded with impala, red lechwe, zebra, wildebeest, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and warthog grazing on the sweet grasses usually under the gaze of lions
The Reserve is a place of lily-covered wetlands, grass plains and forests, where even at the busiest time of year you’re likely to be the only spectators at the most dramatic animal sighting.
As Moremi is a fenced reserve, game viewing is impressive throughout the year.

This diversity of habitats provides rich pickings for an impressive variety of animals and around 550 bird species
there are 4 public campsites in the Reserve as well as many private lodges and camps. All have water and ablution blocks.
