The Okavango Delta is a unique pulsing wetland. More correctly an alluvial fan, the delta covers between 6 and 15 000 sq km of Kalahari Desert in northern Botswana and owes its existence to the Okavango (Kavango) River which flows from the Angolan highlands, across Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and into the harsh Kalahari Desert.
The Okavango Delta is known as an oasis in an otherwise dry environment known for its superb wildlife, with large populations of mammals and excellent birding particularly in the breeding season.
You will find a number of hiking trails that leads visitors along Tsodilo Hills. There are well established camps and lodges such as Mombo Camp, operated by Wilderness Safaris and Kanana, operated by Ker & Downey Botswana.
The Okavango Delta meet on Chief’s island where the home of the big five, Moremi Game Reserve has its base. Adventure and thrill is found here. The eastern edge of Delta meets the shoreline of khwai Concession, that has an abundance in mopane forest, floodplains, riverine forest and savannahs. Here wildlife-viewing can be done by vehicle, on foot, horseback, or on elephant back and by the traditional mokoro.
