The Okavango Delta is an area of crystal clear water, wooded islands, grass covered flood plains and vast reed and papyrus beds. The area is well known for its birdlife, with over 400 species having been recorded in the area.

In addition it is the home of the rare Sitatunga antelope, and of the Lechwe, another antelope which has adapted to the marshy area.

The Moremi Reserve encompasses 8250 square kilometers of pristine wilderness and supports the most diverse habitat and animal populations in Botswana. Located in the eastern sector of the Okavango Delta, the Reserve is completely flat, with a network of numerous waterways between reed beds and islands of mixed woodland.

Moremi is Big Game country with a wide variety of species represented.

The re-emergence of the Wild Dog is of great interest to conservationists.
