Okavango Tours

Okavango Delta

okavango riverTumbling out of the Angolan highlands two rivers converge to form the Okavango river, which spills itself onto the great sea of sand that is Botswana’s Kalahari Desert. An average of 10 million cubic metres of water annually floods 15,000 sq km of Kalahari, forming the world-famous Okavango Delta, largest inland delta in the world.

The contrast of desert and wetland is what makes the Okavango unique, and fosters the bewildering variety of life that it supports. Dry land and wetland species cohabit, creating unique and startling associations of plants, amphibians, birds, mammals and reptiles. Strategically located on palm-studded islands and dry-land tongues, an eclectic selection of safari camps and lodges welcome visitors from the all over the world.


Activities vary from camp to camp, but include guided walking, motor boating, dug-out canoeing (the mokoro is the traditional water-craft of the Okavango) and game driving in custom-built vehicles.


The towns of Maun and Kasane are the gateways to the Okavango, and each is served by international scheduled flights. Light aircraft will transfer you to and between lodges and camps on your safari, and deliver you back to your outbound flight.
