At first, I find it hard to believe that this is the delta. The largest in the world. So large, in fact, it can be seen from space! Unlike many other famous wildlife regions in the African continent, Botswana’s Okavango Delta has few visitors. Obviously it means that the place is well protected. The water of the Okavango is particularly... More

The Okavango Delta is my view of perfection on Earth. If you have not visited please stop what you are doing and book a trip now. You will thank me later.

We had just bad luck, as our guide was too lazy to really show us around even though he got paid. He brought no food, except one jar of sugar and 5 tea bags on a 3 day camping trip and expected us to provide for him. When we met an elephant in a grumpy mood, he made us walk... More

If you don't wanna get wet, avoid Going in February and/or March. As this is the only time we could travel, we decided to go anyway. And I have to be honest, we had a great time. We did not see as many animals as we were supposed to, but the lodge was empty - no packs of tourists -... More

If you want to see animals without crowds, this is the place to go. We love Kenya and Tanzania, but when there is something interesting to see you'll have to jockey with 20 other vehicles to see the wildlife, and you have to stay on the roads within the parks. Not here - no crowds and the guides can go... More

It is a wonderful game area but it is unrealistic expensive. Lodges in the area and safari are very over prized.

Okavango delta is an incredible place. It's so beautiful and wild. We saw is from above and from the river and did walking safaris. One can see so many animal species in their natural habitat. We loved it.

For wildlife viewing it is probably better to visit in the dry season. We camped for two nights - which is probably too much for seniors. Interesting but long (2.5 hours plus) boat ride to camp site.

the Okavango Delta is a must see. Navigating the waters on a moroko, camping along the river, stunning sunsets, warm and friendly locals, walking in the bush... cannot be forgotten
