Wide waterways fringed with stripes of sturdy reeds, lagoons dotted with lily pads and wetlands that positively shimmer in the beaming African sun, the Okavango Delta is the continent’s unrivalled king of safari. In the heart of the semi-arid Kalahari Desert, this area of mirage-like beauty is anything but dry. The Okavango River, starting in the sandy highlands of Angola, fans out into Botswana drawing an exciting array of creatures to its emerald swamps and crystal-clear lagoons. On a game drive, you’ll have the chance spot hippos in great numbers wallowing in the shallows or crocodiles peeping out of the watery surface as well as ear-flapping elephants, galloping giraffe and the glossy sable antelope.
In a land where nature flourishes, the safaris are as diverse as the animals you’re likely to encounter. One moment you’ll be scouring the wildlife-rich rivers from a mokoro canoe. Next you’ll be galloping on horseback alongside waterhogs on the river’s edge or treading softly through the mopane forests alive with the chatter of exotic birds.
Navigate one of the greatest wildlife destinations on the planet with first-hand knowledge from our experienced experts who’ll help you reap the rewards of the Okavango’s vast wildlife riches.
