Mostly only accessible by boat or aircraft. One of the jewels of the world. Nobody should miss this great place if they are in southern Africa.

The flood waters of the Delta cover 35,000 square kilometers, creating permanent lagoons lakes and channels even in the dry season. This oasis has some of the highest concentration of wildlife and an astounding number of bird species.

although it is very busy with tourists in private cars, the Delta is still quite and beautiful. Saw as many animals both trips.

I loved The mokoro Activity- a dug out canoe which is 'poled' along by a Guide is the most evocative way of exploring the numerous waterways of the delta.

This was opposite in scenery to the Kalahari, lots of water and plants, again remote from other tourists. The wild life was totally amazing and combining the Kalahari and Okavango as my two destinations I feel I had two totally different but amazing experiences of safaris.

Luxury safaris here are famous for being some of the most exclusive and private in the world.
Overall rating

This vast wetland attracts much game due to its lush vegetation and permanent water supplies – luxury safaris here are famous for being some of the most exclusive and private in the world, and the game viewing never disappoints. Due to the flat nature of the Delta the sunrises and sunsets are particularly colourful, which makes for excellent photographic opportunities when you do find your herd of zebra.

I was impressed by stunning nature far away from the civilisation.

My accommondation was a tent, that was build on a high platform. On that platform was a toilet and a shower with no roof. The valuables were stored in a box that was locked.
The excursions were very exciting, because we used a traditonal boat made of wood to reach our destination. I never walked by foot in an area, where animals like elephants, lions and leopards are living.
In the night, elephants and hippos walked through our camp. Summarized the three days were very exciting.

A not-to-be-misses destination
Overall rating

The Okavango Delta was just one stop on a month long visit to Africa but it was the richest in terms of game viewing and overall safari experience. We encounter the rarely seen pangolin, lions galore (a pair on their "honeymoon"), amusing (and sometimes annoying) vervet monkeys, elephants, zebra, herds of antelope, and amazing birds; the iconic lilac-breasted roller among many others. It was July so bundling up for the early morning game drives was a must....by about 10 it warmed up enough to shed a few layers and enjoy the sun. Our camp was operated by Wilderness Safaris - the food was wonderful, the staff simply the best, and our guides shared not only their knowledge of the area but their love of the land as well. The sweet scent of what our guide called "savannah basil" filled the air as we traveled through the delta - an experience I will long remember.

We stayed at Pom Pom camp and although we did not see much on the 3 game drives during our 3 night stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride on the delta as well as the makoro experience.
