Okavango Delta - Arrive in Botswana’s Remote Wild
The Okavango Delta is one of the most extraordinary destinations in Africa. Stunning wildlife thrives along the marshy banks of the sprawling branches and is found in the distant call of leopard barks and the nightly whoop of a hunting hyena. Papyrus reeds sway in the gentle morning breeze, and the vast sands of the bordering Kalahari Desert offer a glimpse of the landscape on the close perimeter of the oasis of palm, acacia, sycamore fig, and mangosteen trees. After landing at the airstrip, your private transfer will escort you to the comforts of the Vumbura Plains safari camp.
The luxurious grounds rise out of the diverse surroundings accentuated by opulent tents with private plunge pools and views open to the wafting reeds nestled between the banks of the delta’s iconic channels. For an introduction to your camp and the splendor of the ecosystem, you can experience a mokoro safari by boarding the traditional dugout canoe with an experienced guide and skipper. The canoe has become a symbol of the Delta as it spans nearly 20 feet in length and offers a unique view of the wilderness and wildlife from the sunken perspective of the water. Your guide will steer you down the channel quietly gliding on the water as the aroma of Jacaklberry trees fills the air. You may spot the Bradfield’s hornbill perched on the strands of grass. The bird can grow up to 22 inches tall and can have yellow eyes with a red beak.
