Botswana with Wilderness Safaris

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta, one of the most incredible wilderness sanctuaries in Africa, is 15 000 km² filled with water channels, lagoons and islands. Each year, floodwaters flow from the central African highlands over 1 000 km away into the Delta to create this wondrous wetland within a desert. It is home to large numbers of wildlife from common mammals and birdlife to those that are not often seen elsewhere, such as sitatunga, wild dog, and wattled crane.

Highlights

  • The Okavango is one of the largest inland delta systems in the world
