Getting to Moremi Game Reserve
Drive or Fly? How do I get to Moremi Game Reserve?
Getting to Moremi by Road
Driving to Moremi Game Reserve restricts visitors to the dry land area east of the reserve - the South Gate, North Gate, Khwai sections. By road, Moremi can be accessed via two main entrance gates - North Gate near Khwai River which is accessible from Chobe National Park, and South Gate just 90kms from Maun and 30kms from the North Gate. The road from Maun is tarred for 60kms, and then it is gravel road into the reserve. The roads inside Moremi gate reserve change with each season, being waterlogged during the rainy season and dry and sandy in the hot summer months. Driving from Maun to the South Gate of Moremi takes less than 2 hours. The other access point into Moremi is via the North Gate of the reserve en-route from Chobe National Park. Self-drivers do require a 4 x 4 vehicle into the Okavango Delta. To get to the rest of the delta, however, you will need to fly in.

Flying Into the Delta
Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta are most easily reached by light aircraft or helicopter transfer from Maun town and other airstrips/airports. Maun is the nearest hub to the delta and has an airport. There are regional fights into Maun from Johannesburg and Cape Town (South Africa), as well as local ones from Gaborone and Kasane, near Chobe.
Charter flights are the main option, and inter-camp air transfers are available when booking packages with sister camps in Botswana. Flights from Maun Airport into the delta take no more than 30 to 45 minutes. Almost all of the private safari camps have a nearby airstrip and charter companies have service to all of them. The transfers from the airstrips to the camps vary with location and season, and can be a combination of boat and game drive transfers.
