Day 3: Okavango Delta, Botswana

Today we are in the land of the River People, meaning that we will travel through this region by means of boat and mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) that carry us deep into the heart of the Okavango Delta. Our primary mode of transportation, mokoros, are incredibly crafted for use in the narrow water channels of the Delta and permit us to journey further into the Okavango than if we were to utilise any other form of transport. Mokoros can carry up to three people, with the driver being the third who stands on the edge of the canoe and ‘poles’ us through the snaking waterways. This is the most spectacular way to view this stunning region. Later in the day we head back to camp for yet another evening spent near the Okavango waters.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation:  Camping

Game drives inside the Park give us the chance to observe massive elephant herds and other big game up close. There is also the chance to have a close-up encounter with large African predators here. We then unwind over lunch at camp before embarking on a river boat cruise that carries us back into the Park. From the boat we will be treated to magnificent views of abundant wildlife that wander along the riverbanks and swim in the sparkling waters on which we glide.

Crocodiles and hippos are plentiful in the Chobe River and on the riverbanks you can usually spot a large variety of antelope and game such as elephant, buffalo and Big Cats who have come down to the river for an evening drink. The Chobe River offers a wide range of habitats for birdlife, providing amazing opportunities to spot some of these magnificent creatures.
