Okavango is the only river that starts in Angola and never reaches the sea, but ends up in the Okavango delta. A must to see. Abundance of bird and wild life. Most beautiful sunsets and what is better than a nice sundowner on this river....More

We spend 4 days in the park and did a mokoro boat trip in the far north-west of the park. Bring loads of water during the dry season. It was over 40 degrees. Great for bird watching!
