Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you might not see during the day.

There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). These excursions reveal the fascinating smaller creatures of the Delta including colourful frogs and lively waterbirds. *This activity is water-level dependent.
