The Okavango Delta

Undisputedly the most visited nature reserve in Botswana

The Okavango Delta

On safari in the Okavango

The world-famous Okavango Delta is one of africa's most fascinating and wildly rich areas. A labyrinth of lagoons covered with water lilies, palm-tree islets, bird-rich marshes and meandering waterways; forming an oasis for wildlife. The marshlands are inhabited by buffalo, warthogs, zebras, wildebeest, red lechwes and thousands of waterfowl. In the heart of the Okavango Delta lies Chiefs' Island, one of the largest islands. It is one of the most fertile islands, due to the annual supply of water, which means that you are guaranteed to see a lot of wildlife here on the open grasslands and under the Marula trees and Ilala palm trees.

Per mokoro by the delta

The flight over the Okavango Delta is breathtakingly beautiful, from the charter plane you can see herds running wild, elephants bathing in one of the many waterways and lechwes jumping through the water. During your stay in the delta, you will meet your guide to what activities you will do: you can explore the delta in mokoros (traditional canoes/hollowed-out tree trunks), by motorboat or take a walking safari under the guidance of a professional guide and scout. Classic safaris in an open vehicle are also possible (if the water level permits).
