Okavango Delta Activities

The Okavango Delta is one of the most exclusive wilderness destinations in the world. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the backdrop to wild Africa's grand spectacle, presenting unparalleled wilderness experiences in a serene inland delta unlike anywhere else on Earth. Visitors traverse the Delta's meandering waterways, passing palm- and papyrus-fringed islands, thick woodland, resplendent with lush vegetation, and teeming with rich wildlife. Explore the plains of the Delta in the morning and afternoon by open 4x4 vehicle accompanied by an expert guide (depending on water levels). As the channels in the Delta flood, they are turned into a labyrinth of lily-filled lagoons and streams allowing you to glide through these canals in a mokoro (local dugout canoes), seasonal activity. This tranquil activity allows you to get very close to the biggest of game and to see the world from a totally different angle. Walk along ancient wildlife paths, focus on the intricacies of the bush and learn more about the insects, birds, trees and bees. A walking safari is about seeing smaller things you may miss on a game vehicle and appreciate the African bush from a different perspective. Explore the Okavango Delta’s intricate network of winding channels and glassy lagoons by motorboat (seasonal). This unique viewpoint from the boat offers great sightings of wildlife coming to the water’s edge and the many bird species. Enjoy catch-and-release fishing (seasonal) in the Okavango Delta, renowned as one of Africa’s top fishing destinations and home to 71 fish species including tiger fish, tilapia and various species of catfish. Experience the magnificent Okavango Delta by helicopter. Scenic flights offer a completely different experience, giving you the very best of the untamed wilderness and wildlife in widescreen. Note activities may vary between lodge accommodation.
