We collect you on the 26th July 2019 from your hotel or Lodge around Maun at 9am, and we drive 3 hours to Moremi Game Reserve where we check in and then proceed another 2 1/2 hours to Bodumatau ( a very special operators site next to a hippo filled lagoon). Moremi Game Reserve – Contained within an area of approximately 3900 km2, here land and Delta meet to create an exceedingly picturesque preserve of floodplains – either seasonally or perennially wet, waterways, lagoons, pools, pans, grasslands and riparian, riverine and mophane forests. This makes for spectacular game viewing and bird watching, including all major naturally occurring herbivore and carnivore species in the region, and over 400 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered. Both Black and White Rhino have recently been re-introduced, now making the reserve a ‘Big Five’ destination. It is the only Game Reserve inside the RAMSA listed Okavango Delta. Khwai Community Area, Next to Moremi Game Reserve Khwai concession is a community-run private reserve adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve, divided from it by the Khwai River. The river attracts high concentrations of thirsty wildlife. Riverine forest lines the wide water lily and papyrus covered floodplains around the Khwai River. A myriad of colourful birdlife is found in this watery habitat that is a breeding area for many species. Away from the river and plains is thick mophane woodland dotted with pans that attract many animal species and where we often spot wild dog.
We stay here for 3 nights. On the 29th July we have a last short early morning game drive before driving through Moremi and into the adjacent Khwai Community Concession. The Khwai Community is running this area and all fees paid here go into the local Community providing schools, scholarships, water pumps and more. There are two exclusive operator sites, both beautifully situated under large Leadwood tree’s and a third site near the Khwai River. All are well spaced from each other and under the shade of immense Acacia Tree’s. The game viewing is superb, as good as in Moremi, and in addition to the normal game drives we are allowed out of the vehicle (responsibly of course) can drive off road at the Guides discretion and can do limited walking. We stay here for 3 nights and will get to know this beautiful area well. Stunning scenery and lot’s of game.
On the 1st August 2019 we have a last short early morning game drive before a big cooked breakfast. We then drive 3 hours to Maun, in time at 2pm for the flights to Johannesburg.
