Moremi National Park
It is the only officially protected area of the Okavango Delta, and as such holds tremendous scientific, environmental and conservation importance. Arguably voted the best game reserve in Africa. Its unique in the history of how it began. It is the first reserve in Africa that was established by local residents. Concerned about the rapid depletion of wildlife in their ancestral lands – due to uncontrolled hunting and cattle encroachment – the Batawana people of Ngamiland, under the leadership of the deceased Chief Moremi III’s wife, Mrs. Moremi, took the bold initiative to proclaim Moremi a game reserve in 1963.
It is now one of the top destinations for travellers wishing to experience Africa as it was centuries ago in its most natural and unspoilt condition.
The Moremi Game Reserve, although not one of the largest parks, presents insights and views even for the most experienced of travellers. It is home to nearly 500 species of birds (from water birds to forest dwellers), and a vast array of other species of wildlife including the big 5 .With its stunning landscapes and sheer diversity of fauna and flora makes this a highly desirable place to visit.
After setting up camp we have a light lunch followed by a late afternoon game drive in Moremi or the Khwai Concession, of course a sundowner is in order while you take in the colors of the sunset. Back to camp we gather to prepare our evening meal and then move to the campfire to share stories of the day’s adventures. Retreat to the comfort of your tent you can fall asleep listening to the sounds of the African Bush.
A typical safari day starts at sunrise, with Tea and Coffee around the campfire before we head out on an early morning game drive. The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is early in the morning and late afternoon as most animals are active in the cooler parts of the day.
Having spent the morning exploring the wilderness, we return to our camp for lunch, before a siesta or just relax with a book and the sounds of the wilderness.
Afternoon tea is best in the cool of the afternoon before you head out into the wilderness once more. We spend the day game driving and watching water holes as the animals gather to quench their thirst and marvel at yet another African sunset.
