Tours & Safaris

A selection of safaris that will allow you to see the Okavango Delta at its best. These safaris include not just the delta but some of the spectacular wildlife destinations which surround it

The Okavango Delta lies at the heart of Botswana’s safari circuit, and most tours and safaris to the country include this water wonderland. The delta is the ultimate African safari destination, with breathtaking scenery and some of the best wildlife on the continent.

A safari will include a selection of camps and lodges, each bringing something unique to the experience. These camps will, together, offer a combination of water and land activities, allowing you to gain a real understanding of the delta. The first time visitor to the delta will generally move every two to three days, but returning visitors or those with more specific interests might spend considerably longer in a camp or lodge.

Save for a few camps in the Moremi Game Reserve and Khwai Concession; geography makes a necessity of movement by air with light aircraft the most common form of transport.

The safari itineraries below offer a sample of what is possible within the delta and can be used on their own or combined with other delta properties and with camps and lodges throughout Botswana to provide the core component of a more extensive safari.
