About Okavango Delta

Situated like an oasis at the heart of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, the Okavango Delta is a
swampy inland estuary of winding channels and lagoons bursting with extravagant wildlife.


Adventures in the Okavango include exploring water channels by mokoro (traditional canoes),
traversing plains on foot or game viewing in a 4-wheel drive. Seasonally 6,000–15,000 km² of water
spreads across the area, filters into Lake Ngami. Never finding the ocean, this breathtaking
maze of water channels is also known as “the river that never finds the sea”.


The lush environment attracts an array of wildlife, birdlife and boasts a variety of unique plant life.
Private reserves and world-class lodges reached by charter plane, combined with excellent game
viewing and expert safari guides make a visit to the Delta a breath-taking journey of exploration
amidst intriguing sights of natural wonder.

Activities

Game Drives

Game Drives

Rest your feet while going deeper and farther than you ever thought possible for up-close game encounters. The game drives leave just before sunrise, ensuring that you get to see the entire bush wake up. The feeling of excitement and being at one with nature is indescribable.
Walking Safaris

Walking Safaris

Visitors may head out on foot with their armed ranger. The perspective of the bush is entirely different to that of a vehicle, and guests will learn to read the signs of the wild, and perhaps come into close contact with the different animal species on the reserve.

Game Viewing

Game Viewing

In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road or watching animals from the hide.

Fishing

Fishing

There are over 37 species of fish to be caught in the Sand River. Apart from the relaxing aspect of fishing, it is a glorious way to be at one with the bush, listening to the chirping of the various bird species or the sounds of Hippos in the distance.
Bush Walks

Night Safaris

Night Safaris

As the sun sets over the horizon, the African bush is awash with colours and sounds. The evening dawns and the nocturnal animals come out from their sleeping spots. Night time is when new adventures are to be had while on safari.
