Into Moremi Game Reserve
I am not an expert but I can say that it was a spectacular place with the flood plains, lagoons, mopane woodland and acacia forests. We stayed under canvas for three nights at a private HATAB site in the Xakanaka area of Moremi Game Reserve. The place is called MGR8 – Dead Tree and you can find the location of the camping site here.
Here we had a small pool of water just outside the camping site. This pool ad its resident Lechwe’s, crocs, birds and hippo’s plunging into the pool at dinner time. Elephants and Hyenas visiting during night when the Bell Frog choir was hard at work.
A little place of heaven I would say and one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.
