From Consultancy for Tourism Related Sites Identification in the Okavango Delta Ramsar Site (ODRS) - Final Report
, by NRP for Tawana Land Board, March 2009:
... there is a strong likelihood that a negative image of the Moremi Game Reserve may impact on the marketability of the mid - high cost lodges operating in or on the boundaries of Moremi Game Reserve. The limited regulation of access to the three sectors in Moremi makes it nearly impossible to guarantee a marketable experience to higher cost market segments. It is therefore proposed and recommended that the broad medium and low density zonation in the Moremi Game Reserve Management Plan (DWNP, 2008) is refined based on the proposed zones in this report.
An example of this would be to confine self drive and general visitor access in the area east of North Gate to an area no further than 5 km from the North Gate. High and mid end lodges on the northern side of the Khwai River would then have exclusive access to the remaining network of roads in the 15 kms of the Khwai floodplain towards Mababe, in order to allow them to market their product internationally as 'superior'.
Not a bright future for self-driving people in Moremi Game Reserve, if these recommendations become true.
