A True Wildlife Oasis in the Kalahari Desert

The Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site, is surely one of the most renowned wilderness safari areas in Botswana and is not to be missed. Lying at the heart of the Kalahari Desert and known as the ‘river that never finds the sea” it boasts with a maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and fertile floating islands inhabited by Africa’s most distinctive wildlife. A range of highly rated luxury safari lodges is situated in prime locations offering unrivalled views of the Delta lagoons and floodplains filled with an array of wildlife and birdlife. Adapted for life in and out of water, the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga antelope are found in this watery wilderness. Lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog also share the floodplains with large herds of elephants and buffalo, plus other interesting creatures.

As a top luxury safari operator we can recommend the best luxury lodges situated on remote islands for your safari in the Delta.

Exceptional Land and River Game Viewing

A luxury Okavango Delta safari is made truly special by the fact that you can experience some of the best game viewing from both land and water during your luxury African safari. You can choose to stay at a land-based, water-based or a combination camp. During your safari you will experience high-quality game-viewing in game drive vehicles, or for the more adventurous, bush walks, boat cruises and mokoro excursions are also on offer bringing you even closer to the wildlife and birds. Expect to see herds of elephants, pods of hippo and crocodiles from your mokoro or boat, with fish eagles and kingfishers inhabiting the reed-lined riverbanks. We recommend that you plan to experience all these different safari activities during your luxury safari.
