Moremi Game Reserve
The Moremi Game Reserve is a area of just under 5000 sq km situated about 90km north east of the frontier town of Maun in northern Botswana. The Moremi reserve is home to all the big five as well as a vast variety of other species including the beautiful African Wild Dog and the sometimes elusive Bat Eared Fox.
One of the more common ways to explore the Moremi is to self drive, one can even Hire a 4x4 in Maun and then drive with confidence into the Moremi, a 4x4 is essential when exploring the Okavango delta and the Moremi game reserve is no exception, one of the worst parts is the section of road that starts at the little village of Serobe and ends at the wildlife veterinary gate just before the road forks at the Khwai/Moremi junction, this section is very bumpy as well as being incredibly sandy. However the roads are always changing and in the rainy season, some roads disappear altogether.
If self driving is not your cup of tea, there are…
