Okavango Delta Safari

It doesn't take long for the traveller on an Okavango Delta Safari to realise why this almost mythical destination has earned itself such a reputation.

Lying at the heart of the Kalahari Desert is an extraordinary natural phenomenon: an enormous freshwater wetland, brimming with wildlife and heart-breaking scenery.

The Okavango Delta is thinly populated, hard to access and has virtually no infrastructure. That's a good thing: you'll certainly be assured of a wilderness experience but don't think for a minute that you'll have to rough it.

The good news is that the Okavango Delta is home to some of southern Africa's greatest lodges, both in terms of sheer, unadulterated luxury and matchless game viewing. Look at our range of selected accommodation in the Okavango Delta to find the lodges that meet your requirements or just contact us and we'll recommend the best accommodation for you.

And there's plenty of adventure on an Okavango Delta Safari too: experience the wonders of the Okavango Delta on foot, by air or by motor boat; be guided by expert local guides through the bewildering maze of back waters on a canoe or patrol the fringes on a 4X4 game drive.

An Okavango Delta Safari is usually part of a bigger itinerary taking in other areas of Botswana such as the peerless Chobe National Park or African masterpieces such as Victoria Falls or the Kruger National Park. Browse through our Okavango Delta tours or simply tell us what you want to see and experience and we'll put together the perfect package for you.

Experts Reviews

The Okavango Delta in Botswana is the world’s largest inland delta and one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas in Africa. The best time for game viewing in the delta is between May and October as the animal life is concentrated in the seasonally flooded areas. Activities here include mokoro trips (a dug-out canoe), boat cruises, 4x4 game drives and game walks, but please keep in mind that many lodges do not offer all these activities so you might have to combine ‘water’ and ‘land’ lodges to get the full experience.
