Okavango Boating Expedition
Typically most safaris into the Okavango Delta entail flying in to permanent lodges by aircraft and exploring the island or concession on which the lodge or camp is set.
This is an exceptional experience as you are likely to encounter a wide variety of the Delta’s wildlife and have a choice of ways to experience it – safari drive, boat or mokoro traditional canoe.
There is another way to experience the Okavango however – one that speaks to the adventurer wishing to see the Delta from the rivers, side channels, lagoons and islands which characterize it.
Over a number of days you navigate by fully equipped boat from the eastern edge of the Delta to the animal-rich area around Chiefs island. A mobile tented camp and team travel in advance to set up on remote islands. Your island camps act as your base from which you undertake daily expeditions – searching for Sitatunga in the papyrus swamps, tiger fishing in deep sand-bottomed channels, walking wetland islands, swimming and lunching (and a few G ‘n T’s!) in vast shallow lagoons. It’s a wild, remote and fun-filled adventure perfect for families looking to pack multiple experiences into a totally exclusive expedition.
