Explore the Okavango Delta as she reveals some of her secrets

The Okavango Delta has been called Africa’s last Eden. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Located in the north western corner of Botswana, Okavango is a wetland pulsing with wildlife, boasting an unusually large mammal count, as well as a huge variety of birds, with the incredibly rare and endangered wattled crane being a birder’s highlight. This safari is a mix of water and wilderness with crystal clear channels and lagoons winding through the Delta, playing host to many fish and frogs, and the iridescent kingfishers that dive for them.

Due to its constant hot climate, this year-round safari offers breathtaking views and photography opportunities of a lifetime. While the majority of safaris are done in open 4×4 safari vehicles, you can also mix it up with a motorboat safari or a ride in a traditional ‘Makoro’ canoe, both being excellent ways of getting a new perspective on the wildlife within the Delta.

Each year, the Delta receives a water influx and floods, creating an entirely new world for both animals and visitors alike. At this time of year, a ride in a traditional ‘Makoro’ canoe is one of the best ways to see the region. The animals continue life with the water rising, and it is great to see lions and leopards negotiating the water channels, while elephants play freely in the water.

The serene Delta is the ideal place to relax and FiveZero offers luxury accommodations in exclusive handpicked lodges, most of them on their own little islands within the Delta.

If you want to extend your safari, a short flight gets you back to Johannesburg from where you have easy access to the rest of Southern Africa, including the magnificent Victoria Falls. Contact our safari specialists to help you plan your dream safari!
