Glide among labyrinths of papyrus in a dug-out canoe, spot a Pel's fishing-owl and experience the sun setting over the silhouettes of mokolwane palm trees in one of the most unique ecosystems in the world
Moremi Game Reserve is a juxtaposition of landscapes. Here, mopane woodland rubs shoulders with acacia forests and papyrus-lined lagoons. The reserve forms part of the Okavango Delta, the only inland delta in southern Africa, and offers explorers not only a wide variety of fauna and flora, but also game activities to suit every taste and fitness level. Visitors can enjoy a morning boat ride, floating between hippo pods and spotting a wide variety of waterbirds. At most lodges and camps, afternoons are usually spent tracking game in an open game-viewing vehicle. Some lodges also offer walking safaris.
Moremi was my first introduction to unspoilt Africa, the one without tar roads and cars jostling to get their Kodak moment of a pride of lions. Here it's not about ticking of the number of animal species on a list, but rather about experiences – gliding Zen-like through papyrus channels on a mokoro, listening to the call of an African fish–eagle while relaxing on the deck of your tent or watching the sun set over the distinctive silhouettes of the mokolwane palm trees. If you are a safari junkie, you will not be disappointed either. Moremi has one of the largest concentrations of elephants in the world, a beautiful lion population and dense herds of buffalo. David Attenborough would feel very much at home here.
More on Moremi Game Reserve holidays
Animals of the delta have adapted to their watery habitat, including the broad-shouldered lions that wade through the swamps, their physique far more stocky and muscular than that of their landlocked cousins. These lions have adapted to hunting Cape buffaloes. Apart from the Big Four (the park does not have any rhinos), there is also a wide variety of interesting antelope species like the red lechwe, puku and sitatunga.
Birdwatchers will find kingfishers, wattled cranes, African fish-eagles and if they are lucky, the elusive Pel’s fishing-owl. Moremi offers a variety of luxury tented camps, most with Meru-style tents and en-suite bathrooms, ensuring that although you are right inside the action, you still have access to comfortable beds, flush toilets and hot showers. Few things are as memorable as being woken up by the bass-note grunts of the local hippo pod and the crystal-clear song of a grey-headed bush-shrike.
