Botswana’s famous Okavango Delta is one of the world’s last untamed wildernesses. Known as “the jewel of the Kalahari Desert,” its labyrinth of lagoons and hidden channels covering an area of over 15 000 sq km is the largest inland delta in the world. It is mysterious, placid, and beautiful: an ever-expanding network of increasingly smaller channels hemmed in by papyrus reeds, linking islands and palm forests.
The delta offers a number of activities: from bird watching, game viewing, simple relaxation and fishing, to flying over the landscape by small plane for a view from the air. Above all it offers the opportunity for a great wilderness experience.
