Nowhere on earth is quite like the Okavango Delta, a vast wetland whose animal life has especially adapted and evolved over the years to live here. The Okavango River flows down from Angola into the Kalahari Desert, where it creates the world's largest inland delta.
Rivers and swamps teem with brightly coloured bird life, and are home to large numbers of hippo and crocodiles. About the size of France but with a population of only 1.3 million, the rugged landscape of Botswana, often referred to as the last true wilderness, can capture the soul of the true adventurer.
The best way to see the Okavango is to spend a couple of nights in a water-based camp and 2 nights in a land-based camp. Accommodation is in luxury camps, the smallest of which accommodates just 6 guests, the largest around 20. Apart from the excellent game viewing, camps offer good wholesome food and a very comfortable standard of accommodation.
Guests at water camps experience the magic of peaceful lagoons, fast flowing channels, aquatic plant life and a variety of water-adapted animals. Time is spent travelling across flood plains and clear waterways, relaxing in mokoro (dug out canoe).
The area has an excellent reputation for game viewing in the Okavango Delta and Moremi Wildlife Reserve. In the land-based camp game drives are in 4-wheel drive vehicles, offering the opportunity to view Africa's big game including buffalo, elephant and lion. The area is also remowned for its wild dog population.
