Okavango Delta Safari

Imagine a pure river bursting out of wild highlands and then meandering lazily through an African wilderness. Channelled by shuddering tectonic plates it finally spills out onto the sands of the Kalahari where it forms an intricate, thriving web of life.

The Okavango Delta is the largest freshwater wetland in Africa; in Botswana’s arid and unforgiving bush it’s an oasis where you’ll find one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa – and the beauty is that it is basically a year-round destination for safaris: check out our ‘When to Go to the Okavango Delta’ section for more information.

From the ground the Delta, also known as the Okavango Swamps, is a watery green labyrinth; from the air it is a horizon-stretching pattern of sparkling channels, quiet swamps, bustling islands and snaking game trails.

Experience an Okavango Delta dawn as the mist curls off the mirrored waters; glide downstream in a guided mokoro to look for birds and aquatic antelope; go on game drive safaris through the game-packed floodplains and woodlands that fringe the Delta and finish the day with a boat cruise, sipping a cool sundowner as the sun burns the sky.

Luxury safari lodges are tucked into remote corners of the Okavango Delta, each offering the traveller a chance to kick back in style. While it’s all raw and uncompromising nature out there, back at the lodge it’s gourmet cuisine, fine wines, exquisite accommodation and attentive service – perfect, as it happens, for a safari honeymoon or botswana luxury safari.

Local guides will share their expert knowledge of the Okavango with you, whether it is tracking a pride of lions on foot, searching for the elusive Pel’s Fishing-Owl or simply finding the perfect spot for a romantic sunset.
