On the eastern side the Okavango Delta borders the Moremi Game Reserve, which allows travellers the great opportunity of staying right in the middle of the action. This region offers exceptional views of savannah game as well as the chance to look to the skies and beyond. Whilst floating along the lagoons in a traditional Makoro one may even spot a leopard.
