Moremi National Park

Mostly described as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa, Moremi National Park is a mixture of lagoons, floodplains and mopane woodland and acacia forests in Botswana. Its incredible diversity of plant and animal life has made Moremi famous.

Fauna and Flora of Moremi National Park

There is a wide variety of wildlife in the park (an estimated 200 000), such as antelopes, lion, leopard, cheetah, crocodiles, kudu, rhinoceros, zebra, not to mention over 400 species of birds, including the African Fish Eagle. The animals migrate to lusher pastures in Summer, and then return with the rains in the Winter months.

The Delta is a sandy and wet plain, and as a result there is quite a diversity of vegetation in the area, namelyhardweld, sandveld and Okavango deltaveld. Hardweld vegetation is mostly your woody plants, while Sandveldconsists of large expanses of grasses. Okavango deltaveld has a combination of both grasses and woody plants. Hence one has a wide variety of fauna that thrives on this diverse vegetation.

In the swamp areas you will find lots of trees such as mopane, baobab, acacia, camel thorn, marula,  papyrus and sycamore fig trees. Beautiful water lilies and aquatic plants also grow in the swamp area, providing colour and fantastic photographs.
