WELCOME TO BOTSWANA
Moremi consists mainly of the Okavango River Delta where makoro (dug out canoes) trips can be taken through the labyrinth of reed channels offering a unique experience viewing wildlife from the water. Covering one third of the Okavango Delta, it is one of the finest wildlife reserves in Africa. The mix of Okavango Delta wetland and Kalahari Desert make Moremi Game Reserve a diverse habitat for a large variety of animal, bird and plant life. Savuti is drier with huge Baobab trees. There is a large floodplain with size depicted by the quantity of water pushing through from the delta. The Savuti area offers great game viewing at certain times of the year. The annual Zebra migration is closely followed by many Lion prides. Good sightings of Cheetah and Leopard are possible and the endangered Wild Dog also occurs here. Savuti is famous for its large concentrations of Elephants that congregate around the waterholes, making game-viewing exceptional. Birdlife is also amazing, with Secretary Birds and Kori Bustards often seen around the Savuti Marsh. Savute is one of the few areas in Botswana where the elusive Klipspringer antelope can still be found.
