The Okavango forms the world’s largest non-coastal delta, and is found in remote north western Botswana. Its 6,200 square miles of lagoons, swamps, water channels and islands attract a great variety of wildlife and incredible diversity of birdlife. Stay at luxury lodges on idyllic islands and discover the delta on boat trips and in traditional dugout ‘mokoro’ canoes.

The Okavango is the largest inland delta system in the world. Located in the north-west of Botswana, the Okavango River flows in from the highlands of Angola and saturates, forming the 15,000 sq. km network of water channels, lagoons, swamps and islands.The delta is home to crocodile, red lechwe, sitatunga, elephant, wild dogs, buffalo, wattled crane as well as the other more common mammals and bird life.Birds are abundant and the best time is during the rainy season, Nov – April, as the migrant bird populations are returning and the plants are flowering and green.The best time for game viewing in the delta is during the May-October period, as the animal life is concentrated along the flooded areas and the vegetation has dried out
