The Moremi Game Reserve is the largest attraction to self- drive tourists in Botswana. The game reserve is located 100Km’s from Maun and up to 95% of the target Market visiting is expected to visit the protected area. The Moremi Game Reserve falls entirely within what is known as the alluvial fan of the Okavango Delta and covers an area of 4900Km2 which is approximately 35% of the world famous wetland. The Game reserve has received a number of awards including ‘best game reserve in Africa’ by the prestigious African Travel and Tourism Association at South Africa’s premier tourism fair, Indaba.
The protected area is a combination of mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons which host large herds of plains game such as Buffalo, Zebra and Wildebeest. It is also home to many predators including Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Hyenas. Elephant herds numbering in the thousands take refuge in the Mopane forests in the dry winter months. It is also one of the only places in the world where you can see the Big Five since Rhino have been re-introduced.
The Game Reserve has three campgrounds Maquee, Xakanaxa, Third Bridge and Khwai which are very popular with international self- drive campers.
