The Okavango Delta is a piece of African paradise and offers nothing but wide open spaces to set your travel imagination free. Pack your camera because the landscape of the Okavango Delta is picture perfect and unobstructed. What’s there to do in this area? Everything an avid explorer could dream of.
You can travel the entire globe and realise that there are few places as untouched and pure as the Okavango Delta. It will always be this way as the area is a World Heritage Site and is protected by the Moremi Game Reserve as well as various private concessions.
What animals will you see? The Okavango Delta is the home to lion, buffalo, elephant,zebra, hippo, giraffe, leopard and wild dogs. With so much wildlife, it offers visitors the perfect chance for game viewing.
The Okavango Delta floods seasonally and June until August is the high water season which makes it perfect for boat and canoe safaris. With all the water, it also draws the wildlife into the area. The climate is mild at this time of year, making it the ideal time to go on safari.
The classic mokoro trip down the delta is a must, and exploring this area at a slow pace from the water is truly the way to take in all the sights and sounds and allows photographers thousands of photo opportunities. If you’d like a bit more of a pace, motorized boat trips are the way to go. In fact, the Okavango Delta can be traversed by any means including guided game drives and bush walks.
