Moremi Game Reserve covers most of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta - and combines permanent water with drier areas. It was rated one of the most beautiful games reserve in Africa. However, Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve is ideal for travellers looking to experience an authentic African safari experience.

Game viewing is excellent year-round, expect to encounter and sight the migratory and endangered wildlife - such as elephants, Red lechwe, giraffes, buffaloes, zebra as well as predators such as lions, cheetahs and hyenas. However, the Moremi Game Reserve boasts spectacular game viewing and bird watching - estimated to be home to close to 400 bird species.

What a time to be a young predator on the African Savanna? Options are plentiful and your chances of reaching adulthood are heightened as most prey species are also bearing their young. This makes hunting a lot easier, and water is plentiful while lush foliage provides ample cover to hide from other marauding predators, like hyena. For now this little cub enjoys life. His mom patiently allows herself to be used as a play thing; seemingly dozed off and oblivious to any lurking dangers. Do not be fooled, she is ever alert and ready to fend with her life to ensure her little one gets his chance to reign this kingdom called Mombo. #discover #okavangodelta #africanamazing #wildlife #baby #cub #bigcats #play #protect #nature #love #wildlifephotography #picoftheday
