- Moremi Game Reserve
When to Go
A year-round destination
The scale of Moremi’s wildlife means that the reserve can be considered a year-round destination for game viewing. But the landscape changes considerably with the seasons, each offering a different aspect to your experience.
The dry winter months from May to October see the highest water levels in Moremi, great for boating activities and game viewing. The floods are most extensive in mid-winter – June to August – and attract great numbers of animals. In terms of temperatures, it’s the mildest time of year with crisp-cold nights and a very low risk of malaria. September and October however are very hot.
The rainy summer months of December to April have advantages for keen naturalists. It’s the best time for bird watching and since it’s also the antelope birthing season – summer is always a good time for predators! It’s low water season though: boating & canoeing are usually only available at lodges set next to permanent water.
