WHAT MAKES A SAFARI IN THE OKAVANGO DELTA IN BOTSWANA SO UNIQUE & UNFORGETTABLE?

THE OKAVANGO IS THE ULTIMATE DESTINATION FOR AN AFRICAN SAFARI. A PRISTINE WILDERNESS OF WATERWAYS, ISLANDS AND GRASSLANDS, THE OKAVANGO DRAWS GREAT HERDS OF MIGRATORY ANIMALS AND PREDATORS TO ITS FERTILE SHORES, MAKING IT THE BEST BIG FIVE AFRICAN SAFARI DESTINATION.

The lodges in the Okavango cater to small numbers of guests - each one operating in its own private concession area, affording complete privacy and exclusivity on a Botswana safari.

With over 450 bird species recorded in the area, it is a haven for birders and twitchers. Wildlife is abundant throughout, making this a true Big 5 safari region, with vast herds of elephant, buffalo and hippo making this fertile region their home, as well as numerous antelope, giraffe and zebra, followed by lion, leopard, cheetah, smaller predators and numerous scavengers.

REGIONS MAKING UP THE GREATER OKAVANGO DELTA COMPLEX INCLUDE MOREMI & LINYANTI.

Botswana has plenty of wilderness areas - and plenty of wildlife to occupy them. The country has some of the biggest residual herds of wildlife in Africa. You can really experience them in the their true natural habitat - teeming in the OKavango Delta islands and waterways, feeding on the vast grasslands of Chobe National Park and migrating through the parched saltpans of the Kalahari.

In Botswana, you will never encounter masses of tourists. The higher than normal prices deter larger budget tour groups and maintain a low density of safari travellers throughout the OKavango. The significance of being in nature is the highpoint for the visitor, while the private concessions throughout Botswana's wildlife Eden offer some of the finest lodges and most exclusive safari experiences in Africa.
