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, without the need for a chartered flight.
Some safari operators run 4x4 mobile camping trips from Maun. When arriving by chartered flight at one of the many airstrips in the delta, you will be picked up by 4x4 or mokoro (dugout canoe) to be transferred to your lodge.
If you’re on a road trip in Botswana, it is possible to drive from Chobe NP. The distance is about 600km/370mi and the driving time is at least seven hours.
