Okavango Delta, Botswana
We head to the Okavango Delta today in an open 4×4 truck to the mokoro station – a natural wetland spreading over a massive portion of northern Botswana. The Okavango River rises farther to the north in Angola and flows south, dividing repeatedly after crossing into Botswana to create an intricate floodplain of channels that spreads out into a broad, flat inland delta – the only one of its kind in the world. Among the giant lily pads, tall grasses and labyrinthine channels, we explore today in search of hippo, crocodile, elephant and a wide variety of birdlife. We travel to our island camp in a Mokoro (dugout canoe) and explore the area on a walking safari. The Okavango is an extremely well-preserved area that makes camping among the bushes and rivers, whilst listening to the soothing sounds of the African night, a truly beautiful and unforgettable experience.
