The Okavango Delta in northern Botswana (near Maun) incorporates the Moremi Game Reserve and is a unique wildlife paradise – one of the finest in the world making an Okavango Delta Safari one of the best safari experiences available. It is also one of the largest inland river deltas in the world. On an Okavango Delta Safari you’ll discover an unsurpassed natural environment is a maze of waterways, islands and reed banks creating a perfect habitat for lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, giraffe, hyena, wild dog, kudu, impala, roan, zebra, lechwe, hippo and crocodile, amongst others. There are approx. 440 bird species in the delta and fish species are also abundant, including tiger fish, sharp-toothed catfish, barbell and bream, some of which are available for fishing on an Okavango Delta safari.

On an Okavango Delta safari you’ll travel through the swamps and surrounding areas and Okavango Delta safaris are generally done by open 4×4 game viewing vehicle or a peaceful meander in a ‘Mokoro’, a flat-bottomed dugout canoe.

The Delta is hot throughout the year with temperatures ranging from approx. 34°C in January to 24°C in July. Rainfall averages 525 mm annually, but varies greatly from year to year. Water levels and flooding reach a maximum between March and July, after rains at the source and the usual 15 000 km2 can expand to approximately 22 000 km2 in high-rainfall years.  An Okavango Delta Safari is intimate and profound and there are several lodges from basic to luxury scattered throughout the Delta, each with their own piece of land to explore.
