Covering 15,000 square km of water channels, islands and lagoons, the Okavango Delta is one of the most incredible wilderness sanctuaries in Africa. Each year, floodwaters from its northwestern neighbor Angola (more than 1,000km away) flows into the Delta and form this incredible wetland paradise within a desert; a truly unique and pristine ecosystem.
The dynamic flood levels attract a great variety of flora and fauna; providing excellent game viewing year round. The Delta is home to large numbers of wildlife; from predators like lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and wild dog to amazing birdlife such as the rare wattled crane to ungulates seen infrequently like sitatunga. Mokoro (dug out canoe) excursions offer an authentic, unobtrusive way to experience this wondrous wetland.
