It’s here where intimate eco-camps take cover beneath tall statuesque trees signifying a safari like no other in all of Botswana. Community guides paddle traditional canoes up secret channels in pursuit of Pels Fishing Owls on your journey of a lifetime.

Did you know?

Moremi Game Reserve covers almost 40% of the Okavango Delta and is fed by the Okavango River that runs from Angola to Moremi, later just petering out in the Kalahari desert, never making it to the Indian Ocean. It is a wildlife wonderland and biodiversity masterpiece.


  • Moremi Game Reserve is called the Garden of Eden for a reason – lush riverine habitats, grasslands, floodplains, lagoons, and tall trees full of presence. 
  • It’s a good place to see rare predators such as cheetahs, hyenas, lions, leopards and wild dogs.
  • Both black and white rhinos are slowly being reintroduced into Moremi for safekeeping.
  • The dry season (May to November) is best for exciting game drives to water sources where a wealth of thirsty animals gathers. The wet season (December to April) is best for Mokoro rides to secret lagoons.

Whats special about Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi was the first reserve in Africa to be established by local residents in 1963. Mrs Moremi, the wife of deceased Chief Moremi lll, supported the Batawana initiative to protect the wildlife in their ancestral lands from uncontrolled hunting and cattle encroachment. In the 1970s, Chief’s Island was added to the game reserve, having previously been the chief’s hunting grounds. The reserve is a tribute to these tribal members for their foresight. 

The Khwai Concession spans 1,800 km on Moremi’s border and has been transformed from a hunting concession to an actively managed conservation area. The Khwai Development Trust runs the show on behalf of the Khwai Village community offering popular rustic eco-camps with mokoro and boat excursions, walking, and cultural tours. Meanwhile, Khwai Private Reserve embraces an astonishing 200,000 hectares of untamed wilderness on the edge of the Delta, tucked between Moremi, Chobe, and the Kwara concession to the west. The Khwai River is the central feature.
