Moremi Game Reserve covers some 4,871 km2 and is considered one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa as it combines mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons.
It is the great diversity of plant and animal life that makes Moremi so well thought of. Habitats range from riparian woodland, floodplain, reed beds, permanent wetland through mopane forest to dry savanna woodland. The mainland part forms only about thirty percent of the reserve and the remaining area is part of the Okavango Delta.
Birdlife is prolific and varied, ranging from water birds to forest dwellers. There are many species of ducks, geese and an array of heron. Elephants are numerous, particularly during the dry season, as well buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, jackal and the full range of antelope, large and small, including the red lechwe. Wild dog, whose numbers are rapidly dwindling elsewhere, are regularly seen and have been subject to a project being run in the area since 1989.
Moremi is best visited in the dry season and game viewing is at its peak from July to October, when seasonal pans dry up and the wildlife concentrates on the permanent water. At any time of the year, game is prolific (although what is seen obviously varies with the season).
