Day 7-11: Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is the largest inland river delta spanning roughly 6000 square miles. This labyrinth of lagoons, channels and islands is fed by the Okavango River, and is situated in the north western region of Botswana. The area is known for its isolation, serenity and pristine wilderness – regardless of the season, travellers are guaranteed to experience a wealth of wildlife, with the delta also home to around 400 bird species.
Narrow channels are most famously experienced in a Mokoro – a traditional dugout canoe navigated by a local guide. The Okavango can also be experienced in a motor boat, and on land travellers can explore the wilderness in open Land Rovers. Other activities include bird watching, tracking, guided nature walks and island exploration.
The Okavango Delta is surrounded by a number of abundant and diverse reserves, and is a short distance from Botswana’s famous Chobe National Park – home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa.
