Luxury Okavango Delta
Safari made for you
The iconic Botswana safari
The Okavango Delta is rightly known as one of the premier wildlife habitats in the world, home to an enormous density and diversity of wildlife.
There’s something quite magical about the Delta, with its amazing sunsets, the sound of the frogs at night, and the elephants wading through the reeds, all combining to make an unforgettable stay.
One of nature’s great spectacles, the flooding of the Delta, brings water from thousands of miles upstream on the Okavango river, arriving into Botswana in the dry season. Huge herds of animals flock to take advantage of the ready supply of water and nutrients, and their predators follow.
What’s more, they’ve had the good sense to allow just a few camps in the Delta, meaning you’re unlikely to see others during your game drives, adding to the feeling of a true wilderness.
The Okavango Delta is celebrated for its water safari activities. From zooming through the waterways on a powerboat to drifting along in a mokoro, your guide will reveal the secrets of the Delta, while you enjoy seeing tiny frogs and beautiful birdlife, from the lilac breasted roller to the larger waterbirds such as herons, storks and if you’re lucky, the Pel’s Fishing owl.

When to visit
June through to October are the best game viewing months as the climate is very dry and the water begins to recede, making the animals congregate in smaller areas. However, the temperature during October can be very hot.
