The Okavango Delta in northwest Botswana is unique. The annual flood of fresh water that gathers in the Okavango Delta from Angola’s western highlands flows inland and slowly spreads for more than 15,000 sq km over the Kalahari desert forming a maze of lagoons and channels. The thousands of islands that are formed sustain several diverse ecosystems, also home to vast numbers of game species and a myriad of birds, while the crystal clear waters support a varied array of aquatic life.
The Okavango Delta attracts large numbers of wildlife and birdlife – from the rare (sitatunga and wild dog) to the more familiar (various antelope, elephant, giraffe). The large number of antelope sustains a healthy population of predators. The Okavango Delta is at its most impressive between May and October. The height of the flood occurs in August. The Accommodation in the Okavango ranges from luxury lodges to tented camps.
Most of the accommodation in the Okavango Delta are reached by light aircraft from Maun or Kasane. This provides for a spectacular scenic flight over the Okavango Delta and offers the visitor a rare opportunity to spot game from the air and to get a bird’s eye view of this beautiful wilderness area. Accommodation is in upmarket lodges situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta.
