Essential Traveller Information
PLAN YOUR TRIP
Proclaimed a game reserve in 1963, and the only official protected area in the Okavango Delta, Moremi was established by local residents to preserve the natural resources of ancestral lands. The Reserve, some 5,000 sq km, is equivalent in size to the country of Trinidad and Tobago and contains a classic blend of land and delta landscapes, including wetlands, waterways, lagoons and pools, dry salt pans, grassland, woodland, and mopane forest. These ecosystems host a vast array of terrestrial and aquatic game and predator species, as well as over 560 species of bird. Optimal game viewing is from May through to November, when the drier climate means that game shift to areas closer to waterways and lagoons to drink, bringing with them the interests of predator species. The dry season is accompanied by more moderate, lower temperatures with night time dropping to single digits. The wet season - December through to April - sees much more unstable weather conditions with higher temperatures and characteristic storms and rainfall. This rainfall drives regeneration of the plant life, providing cover for the annual birth of young antelope and other game species.
