Moremi has in the past suffered the ravages of a rinderpest epidemic in the last century, overgrazing by indigenous pastoral farmers up until the 1940's and saw uncontrolled hunting until the early 1960's.
Two and a half decades after proclamation as a reserve by Chief Moremi's family, the reserve is now one of the most scenic and varied game parks in Africa with prolific populations of wildlife and birds.
Today, Moremi covers almost a third of the entire Okavango Delta - a diverse habitat where the desert and delta meet, comprising forests, lagoons, floodplains, pans and woodlands.
Moremi contains the full spectrum of game and birdlife found in the Okavango and is the premier safari attraction in the Delta. The Delta is renowned for its mokoro trails.
