In the centre of the Okavango Delta is the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, a 3,000 km2 paradise and an ideal place for a Moremi safari. Proclaimed a wildlife reserve by the Tswana people in 1963, Moremi is undoubtedly one of the world’s most pristine wilderness areas. The foresight of the local community has ensured that nature has flourished undisturbed, offering a glimpse of the divine, a veritable Garden of Eden. A Moremi safari 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 a most dramatic animal sighting.
A Moremi safari consists of a network of waterways surrounding two large islands, Chiefs Island in the west and Mopane Tongue in the east. The area’s diverse ecosystems, riverine woodland, flood plains, wetlands and reed beds, mopane forest and dry savannah woodland are all flourishing, broken only by the occasional jeep track. This diversity of habitats provides rich pickings for an impressive variety of animals and around 550 bird species. As Moremi is a fenced reserve, game viewing is impressive throughout the year. However, the cool dry winter months from March to September are an ideal time to visit to experience a Moremi safari, as the chances of seeing lion, elephant, leopard, hyena, eland, kudu, roan antelope, giraffe, zebra, impala and buffalo are excellent. On the sandy riverbanks and wetlands, sightings of hippo and crocodile are commonplace. Enjoy a moremi Safari today!
