Moremi Game Reserve | Moremi Travel Guide
In 1962 the local BaTawana people set aside a third of the Okavango Delta to protect it for the future. They called this the Moremi Game Reserve.
Khwai RiverOn the northeast tip of Moremi, the Khwai River is a lovely area where tall evergreen trees line a wide floodplain. It boasts an excellent density and diversity of predator and prey species. Recently there's been a large pride of Lion here, hunting Buffalo and Elephant, while Leopard sightings are consistently good. Saddle-billed storks, wattled Cranes and many species of Kingfishers and Bee-eaters are common.
Xakanaxa LagoonIn the heart of Moremi, at the tip of the Mopane Tongue, lies Xakanaxa Lagoon. Here the Mopane forests meet a patchwork of deep waterways and shallow flooded areas. It's unforgettably beautiful and packed with game. Leopard and Wild Dog are regularly seen and the density of antelope is amazing. The area's bird life is exceptionally varied and seasonal, from innumerable Herons, Egrets, Storks and other waders to many species of Sparrow Hawks, Buzzards and Kites.
