Okavango Delta Explorer

Okavango Delta Explorer

Experience the best of Botswana on a six-night safari in three Desert & Delta Safaris lodges. Your journey begins in the heart of the world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve for a chance to witness the diversity of wildlife that calls the Okavango Delta home. From Moremi, a short light aircraft takes you to the heart of the Okavango Delta, where you will enjoy daily bush walks, mokoro excursions and boating safaris as you learn more about the intricacies of the Okavango Delta.

The Moremi Game Reserve is situated in the eastern part of the Okavango Delta, on the south-western border of the Chobe National Park, and covers almost one-third of the Delta.

Its wealth of bird and animal life makes Moremi a prime game-viewing area. Bird life is exceptional and diverse in all areas of the Moremi Game Reserve. During the dry season, the congregation of all species along permanent rivers and waterholes makes Moremi Game Reserve one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences in Africa.

Described as ‘the jewel of the Kalahari’, the Okavango Delta – a tranquil and isolated oasis set in the harsh and arid surroundings of Botswana’s bush and desert – is widely regarded as one of Africa’s best safari destinations, with its rich diversity of fauna and flora.

The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s largest inland water systems. It rises in Angola’s western highlands, then flows through northern Namibia and finally enters Botswana, where it is called the Okavango. Seen from space as an emerald swirl surrounded by a parched landscape, the delta is a miraculous source of life in a country that is 80% arid.

Highlights: Exciting mokoro (dugout canoe) safari in the Okavango Delta, game drives and bush walks in Moremi and spectacular views while travelling by charter flight.
