Moremi Game Reserve

Named after the former chief of the tribe who once lived there, Moremi Game Reserve is Botswana’s oldest conservation area, boasting spectacular wildlife and a heritage all its own.

EXPLORE

Moremi Safaris

Centrally located in the Okavango Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve encompasses some of the most valuable ecological territory in Botswana. With a number of characterful camps and lodges within the park, the park offers fabulous game viewing and some beautiful scenery.

Quite possibly the greatest showcase for Africa’s large predators on the continent, Moremi has a long and rich history of wildlife documentary making and you’ll soon see why. With a diverse ecosystem of animals living there, there is an embarrassment of riches on offer for Moremi safari-goers. Plentiful sightings of leopard, cheetah and lion share the limelight with wild dogs, buffalo, giraffes and rhinos, which have been recently bred back into the area.

Founded in 1963, and expanded in the seventies, Moremi Game Reserve spans around 5000km². It was established by the local inhabitants who sought to find a way to preserve local wildlife while also ensuring they could continue to live on the land. From a visitor’s perspective, it looks like an enviable life, with the reserve home to the most diverse array of animals in the country, from the Big Five to more esoteric beasts like the tsessebe, chacma baboon and blue wildebeest.

It’s worth knowing that no walking or night drives are allowed within the reserve. As such, if you are keen to visit the Okavango Delta, combine your accommodation within the reserve with one or two in the equally wildlife-rich areas that surround it, which are mostly under private management.

Top Reasons To Visit Moremi Game Reserve

Often the best safaris involve looking beyond the obvious highlights. It’s about the exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing. These are encounters that nobody could ever predict, but that make your safari genuinely unique.

Best time to go visit Moremi Game Reserve

From May to October, you can experience almost everything Moremi has to offer. With incredible weather and uncharacteristically resilient rivers — making the high season ideal for a canoe ride — the dry season in Moremi Game Reserve is an unforgettable experience.

Take in a game drive and witness the full majesty of a Moremi safari, as the animals make their way across the plains in search of higher ground. Alternatively, why not take to the river in a traditional mokoro, and experience the breathtaking sights of the reserve from the water.

You can see a different side to the Mokoro Game Reserve during its November to April wet season. Although conditions can be somewhat unpredictable during the low season, there’s an unbelievable amount you can enjoy during a Moremi safari at this time of year.

As with the rest of this part of the world, the wet season coincides with African summer, when the climate is at its most humid, and the bursts of rain are unlike any you’ve ever experienced. This is the point in the year when life begins again, as animals try to protect their newborn babies from predators on the prowl, and birdwatching in the reserve at its most in-demand.

Moremi Game Reserve (FAQS) NEED TO KNOW

Is a Moremi safari suitable for children?

Although the roads are long and the vehicles often old and bumpy, Moremi Game Reserve offers a wealth of enjoyment for children of all ages. The sheer range of wildlife which inhabit the area is worth the trip alone, but certain lodges also provide more child-friendly activities to keep your little ones entertained once you’re back at camp. 

What is the best way to explore the Moremi Game Reserve?

With so many animals to see, and so much space to view them, a 4×4 game drive is the most efficient way to experience as much of the Moremi Game Reserve in a concentrated period of time. However, for something a little more unique, a mokoro safari through the Delta allows you to see the plethora of birdlife, as well as animals you wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to witness on land.

What is the accommodation at the Moremi Game Reserve like?

As one of Botswana’s most popular safari destinations, Moremi Game Reserve lodges and camps are plentiful, and diverse in what they can offer visitors. From luxury camps to smaller bushcamps, there is accommodation here to suit everyone’s comfort levels. Get in touch with us today to discuss your needs, and we’ll help you find a lodge or camp in the Moremi Game Reserve to match what you want to get out of your trip.
