The Okavango Delta is one of Africa’s most impressive wildlife areas. As famous as Tanzania's Serengeti or Kenya's Masai Mara, the Okavango is the world's only inland delta and is an area of exceptional natural beauty. Its lily-scattered flood plains and palm-fringed islands have exceptionally high concentrations of Africa’s big game in one of the continent's most beautiful settings. The Okavango is an area that exceeds expectations and would certainly stake its claim as the world's best safari destination.
What is the Okavango Delta?
The Delta area has been split up into private reserves where the game viewing is available only to resident guests. As a result, the Okavango offers some of the most exclusive game viewing area in Africa. The heart of the Okavango is the Moremi, a public park that is particularly busy in areas but is also home to the Mombo concession, a wildlife area regarded by many as the best in the world.
Why the Okavango Delta?
- Privacy – The Delta operates on a low volume, high quality approach to tourism meaning all the reserves are private, giving you a slice of paradise & magnificent wildlife all to yourself.
- Off-roading – Contrary to the strict national park rules, the Delta’s private concessions allow for off-road driving, meaning you can get closer to the animals & generally enjoy a freer safari experience…
- Activity variety – The private concessions also have the freedom to offer more diverse safari activities such as boating, horse riding and walking safaris – a real luxury.
- Wildlife & flora – Nowhere quite compares or competes with the wildlife and natural beauty of the Okavango Delta. Being the only inland Delta on earth, it is utterly dream-like and bewitching, even without the Noah’s ark procession of wildlife which call its watery channels home.
