An absolutely amazing Africa Travel Destination worth while travelling to. Using someone local may give you the additional experience of a lifetime journey.

There is so much game to see in the delta. For a very good overview, a flight would give you the best coverage. If you fly into a lodge, the planes only fly about 1500ft above the surface and you can easily spot game.

What you see at this time of the year in Chobe river front NP, and Chobe got more Elephants in the world about 98 000, this what makes me to like camping safaris in these areas

Travelled into the Delta by Mokoro which is like a canoe which is paddled by someone standing in the back. We camped out and in the late afternoon each day went in search of the animals. It was very hot each day and there was not much to do until the day cooled down. Amazing experience.

We visited the Okavango Delta with a Nomad overland tour. We flew to the Delta from Maun to the Fallen Baobab camp. It was incredible! The scenery from the short 45minute plane journey is beautiful. The safaris when we were in the Delta were absolutely brilliant. We saw so many animals... lions, a cheetah, buffalo, elephants, zebra, hippos, giraffes, crocodiles.... More

The delta is a special place that should be on your list for Botswana hotspots. In March we didn't see a lot of game, but the place itself is special. You can take a small engine plane flight, which is okay, but I recommending going in via canoe or kayak. Our group was transported to an island via modern mokoro... More

There is a good reason that the Okavango Delta is a world heritage site and one of the greatest wildlife destinations on the planet. It offers incredible game viewing and fishing and the abundance of wildlife is astounding. The protected status of the delta is also an important factor. I have seen areas in Zambia that can challenge the physical... More

Felt so lucky to have the opportunity to be there. Saw so much from land and from water--birds, lions, cheetahs, elephants, ostriches. and the geography and natural beauty of the delta was just incredible.
