Where Next

The heart of a classic safari itinerary

The Okavango Delta’s location in Botswana puts it at the heart of a classic safari itinerary. Served by logistics hub Maun airport, the delta is a destination usually combined with Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, giving travellers a taste of Botswana’s most famous wildlife hotspots. The Okavango Delta also lies within a short hop of the Kalahari, allowing for a fascinating contrast between permanent wetlands and arid grasslands, and it’s also easy to add on destinations further afield such as Victoria Falls and South Africa – ask us how.

Chobe National Park

Botswana’s heavyweight wildlife destination rarely disappoints, especially during the long dry season when great herds are concentrated at the Chobe River. It’s worth staying a couple of nights in the Savuti area too. Savuti is the wild heart of Chobe, famous for its giant bull elephants & predators as well as a summer zebra migration.

Victoria Falls

Fly to ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ from the Okavango Delta’s Maun airport or make your way there via a safari itinerary that includes Moremi & Chobe. Victoria Falls is Africa’s adventure capital & home to everything from sunset cruises & micro-light flights to bungee jumping, white-water rafting & elephant-back safaris.

Cape Town

How many cities around the world could you expect to find mountain hiking, penguin colonies, shark-cage diving, whale watching & wine tasting? It’s all here in the Mother City, home to the widest range of accommodation & a great base from which to discover the Cape Winelands & traveller-friendly Garden Route.

THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO

1. Sit Back in a Mokoro

Steered by a local guide, your flat-bottomed mokoro (canoe) takes you into the delta’s shallow wetlands – great for birding & photography. Contact us for more info about lodges and high water seasons.

2. Walk the Delta

Guided nature walks on the islands of the Okavango Delta are a highlight for many visitors – you’ll learn about medicinal trees, look for rare birds, identify animal tracks & get to see some animals.

3. Cruise the River

Swop an afternoon game drive for a motor boat safari, a great way to discover the delta. You’ll spot hippos & crocodiles plus dozens of different birds & finish the day at the best sunset spots.

4. Get Romantic

Breathtaking scenery, stunning sunsets plus super-exclusive accommodation: the Okavango Delta is one of the most romantic destinations in Africa. Honeymooners can expect private dining, spa pampering & plenty of romantic surprises.

5. Go Bird Watching

Home to around 500 recorded bird species, the Okavango Delta is a birder’s paradise, especially in the summer when migrant birds arrive. Ask for a specialist bird guide & try for the region’s ‘mega-tick’ – the ever-elusive Pel’s Fishing-Owl.

6. Go on a Game Drive

Led by a professional guide, 4X4 game drives give you the best chances of seeing big game in the drier areas of the delta. Several lodges have a great reputation for vehicle-based game viewing; private reserves offer night drives & off-road driving too – ask us for the best ones.

7. Search for Wild Dogs

The delta’s grassy floodplains are packed with antelope, making them classic hunting territory for the highly endangered wild dog, one of the most sought-after sightings on an African safari. Head for the drier margins of the delta or ask us for recommendations.

8. Drop a Line Overboard

Whether you are a keen angler or just fancy trying your luck, many lodges offer fishing as an activity. It’s mostly catch-&-release but you can fish for your supper too. Serious fishermen will want to experience the delta’s infamous catfish run – get more info.
