The Moremi Game Reserve, as opposed to the Moremi National Park, combines the dry parts with the permanent water, covering around 40% of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta. It is the first reserve established by African tribes on their land and one of the most stunning game reserves in all of Africa. The national park’s landscape consists of a combination of floodplains, and streams bordered by lilies, lagoons, and woodlands. The national park’s marshes and dry areas provide remarkable contrasts and are home to a wide variety of animals, including giraffes, cape wild dogs, buffalo, zebras, hippos, antelopes, impalas, rhinoceroses, the big five, and about 500 bird species.
