Moremi Game Reserve- Okavango Delta

Okavango "the river that never finds the sea"

The Okavango Delta is onaeriale of the world's great natural
- a series of permanent and fleeting waterways and floodplains, which occupy an otherwise sandy corner of northern Botswana.

One of the best ways to get a true feeling for the vast spaces of the delta, which spans an area the size of Wales, and teems with African animals is to see it from above.

Rivers and pools strewn with lily pads sparkle like ribbons interspersed by wild animals. You can even see the fish as
they wiggle through the crystal-clear water below.

Home to the full spectrum of African big-game animals, the Okavango delta has earned its reputation as one of the world's premier wilderness areas.

The floods approach the mouth of the Okavango delta in Botswana, at the end of February.

In the basin, the incoming floods (Feb to April) split to form a maze of thousands of tiny islets teeming with wildlife, fish and over 450 birds.

This flood forms the miracle of the Okavango delta - a vast, oasis which results in a pan-shaped delta, with a handle to the north and to the south the kalahari desert.

The Okavango can be divided into three main habitats:
# The Main River
# The Permanent Waters
# The Dry lands

Game Reserves making up the Greater Okavango complex include Moremi and Linyati

Game Viewing

The best time is from May-October when the animal life is concentrated along the flooded areas and the vegetation has dried out.
