We spent three days/three nights in Camp Moremi, and enjoyed every moment of it. Being at the Okavango Delta, there was lots of water even in the dry season, which made it attractive for all sorts of wildlife. We saw leopards, lions, crocodiles, hippos and birds of every type, all in great numbers. Camp Moremi was a fabulous camp, with good food and pleasant staff.

Walking in Moremi Game reserve is one of Africa's most incredible and natural experiences

Getting out of the fabulous Oddballs Camp before the African sun rises is an essential part of any experience in Moremi Game Reserve. It allows you to be in the vast plains as dawn breaks and the colours begin to come to life, to hear the incredible sounds of bird chorus mixed with the lions roar and the hyenas laughter.
My guide (armed with only his bird book as guns are not encouraged in Moremi) took me for 9 days into the reserve on foot. I had no idea the difference between a walking safari and jeep safari. No motor or engine to clash with natures sounds, just your own footprints. We spent hours walking through long grasses, vast plains and dense forests. We came across so much wildlife, birdlife and insect life I came away with a completely different experience to anything I had enjoyed in the Serengeti, Namibia or South Africa. We seemed to spend most of our time watching the wildlife that's trying to move away from you or moving away from the wildlife that's definitely got its eye on you.
Standing still and staring at a growling lioness, running to the termite mound to avoid the water buffalo or mavourering past 3 bull elephants on foot is exhilarating and you never have this on a jeep. I don't know anywhere you see this outside Moremi.

3 days on More Game Reserve
Overall rating
5/5

I had the chance to spend 3 nights and 4 days in the area of the Okavango Delta/ More Game reserve. Me and my girlfriends stayed at Okavango River Lodge, really nice location with a bar/restaurant right next to the river where you can see a beautiful sunset every evening.

The reserve is a beautiful area where I had the chance to see Hippos, a mother lioness with her cubs, group of hyenas and lots (lots lots lots) of Elephants. We had a large group cross the road all around us one day when we were returning from the reserve. Rhinos are very hard to see at Moremi but not impossible, seems the local anti-poaching unit is keeping the Rhinos on a more restricted area deep within the delta so the Rhino population can be boosted up. As for the driving, Moremi does allow for self drive but I do not recommend it for the average tourist(my case). The road condition is fine as long as it is dry and you stick to the main roads within the reserve. On the secondary roads there are no signs and you pretty much have to be offroading for a good amount of time, chances of getting lost are not low there.

The guides know how to get you in and out of the best spots to see Wildlife without you having to worry to step out of the car to lock your differentials in the same area where you saw a pride of Lions the day before :)

So my overall suggestion is to book a guided a tour within the reserve, bring your camera and your tele lens if you have one and enjoy.

The Okavango delta boat tour gives you the chance to see elephants along the shallow parts, water birds, eagles, crocodiles. You have to be lucky to see water buffalos but it is possible. We did not see any :(

the best park in Botswana

Plenty of animals - even in 40C weather in Moremi Game Park

I traveled to Moremi Game Reserve with my husband, 5 year old son and my parents as part of a private game tour. The weather during the November trip was very hot - over 40 degrees C (100F) each day. Our trip included driving to the game park in the morning, stopping just outside the gate for a picnic lunch, and then driving through the park slowly to reach our camp for a sun-downer and some snacks. After an additional sunset game-drive we returned to camp for dinner and camping. We got up at 5am the next day for a sunrise drive before brunch at camp and a final game drive on our return trip to Maun.
The game sightings were incredible - we managed to spot a pride of lions including a glorious male, about 6 females and countless cubs. As luck would have it, our guide, LT, managed to find this same pride on each of our outings and we could observe their different behaviors at each time of day - absolutely amazing.
The tracks we followed were often very faint which made it feel like we were really in the wild. This gave us the opportunity to see many rare birds and animals in their natural setting.
Sunrise and sunset in the park were the most magical times when the animals are often most active and the lighting is soft and warm. This is only possible to observe if camping within the park - which was an experience in itself - we had cute tents with sleeping bags and an outside bucket-shower which was also fun - and we even had some camp visitors during the night - a honey badger and a hippo, snuffling through the camp.
Despite the heat, this trip was an incredible experience - and one to tick off the bucket list - I still can't get the grin off my son's face!

We stayed in tented "camps" that were more like 4 and 5 star hotels! The food and accommodations were first rate. The wildlife was nearby - I mean really CLOSE. Elephants would suddenly pop out of the bush. We were also fortunate enough to see a leopard hunting and lions mating. The roads are rough, so be prepared for some long, hot days in a safari vehicle. But, remember that there will be a lovely glass of South African wine and a spectacular sunset at the end of the road!
