A little bit about Moremi Game Reserve
Welcome to the oldest protected section of the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
A 100 years after explorer David Livingstone called this land ‘country full of rivers’, the environment and wildlife in the Moremi area were under threat. It is because of the bold, local Batawana people that this area was proclaimed Moremi Game Reserve in 1963, making Moremi the oldest and first protected reserve of the Okavango Delta.
As a sign of gratitude, the reserve is named after Batawana tribe members, Chief Moremi III and his wife. Now, the Moremi Game Reserve is one of the most diverse reserves with surprises everywhere, even for the most seasoned Africa-travelers.

The camp works hard to minimise its environmental footprint and when staying at Khwai you feel like you are nature's guest and not intruding. The tents are spacious, clean and the beds super comfy.

The camp is beautifully appointed and maintained and the food was excellent, whether served in the dining room or outside under the shade of the huge trees.
The best way of getting an idea what the Moremi Game Reserve is about is by seeing some incredible footage from the area. View this video of Camp Moremi to experience one of the lodges and wildlfe in the game reserve.
Be careful, after watching this video you can be sure that you want to travel to Botswana. Today.
TaxiMike about Mombo Camp on Tripadvisor
It is truly the Land of Plenty. It is hard to drive for more than a few minutes without coming across zebra, giraffe, impala or other game.
Harald W about Machaba Camp on Tripadvisor
Quite a number of animals are passing through the camp – imagine you are in the swimming pool and a group of elephants is passing by only a few meters from you without any “protection” in between!
SWNH about Sango Safari Camp on Tripadvisor
We loved Moremi, mainly because it was the least developed and crowded of all the parks we visited.
