Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering an area of over 17,000 square km and is referred to as the largest inland delta in the world. Surrounded by a Kalahari sand basin the Okavango River that floods yearly brings a life line to the Kalahari basin and its wildlife. It is clearly not a swamp, the clear placid moving waters forms channels, lakes, lagoons and flow lines into the Kalahari Basin.  Papyrus plants that acts as filters and riverine forests guiding its flow, the Okavango delta forms a perfect eco system.

The Okavango Delta offers the perfect safari experience with a combination of mobile land and water safaris. The wildlife regions are divided in concessions and one can either do a ground level safari with a camping option or treat you to a more exclusive private small lodge experience. These lodges are built on islands, main lands and are sometimes only reachable by plane or boat due to the annual flooding of the Okavango Delta.
