Luxury safaris in The Okavango Delta
The Iconic Botswana Safari
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.
We know the Delta very well, and can recommend the best combination of lodges for you, depending on your tastes and interests (and the time of year that you are travelling).
