Okavango Delta

Journey to the Okavango Delta, and experience a few magical days exploring this vast and extraordinarily beautiful oasis. Located in the north-west of Botswana, the Delta is made up of floodplains, waterways, forested islands and lily-dotted lagoons. A true wilderness of green and blue fanning out of into the arid sands of the Kalahari Desert.

Stay in remote luxury on one of the Okavango’s innumerable islands. Land-based camps focus on thrilling game drives in search of leopard, wild dog and other big game. At water-based camps you can enjoy mokoro and boat safaris all year round. You don’t have to choose either, as many of the Okavango Delta’s camps and lodges offer a combination of both.
