The Okavango Delta – Local Style!

The Okavango Delta is a vast and intertwined network of deep lakes, windy rivers and serene fields of papyrus that is so large it can be seen from space. The Delta is the driving force of Southern Africa and its annual floods ensure that life is able to flourish in abundance.

A must for every trip to Botswana is a gentle cruise through the waterways in a traditional dugout Mokoro.

Hollowed from the trunk of a handpicked, hard wood tree, such as a Kigelia tree, the Mokoro is a relaxing and eco-friendly way to enjoy the peaceful swamps.

Where there is water, there is game.

The silence of the canoe allows you to get close to the animals, providing excellent photo opportunities, and a chance to experience Botswana at it’s very best.
