Described as ‘the jewel of the Kalahari’, the Okavango Delta – a tranquil and isolated oasis set in the harsh and arid surroundings of Botswana’s bush and desert – is widely regarded as one of Africa’s best safari destinations. Bush walks and water-based activities - game viewing via a mokoro (dugout canoes).
"The Okavango Delta is an incredible experience .. make sure you add this magical destination to your bucket list of places to visit and revisit in Africa. The Okavango Delta offers one the opportunity to go on a river safari via motorboat and mokoro ( dugout canoe) bushwalking and 4x4 game drives. You can also fly over the Delta in a helicopter... what an extraordinary experience to view the magnificent Delta from above.
Our bush walk was amazing too we saw 2 male lions on foot and on the way back via motorboat to the lodge we watched a herd of elephant cross from one side of the island to the next ....all of this happening right in front of us. It was amazing to see how the elephant calves hold on to the elephants tail in front of them as they cross the deep Delta channels. The little ones are really good at swimming too. I will never ever forget this moment. I have witnessed countless moments of elephants swimming in dams and rivers ...however this was the first time I have ever seen elephants cross in the middle of the Okovango Delta and so close to us ....simply spectacular!
