The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world, a unique and beautiful wetland wilderness teeming with wildlife. It’s home to some of the world’s most endangered species, and you’ll see reveal hippos, warthogs, elephants and possibly even the rare red lechwe living in the swampy habitat. The mesmerising area of diverse beauty is particularly rich in bird life, including several colourful species of kingfisher and ibis.
On our Okavango Delta tours you’ll travel through the narrow, reed-lined channels in a mokoro (dugout canoe); gliding along with just the swish of passing undergrowth and the gentle splash of water to break the silence is a slice of heaven on Earth. Just make sure you pack your camera.

An amazing, once in a lifetime experience which has left me humbled, speechless and overwhelmed in equal measure. From the landscapes of Brandberg to the wildlife and waterways of the delta and everything in between this truly is a trip to treasure I have fallen in love with both countries and will be back!
A fabulous trip, very well organised to include many different areas. We saw 4 of the Big 5, but not the elusive leopard! Our guide Adonia was very knowledgeable about every aspect of these beautiful countries, and together with Sifiso our driver we learned and saw a lot. Both were very patient and kind and went out of their way to make the holiday special, always with a great sense of humour. Quite a tough going trip with early starts and a couple of long drives but well worth it.
A very enjoyable trip, during which we saw an abundance of wildlife including 4 of the Big 5. Our group leader Adonia, and our driver Sifiso were great. They were very knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna we saw. There were a couple of very long, but unavoidable, drives. However, we were still wildlife spotting during these and Adonia used this time to talk about the history and culture of both Botwana and Zimbabwe. Our trip into the Okavango Delta was quite different from the rest of the trip but very enjoyable. Listening to the sounds of the wild animals at night was an experience never to be forgotten. On the full day in the delta there was a lot of downtime between the early morning game walk and the late afternoon Mokoro trip. Another game walk during the day would have been a good idea. Special thanks to Adonia and Sifiso for their patience, humour and thoughtfulness.
