Moremi Game Reserve - Rainy Season

Lioneses Resting With Carcass - Paradise Pools, Moremi



Elephant Enjoying Mud Bath



Early January brought some friends from Canada for a visit to Maun. One of the things we did was a mobile safari with Shylock Raborokwe, into Moremi Game Reserve. The video above shows a huge male elephant enjoying a very wet mudhole. We saw pleny of game - hippos, kudu, impala, wildabeasts, sable, dudiker, crocs, saddlebacked storks, spur winged geese, lions....


Moremi is very wet this year. Northern Botswana is having a heavy rainy season - most places already have over 300mm and some are over 400mm. With 6 to 8 weeks still to go for prime rain times, it could be well above our average rain fall of 460mm.

We had a trip there for 2 nights. Actually we were able to access dry land and water wildlife very easily. The camp had frequent guests like crocodile,leopard etc. And hippos visited every night.
