Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world, and one of the natural wonders of the African continent. Located in northwestern Botswana, this vast wetland is over 1,000 square miles in size, and is the home to over a hundred species of mammals, over one hundred species of fish and over a hundred species of birds. The Delta is best known for its abundance of elephants, which inhabit the area in large herds and are often spotted near the numerous freshwater lakes. You’ll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures, as your expert guide will take you on game drive.

The delta has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its unique flora and fauna, as well as its role in Botswana’s history, culture, and economy. The wetlands are a major source of water for the country’s cities and towns, and the area is an important breeding ground for many fish species. The delta has been the site of human settlement for thousands of years, and archaeological finds suggest that the area was inhabited by the San people as early as 100 BCE.
