About 25km from Maun, the tar road ends at Shorobe. A good gravel road leads you up to Buffalo Fence about 15 km on.
Travelling further north for about 35km, on a sandy but scenic road, where game can already be spotted, the southern entrance of Moremi Game Reserve is reached.
The Moremi Game Reserve is situated within the Okavango Delta, and offers a landscape of lagoons, winding waterways, reeded banks, Mopani and Knob thorn forests.
Cape buffalo, lion, elephant, zebra, giraffe and other animals live in the riverside forests, hippo laze in the shallow lagoons, while overhead vultures and eagles ride the thermals in search of a meal.
There are four public camping sites in Moremi, which must be booked for in advance. Entrance and camping fees are high compared to Southern African standards, which with the new booking system, ensures a low volume of visitors.
South Gate Campsite is situated at the Reserve entrance and is set amongst huge Mopani's.
