Among the reeds that grow in the water you can see a huge variety of birds during the Water Safari Camp Eagle Island Camp by Orient Express, outside the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana. With an area of ??approximately 3,900 square km, this reserve was created in the 1960s to protect the most wildlife-rich Okavango Delta. In 2008, the tourism fair in the prestigious Association of Travel and Tourism South Africa, Indaba, was voted as "the best wildlife reserve in Africa." It is the first reserve in Africa created by local residents. The people of Ngamiland Batawana, led by Mrs. Moremi, wife of late Chief Moremi III, concerned about the rapid extinction of wildlife on their land, mainly due to over-hunting, made the wise decision to proclaim Moremi as reserve in 1963, making her the only officially protected area of ??the Okavango Delta, acquiring a great scientific, environmental and preservation and as a result, is classified as one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa, and even possibly the world. The reserve has a split personality, one side has large areas of land elevations amid extensive marshes. Located in the central and eastern Okavango, Moremi includes language that encompasses the northeastern part of the Reserve, and Chief's Island, in the inner Delta, claiming to be one of the most diverse and rich ecosystems of Africa , resulting in a spectacular bird watching, over 400 species of birds, some migratory and other endangered species, and animal watching, including all carnivorous and herbivorous species in the region in their natural habitat. Black and White rhinos were recently reintroduced to the reserve, thereby making it a destination to find ¨ ¨ the big five. The most predominant vegatación ranging from Mopane forests and thorny bushes to dry savanna, grasslands, floodplains, riparian forests, lagoons, islands, wetlands and perennial streams. Moremi is a common destination for the camper without driver, and usually is usually combined with Chobe National Park to the northwest. Within Moremi attractions are: - The Third Bridge, located near the beautiful River Sekiri, surrounded by thick forests of papyrus, is a favorite, creating unforgettable memories of spectacular sunsets in the Okavango. It is literally the third wooden bridge if we come to the reservation by the south gate. It's a nice rustic bridge that saves a pond colored sandy tannins on the river, a great place to camp and make a picinic in their old camp, the most popular of booking. It is not advisable to swim in the area, because you can find crocodiles and hippos in the reeds. - Mboma Island, grassy island of 100 square kilometers is not really just an extension of the language of Moremi. It consists of a sandy meander 25 km, constituting a very nice optional excursion begins about 2 miles west of Third Bridge. - Xakanaxa Lediba, this gap has one of the largest colonies of herons in Africa, which makes it a paradise for bird watching. A part of herons, can spot marabouts, African jabiru storks, ibis different classes (tantalum African sacred ibis and glossy ibis) and egrets and abundant animals and fish. Some shelters category in the area, organized boat and mokoro circuits for their customers, they can join if they wish but if they are staying in shelters the price is quite high but always negotiable. The route between the North gate Xakanaxa Lagoon is one of the most scenic rides in the country. Worth making a stop at the lagoon Dombo Hippo, about 14 km southwest of the north gate, where hippos throng on the shore, we can see these wonderful animals from a high lookout. There are also two ponds Paradise troughs and as the name suggests are wonderful for observing animals. The only way to reach Moremi is in off-road safari vehicle or plane as there is no public transport.
