5 DAYS TOUR
From Maun we depart to Moremi the other part of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Chobe National
Park on the south-western part of the Park. It takes about 2hours 30 minutes to get to the park
entrance. Travelling north-east from Maun, firstly along a fine full width tar road to Shorobe, then on a
wide gravel road, a veterinary control fence is encountered locally known as the buffalo fence,
constructed to protect the flourishing cattle industry to the south from any diseases that may be carried
by wildlife. Passing through the gate, a first glimpse of the reason that this is described as 4×4 country is
obtained, as the deep sandy track ahead is in stark contrast to the previous road. After a short distance,
a left hand fork in the track is taken, travelling through wildlife country of mopane and acacia woodland,
interspersed by areas of open grassland. We travel at a low speed on this route, due to the soft churning
sand and the chance of viewing wildlife. Eventually, after having travelled 99 km from Maun, the
southern entrance gate of the Moremi Game Reserve, Magwee, is reached. Here, nestling amongst a
glade of tall Mopane trees. This is where our game drive starts. But before we embark on a game drive
we will have breakfast at the Park gate. The Moremi Game Reserve covers almost one third of the Delta.
The Okavango Delta is the largest inland river delta in the world and consists of pans, floodplains, lily
covered lagoons, grasslands, forests of acacia trees, savannahs and dense Mopane Woodlands. With
such a wide variety of vegetation comes diverse spectrum of wild life. Huge herds of impala and tsesebe
are found in the area, while in the dry season large herds of buffalo, wildebeest, elephant and zebra
flock into the reserve from the Kalahari in search of food and water. The rare sitatunga and lechwe
antelope live in the papyrus banks of the waterways. Lions, cheetahs and packs of wild dogs hunt in the
open grassland. The reserve is home to over 400 species of birds, including the African Fish Eagle, the
Crested Crane and the Sacred Ibis.
Moremi Game Reserve is a wilderness paradise with great game viewing throughout the year. We will
camp wild for 2 nights at an exclusive campsite at Khwai north Moremi Game Reserve, enjoying
activities. The magnificent Khwai River is the hub for some of the most outstanding wildlife viewing both
on the Moremi and in the Khwai community area. The camp will be set-up upon arrival at the camp site.
The campsite is where you will be having all your meals as well.
Here you will get to do 2 game drives, the first game drive you will do it as you enter the park and the
second game drive will be done later in the day after having brunch around 1630 hours. That is when
you will get to go on your evening game drive.
From the game drive you will find your water ready for your shower and your dinner ready you will have
dinner at 2000hrs. After dinner you can relax around the fire with our staff or you can retire to bed.
