Maun to Okavango Delta, Botswana

Here we have the opportunity to partake in the overnight excursion into the Delta. We awake early to depart from Maun and travel north to arrive at the mokoro (traditional dug-out canoes) poler’s station. The Delta area is dotted with various local villages where many families live in a traditional way. Some of the villages are extremely isolated and can only be reached by means of mokoros. At the Mokoro station we are introduced to our ‘Polers” who navigate our canoes through the narrow waterways. After a few hours spent on the waterways we arrive at our mobile tented camp situation in the heart of the Okavango. Upon arrival you meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay. A brief introduction to the camp will show you your dome tent with twin beds and a bush en-suite bathroom – long drop toilet and a bucket shower. Unwind in your dome tent with a cold drink or feel free to take a paddle in the Delta in a canoe. Activities such as Mokoro trails and guided walks are available for those wanting to participate.
