Moremi Game Reserve is literally the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and named after Chief Moremi of the BaTawana tribe. Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and includes permanent water with land and some islands such as Chiefs Island where several lodges are based. Moremi is known for its great diversity and good game viewing. The Moremi Game Reserve is home to nearly 500 species of bird and a vast array of other species of wildlife, including buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyaena, jackal, impala, and red lechwe. African Wild dog populations are doing well here and ongoing projects are in place helping to monitor their success.
