Botswana - Okavango Delta 2

Okavango Delta - Safaris, Wildlife & Camps

The Okavango Delta in Botswana with its vast and diverse wildlife species is one of the premium destinations in the world for a dynamic safari experience and offers a truly unique wilderness safari in Africa.

The Delta forms part of the Kalahari Basin, situated at the southern periphery of the Great Rift Valley, and covers an area of 22,000 square kilometres. Although the periphery is semi-arid, the Okavango Delta itself is a patchwork of cool clear streams, lagoons, floodplains and forested islands. In the dry winter season vast numbers of wildlife flock to where the floodwaters infiltrate the delta, providing one of the world’s most spectacular sights.

The Okavango Delta is one of the world's most diverse wildlife habitats with over 200,000 large mammals, 400 bird species and 70 species of fish. It's not surprising then that the Delta is widely regarded as one of the premium destinations for a dynamic safari experience.

The world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve is known as the 'predator capital of Africa' and is also home to large herds of elephant and buffalo. Famed for its big cat and bird population, the delta is a peaceful haven where animals have been protected for decades, watch giraffe and other plains game march across the savannah. You might even catch a glimpse of rare wild dogs stalking the plains.
