Okavango Delta

Posted on 01/30/2014 in

The Okavango River 1430 km. long and the third longest river in Africa flows southeast across Namibia and the Caprivi Strip and cascades over Popa Falls to enter northwestern part of Botswana.

To get to your destination in the northern part of the Okavango Delta it is necessary to go by a small chartered aircraft which provides an interesting sightseeing flight to see the expanse of wetlands of the delta beneath. Our smooth flight over the delta was an hour long which delivered us to a an exquisite luxury lodge in the middle of nowhere to enjoy safaris throughout an area that is so unlike any other safari landscapes!

Visiting Okavango Delta is best in September/October when the weather is hot and the wildlife and birds congregate along the shores lined with papyrus and water lilies. A mokoro (dugout canoe) ride through the lagoons and channels is a pleasant and calm experience while you sit back and photograph as a skilled poler glides your mokoro through the shallow waters! 

The delta supports elephants, wildebeest, zebra, giraffes, antelope, hyena, lion, leopard and perhaps more hippos and crocs than you might wish to see!  This is also  a welcome area for birders as they are plentiful either in the bushes on land or along the shores of lagoons. 

To experience the most in the Okavango Delta it is best to choose a lodge that  offers both on land and water excursions.
