Moremi Game Reserve is a national park in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The wildlife highlight here is the high concentrations of plains animals and resulting predators, including big cats.

Moremi is dominated by a large central landmass known as Chiefs’ Island, surrounded by water on all sides during the flood season. The reserve's western reaches are consumed by the Delta, and its eastern sector comprised of mopane woodland and grassland. 

The birdlife in the reserve is amazing, with Arnot’s chat, southern black tit, slaty egret and Heuglin’s robin being some of the favourites. Other specialities include; a variety of woodpeckers, barbets and weavers, Pel’s fishing owl, wattled crane, African skimmers and a host of eagles, vultures, raptors and kingfishers.

Viewing in the reserve is done by river or on land - in both cases, the huge numbers of game here will not disappoint!
