Okavango Delta

Okavango Delta

Okavango Delta

There is no place on Earth like the Okavango Delta. A phrase often overused, but in this case we mean it. This largest inland delta is one of the world’s last truly unspoiled wildlife areas with beautiful landscapes and a plethora of animals.
OVERVIEW

When you think of inland deltas, you might think of container ships, diverted rivers and lots of concrete. Thankfully, this is not the case with the largest of them all: the Okavango Delta in Botswana is untouched. Seasonal rains from the Angola highlands lead to floodings from March to June and turn vast arid plains into a wildlife wonderland. You can literally feel the energy surrounding you, an awakening of  senses, the beginning of a new cycle.

The whole area is divided into private concessions and the Moremi Game Reserve, which forms the heart of the delta. The landscape is characterized by waterways, tall lush grass, the occasional small forest and towering palm trees. While on safari in this area, most activities are water based, cruising through the channels in a mokoro (traditional dugout canoes) being the most famous one. Be prepared to watch elephants, hippos, lions, Lechwe antelope and much more from water level in pure silence.

Botswana is not just a powerhouse when it comes to wildlife, but also ranks high when it comes to top luxury accommodation. Chief’s Island, one of the largest sand islands in the centre of Moremi Game Reserve, is a hotspot for some of the most beautiful and secluded lodges in Africa.
