Roz, a Botswana specialist, describes her experience on safari in the world-famous Okavango Delta. Among other things, she gives details of what type of game you will see, nominates her favourite camp and explains the best time to visit.
Covering over 15,000 square kilometres the Okavango Delta in Botswana is one of the largest freshwater inland wetlands on the planet and it turns the red sands of the Kalahari Desert into a land of plenty.
It is an incredible location for viewing Africa’s amazing wildlife such as lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and the semi-aquatic red lechwe antelope. It is also home to hundreds of bird species including many that are rare, making this a bird watchers paradise.
One of the unique aspects of a visit here is a trip in a moroko (a locally made dug-out canoe) that will take you to inaccessible locations and hidden islands for glorious periods of solitude and wildlife spotting.
