The Okavango Experts

Wild, Rich & Unique

The Okavango Delta is a unique pulsing wetland. More correctly an alluvial fan, the delta covers between 6 and 15 000 square kilometres of Kalahari Desert in northern Botswana and owes its existence to the Okavango (Kavango) River which flows from the Angolan highlands, across Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and into the harsh Kalahari Desert.

Nile crocodile (Crocodilus niloticus)

Crocodiles have the strongest bite in the animal kingdom. And the Nile crocodile is no different. It’s bite can exert a force eight times more powerful than that of a great white shark and 15 times more than a Rottweiler’s. Powerful muscles for closing the jaws, however, contrast with small, weak ones for opening them.

Water, Land & Mixed Camps

The Okavango Delta offers a wide variety of accommodation in three broad categories - water, land and mixed camps, depending on the activities they offer. Water camps focus on the delta itself, its unique waterways, birds and aquatic creatures. Land based camps focus on the extraordinary game which is attracted to this oasis in the desert. Mixed camps provide both land and water activities. Visitors generally combine a water and land or mixed use camp.

Water-Focused Properties

Normally set on the permanent waters of the delta, these camps offer guests a quintessential Okavango water safari experience. Activities include motorboat and mokoro excursions as well as walks. With less big game viewing available these camps are often combined with land focused or multi-activity camps.

Land-Focused Properties

The Okavango Delta is not just about the waterways. Some of Africa’s best game viewing is found on these floodplains and islands. Activities at land focused camps and lodges are primarily 4x4 game drives, with some walking permitted in the private concessions. Land camps are often near water which is too shallow for activities.
