The easiest way to visit the Okavango Delta is by charter plane from Maun Airport (MUB). This is also the country’s most common point of entry for people visiting this part of Botswana. The eastern part of the Delta can also be accessed directly from Maun by 4x4. The drive usually takes 3 to 4 hours*.

If you’re on a road trip in Botswana, it is possible to drive from Chobe National Park. The distance is about 600km/370mi and the driving time is at least 7 hours.*

It is customary for your tour operator to take care of charter-flight bookings between parks as part of your tour package. There are no scheduled flights to the Okavango Delta.

*Driving times are only a rough indication. You should always consider the possibility of significant delays.
