Botswana’s Okavango Delta is to many people the very best game-viewing region in the whole of Africa.
Home to Africa’s finest private parks, including the predator-rich Moremi Game Reserve, the Delta offers the widest diversity of safari activities, as well as the most exclusive safari experience on the continent.
The Okavango’s flood waters come from the highlands in Angola, with the main deluge hitting the north-west of the Delta usually in April and transforming this dry landscape into a wetland paradise full of Africa’s Big Game.
The Okavango’s immense game volumes, as well as the region’s sheer beauty, make it easy to understand why the Delta is considered one of Africa’s top travel destinations.
What you really need to know
The game really does move about! Itineraries to Botswana require careful design by knowledgeable consultants. Game volumes in this region differ throughout the year, and accommodation that appeals to you may well be in the wrong area for the time of your trip.
We recommend also that clients book more than one Okavango camp. The Delta is vast and the habitat is varied – as a result, limiting your stay to only one Delta camp will restrict your overall experience.
As a final point, we reckon that game viewing in Botswana at any time of year will rival game viewing anywhere else! The Delta really is that good.
