Okavango Delta, Botswana | Camps, safaris, travel guide

The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta, and houses a diverse range of wildlife in its many ecosystems. The wildlife is incredibly diverse. Crocodiles and hippos populate the waters, while elephant, leopard, giraffe, cheetah, lion, baboon and a variety of antelope are all regularly seen on the plains. The birdlife, too, is prolific.

Okavango and Chobe safari

We had a grand adventure. We'll never forget it.
