Okavango Delta

Few safari destinations will ever match the magic of the Okavango Delta. One of Africa’s iconic wildlife destinations, the Okavango Delta is an unspoilt water-wilderness, with abundant bird and wildlife.

Situated deep within the Kalahari Basin in northwest Botswana and surrounded by desert thirstland, the channels and wetlands of the Delta offer unforgettable beauty, remarkable tranquillity and an unparalled concentration of big game and wildlife.

Explore the islands, waterways and secret channels of the Delta, as they lace their way through papyrus swamps, shallow reedbeds and grassy floodplains. The sheer number of species in this still pristine part of the world is astounding, including 530 species of birds, 160 species of mammals, 155 species of reptiles, 35 species of amphibian, 85 species of fish and 1 500 species of plant!

The Delta is fed by the third-largest river in southern Africa, the Okavango – and its heart-stopping and intimate encounters with wildlife (including the Big 5) make it one of the most extraordinary places on the African continent.
