Moremi Game Reserve
Moremi game reserve was named after the late chief Moremi the lll of the Batawana tribe of Ngamiland. It is one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa, situated in the central and eastern areas of the Okavango. It is known for its best game viewing and bird watching, including all herbivore and carnivores species in the region and over 460 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered. Both black and white Rhino have been recently re introduced now making the reserve a big five destination. Moremi is very popular for the self –drive camper and often combined with Chobe National park to the north east. Third bridge campsite is situated near the pretty Sekiri river, flanked with thick stands of papyrus is a favourite creating lasting memories of pleasant Okavango sun set.

Chobe National Park
Chobe national park is the second largest park in the country, second from Central Kalahari Game reserve, it is known by being occupied by hundreds of elephants and Cape buffalo as some of the main roads like Serondela may become impossible to pass, scores of family herds cross the main road to make their way to the river to drink. The Chobe river front, the Ngwezumba pans, Savute and Linyanti. On a river cruise you will experience the park and the animals from another side of the park. You will come across with hippos, crocodiles, and a mind-boggling array of water birds. Over 460 bird species have been recorded in the park, making it one of Africa's premier venues for bird safaris. Common species to be seen include ibis Egyptian geese, the ubiquitous cormorant and darters, spur-winged Geese,pel's fishing owl, carmine bee-eaters, most members of the king fisher family all the rollers, the unmistakable fish eagle and many members of the stork family.

Ngwenzumba Pans
The Ngwenzumba pans lie 70 km south of the Chobe River and comprise of a large complex of clay pans surrounded by mophane wood-land and grass plains. During the raining season, the plains fill with water then attracting wildlife that moves away from the permanent water sources of the Linyanti and Chobe Rivers.

Linyanti
Game viewing can be very excellent at the permanent water of Linyanti, during winter time/months. The area that falls within the Chobe national park which has a public campsite is sandwiched between photographic concessions to the west and to the east.

Savute
At the interior of the park, Savute boasts most of the Chobe species except for water-loving antelope. It is best known for its predators particularly lions, cheetah and hyena of which there are large resident populations. The Savute channel from Linyanti River for about 100 km, carry water away from the river and releasing it into a vast swampland called the Savute marsh and further south onto the Mababe depression which is also fed by Ngwenzumba River from the north east. The Mababe immense and flat and fringed by thickets of trees was once the part of Makgadikgadi super lake. When filled with water it becomes the venue for thousands of migratory birds and animals, particularly large herds of zebra.

Geographically Savute is an area of many curiosities. One of its mysteries is the Savute channel itself which has over the past 100 years inexplicably dried up and recommenced its flows several times. This irregular water flows explains the numerous dead trees that line the channel, for they have germinated and grown when the channel was dry and drowned when the channel flowed again.

Makgadikgadi National Park
The Makgadikgadi covers an area of 12000 Sq kms, part of the Kalahari basin, yet unique to it, is one of the largest salt pans in the world. Most of the year, this desolate area remains waterless and extremely arid and large mammals is thus absent. But during and following years of good rains the two largest pans –Sowa to the east and Ntwetwe to the west flood attracting wildlife such as zebra and wildebeest on the grassy plains and most spectacularly flamingos, and at Sowa and Nata Sanctuary. Flamingo numbers can run into tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands and the spectacle can be completely over whelming. Other species are Gemsbok,eland,and red hartebeest as well as kudu, bush buck,duicker,giraffe,springbok,steenbok and even elephants with all the accompany predators, as well as the rare brown hyena.

Nxai Pan National Park
Nxai pan national park covers the area of 2100 sq kms, this large pan is grassed and scattered with islands of acacia trees and smaller pans that fill with water during raining season –thus providing rich resources for wild life. Wildlife viewing is seasonal and depends on if and when the rains come and when animals migrate. There are several artificial watering points. If the rains have been good, December to April is the best time to visit. Common species to be sighted are zebras, wildebeest, springbok, Impala, gemsbok, hartebeest, giraffe, lion, cheetah, wild dogs, brown hyena, bate eared fox and sometimes elephants and buffalos.

Central Kalahari Game reserve (C.K.G.R)
The central Kalahari game reserve (C.K.G.R) is the largest game reserve in Southern Africa and the second wildlife reserve in the world, encompassing 52 800 sq kms. During and shortly after summer rains the flat grass land of the reserves northern reaches teem with wildlife which gather at the best grazing areas, these include large herds of springbok, and gemsbok as well as wildebeest,hartebeest,eland and giraffe.C.K.G.R. Is unique in that, it was originally established in 1980s and 1990s, both self-drive and organized tours were allowed in controlled numbers. Deception valley is one of the highlights, principally because of the dense concentrations of herbivores its sweet grass attract during and after raining season, and of course the accompanying predators. It is also the most travelled area of the reserve, with a number of public campsites and proximity to the eastern Mats were gate. The other two gates are completely at the other side of the reserve, at Xade and Tau where public campsites are also available. The other worth area to drive to are Sunday and Leopard Pans, north Deception valley, Passage valley and Piper Pan further south.
