Full description

Botswana is well known for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas in Africa; almost 40% of its total land area is devoted to national parks and reserves, for the most part unfenced allowing the animals to roam free. Discover the Okavango Delta, where you can cruise through its waterways noiselessly in a mokoro (dugout canoe) and search for wildlife on game drives.

Itinerary & Accommodation

Itinerary & Accommodation

Day 1: arrive Okavango Delta

Arrive in the Okavango Delta (flight not included), where you will spend the next three nights. The Okavango Delta is an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with wildlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands. During winter in the Kalahari, when the sun has baked the earth bare and the desert is at its driest, water fills the Okavango transforming the floodplains into a Noah’s Ark of African wildlife. The diversity and number of animals and birds found here is staggering; 122 species of mammals, 71 species of fish, 444 species of birds, 64 species of reptiles and 1300 species of flowering plants. The delta’s watery heart is best discovered by mokoro (dugout canoe); these hand-hewn canoes are perfectly suited to the calm waters of the Okavango.

Days 2-4: discover the Okavango Delta

This holiday stays at a wet and dry camp in the Okavango Delta meaning you can explore the delta on day and night game drives, guided walking safaris and by mokoro (dugout canoe). Boating is also offered when water levels permit.

Hippo and crocodile are found in the deeper lagoons and big predators such as lion and leopard, as well as buffalo, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest move through the area. If you are lucky, some of the nocturnal animals such as serval, civet and genet may be seen on night drives. Birding enthusiasts will enjoy the regular sightings of Pels fishing owl, African fish eagle, giant eagle owl and white-backed vultures.
