Welcome to Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi has a distinctly dual personality, with large areas of dry land rising between vast wetlands. The most prominent ‘islands’ are Chief's Island, accessible by mokoro from the Inner Delta lodges, and Moremi Tongue at the eastern end of the reserve, which is mostly accessible by 4WD. Habitats range from mopane (woodland) and thorn scrub to dry savannah, riparian woodland, grassland, floodplain, marsh and permanent waterways, lagoons and islands.

With the recent reintroduction of rhinos, Moremi is now home to the Big Five (lions, leopards, buffaloes, elephants and rhinos), and notably Africa's largest population of red lechwe. The reserve also protects one of the largest remaining populations of endangered African wild dogs.
