Had an amazing time with Australian photographer extraordinaire Ken Duncan and his lovely wife Pam (www.kenduncan.com) and a group of fellow photography enthusiasts from Australia, New Zealand and the UK organised by Patrick and Elaine Brakspear of African Encounter tours (www.africanencounter.com.au).

Our guides and their support team from Safari and Guide Services (https://sgsafrica.com/) did an awesome job of setting up our mobile camp from scratch in the Khwai community trust grounds adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve and looking after us so well while we were there. Then removing all indications of our having been there when the camp was over.

We spent three wonder-filled days around Khwai and Moremi viewing and photographing antelope, elephant, fish eagle, giraffe, hamerkop, hornbill, impala, lilac-breasted roller, kudu, leopard, lion and the list goes on. You can check out some of my images at https://www.flickr.com/photos/its_all_about_the_light/albums/72157693627282180 if you like.

Great teams looking after us. And really impressed with Botswana generally and the commitment to wildlife preservation rather than hunting since 2014. Looking forward to returning!

Wildlife: here are few places in Africa where you hav concrete chance to spot lion, leopards, hyena, cheetahs, and wild dogs in one day; abundance of elephants is Amazing, antelopes (red lechwe, impala) and zebra everywhere
Scenery is absolutetly, wild, men presence is discreet altough there are many tourists
Weather in August is cool/cold in the night, pleasant and dry during the day
We spent all our nights in so-called Boga camps, camping sites assigned on personal basis, never sharing with Others, giving to you the fantastic experience of a close contact with Wildlife...no fences, we had in the camp lions, leopard, elephant, honey badgers

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.

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
