Mokoro cruise

The mokoro is a common type of canoe used to get around in the shallow waters of the Thamalakane River. The guide stands in the back of mokoro and pushes it with the pole to give clients tranquillity. Traditionally, mokoros are made from dugout trunks of a large straight trees, like ebony, and sausage tree. It gives the occupants a view of the river and a feeling that they are actually floating ever so gently down the river.

Boat cruise

Wildlife viewing using motor-powered boat, this is done normally to see some certain flora and fauna which are hundred percent water loving and water dependent. Sometimes endangered species that cannot be seen through vehicles or flight like Sitatunga, in most cases, motor boats are used to transfer guests into the delta if not by flight or vehicles.

Location

This safari will take place in Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana. The rustic Third Bridge campsite, situated near the pretty Sekiri River, flanked with thick stands of papyrus, is a favorite, creating lasting memories of resplendent Okavango sunsets.

Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi Game Reserve is situated in the central and eastern areas of the Okavango, and includes the Moremi Tongue and chief’s island, boasting one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems on the continent. 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.

Contained within an area of approximately 3900 square kilometers, 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 terrain makes driving Moremi’s many loops and trails both delightful and, at times, totally inspiring.

This gem of a game reserve has garnered a number of important distinctions. In 2008, it was voted the ‘best game reserve in Africa’ by the prestigious African Travel and Tourism Association at South Africa’s premier tourism fair, Indaba.

It is the first reserve in Africa that was established by local residents. Concerned about the rapid depletion of wildlife in their ancestral lands due to uncontrolled hunting and cattle encroachment, the Batawana people of Ngamiland, under the leadership of the deceased Chief Moremi III’s wife, Mrs. Moremi, took the bold initiative to proclaim Moremi a game reserve in 1963.

It is the only officially protected area of the Okavango Delta, and as such holds tremendous scientific, environmental, and conservation importance. Undoubtedly, Moremi ranks as one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa, possibly in the world.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is a large low gradient alluvial fan or ‘Inland Delta’ located in north-western Botswana. The area includes permanent swamps which cover approximately 600,000 hectare along with up to 1.2 million hectare of seasonally flooded grassland.

The inscribed world heritage property encompasses an area of 2,023,590 hectare with a buffer zone of 2,286,630 hectare. The Okavango Delta is one of a very few large inland delta systems without an outlet to the sea, known as an endorheic delta, its waters drain instead into the desert sands of the Kalahari Basin. It is Africa’s third largest alluvial fan and the continent’s largest endorheic delta. Furthermore it is in a near pristine state being a largely untransformed wetland system. The biota has uniquely adapted their growth and reproductive behavior, particularly the flooded grassland biota, to be timed with the arrival of floodwater in the dry, winter season of Botswana.
