Trip Highlights

  • Explore the complete diversity of the Okavango Delta by crossing it from the narrow waterways of the southwest to the flowing panhandle in the northeast
  • Fully lose yourself in the landscape by staying in beautiful mobile camps along the way, each raised above the water and surrounded by the charms of the wilderness
  • The day's journey is as important as the destination as you cruise along channels that are dominated by wildlife, from the ubiquitous hippos to unique sitatungas and prowling big cats
  • Stop off at various untouched and unexplored islands, where you go on exhilarating walking safaris to see what's been left marooned in the Delta
  • Drift along the waterways and savor the serenity of the Okavango, the shaded boat allowing you to sit back and watch nature unfold
  • The mobile camps are comfortable and come with all the necessary luxuries in the bush, including hot showers, Western-style toilets, and a wonderful lullaby sung by the wildlife of nature
  • Complement the intimate exploration with an aerial safari above the Okavango Delta, the flight back from Shakawe to Maun revealing just how far you have drifted in the previous seven days
