Moremi Game Reserve
When the people stand united , nothing is impossible. This is how the Moremi Game Park came into being. The locals of Botswana were sick of the constant destruction of their country’s fauna and flora, and aimed to enclose an area in order to conserve the wonders of their land. The area was named after King Moremi the third, who ruled over Botswana during the creation of the park. The area was defined as a game park and not a national park so the local ‘Bushmen’ were allowed to continue living in the area.
For a reasonably small Reserve, it is a surprisingly diverse, combining ancient mopane woodlands and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. You can expect to experience excellent views of Savannah game, as well as bird-watching on the lagoons.
Deltas are natural formations where mineral-rich deposits are brought to the shallow edge of a river mouth. All this nutrients causes the surrounding eco-system to become lush and abundant in wildlife. The Okavango Delta is no exception to these conditions, boasting over 500 species of bird, and a vast array of indigenous wildlife.
In 2008, the Moremi Game Park was voted as the best in Africa. Out of the vast amount of prime African safaris and wildlife destinations, this one took the cake. Visiting this area you will quickly understand why it gained so much attraction. The views look like something out of a professional photography album, but these ones don’t require editing to make them look perfect.
