Our first stop on many trips, Moremi is genuine, remote big game country yet is found only hours away from our base in Maun.
Making up around one third of the Okavango Delta, Moremi offers swamps, rivers, flooded grasslands and tree-strewn plains that attract birdlife, fauna and big game in abundance.
Permanent swamps and rivers teem with birdlife while seasonally flooded grasslands attract a wide variety of large fauna. Much of the dry land consists of mopane veld, a species of tree that dominates much of Botswana: giant specimens regularly provide a surreal atmosphere unique to this area.
Embark on boat cruises upstream to the lagoons of Godikwe, where isolated tree islands provide breeding sites for many of the region’s water birds. A visit to the heronries is highly recommended. Here you may also see elephants cooling off in the channels or buffalo island-hopping in search of new places to graze.
To the east of the park is the Khwai River, where seasonal floodplains and impressive riverine woodland meet. Wildlife is drawn to this river in great numbers, especially in the dry season. Spectacular game viewing is almost guaranteed.
We are happy to take you to the Khwai River, Xakanaxa, Bodumatau, Third Bridge and Mboma within the reserve.
Private concession areas bordering part of the reserve cater for walkers; please ask us for more details.
