Okavango Delta, Maun

Listed as a World Heritage Site, Okavango Delta represents an important checkpoint for many migratory animal species--it also boasts one of Africa's greatest concentrations of year-round residents. Covering a sprawling area that shrinks and expands with seasonal flooding, the swampy delta shelters an abundant variety of mammals, birds, fish, and predatory beasts. Go on a safari trip to observe the rich animal and plant life of this region, providing a home for around 200,000 large mammals. Put Okavango Delta on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ngamiland East journey maker site .

  • I did not have much luck seeing predators here but being the the delta travelling between islands in morokos, and getting out to do walking safaris on the islands was an incredibly unique experience. ...  more »
  • It's a long ride to get there, but it's worth. Right after we run in the Park we saw some elephants at the watering hole and stood quietly, a whole customer arrived with their babies, gigantic! Later lion after the hunt and a Leopard, etc. anyway in the morning is many giraffes, at 7:00 good to see the world there still in order and everything.

  • My husband and I travel abroad frequently and we used Letaka Safaris in 2017 and Lucas was also our guide. I actually stumbled across this review because I was looking at doing a second mobile safari ...  more »

  • A nice place teeming with a variety of wildlife. Lodges are in diversity, affordable and well furnished for tourist. Rooms are good for family and friendly holiday outings. The River's regime is the only challenge to your nice stay. Dry seasons are the best time to check-in here. The mighty Zambezi Falls are a few miles from here.
  • One of the miracles of nature - a bucket list destination. The Kgalagadi desert turns into a lush green wetland here in the largest inland delta in the world. It's the story of four geological faults - two of them, the panhandle faults, channel the Okavango river where it builds up against the Gomare fault following the seasonal rains in the Angolan highlights. For six months of the year the river breaks the fault and islands, floodplains, logoons and channels build up over some 100km because of a fourth fault line, the Kunyere fault. The Okavango Delta is one of the best preserved wild life areas in the world home to lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, the African wild dog, giraffe and countless species of antelope, small predators, birds reptiles and insects - not forgetting crocodile and hippopotamus. Enjoy viewing game right on the water from a Mocoro, traditionally a canoe made from a single tree trunk and now a more eco-friendly version made from fibreglass poled over the shallow flood plains. Stay over at one of the lodges in the area I recommend Jumbo Junction, a comfortable smaller one, run by couple Sue and Greg, at the north-western edge of the Delta close to Gunotsonga.
  • One of a kind place in Africa. Must visit but pick your season. Most water from February to June. All the game species are here. All kinds of accommodation. From camping on your own, up to the ultimate luxury lodges. Fly in or drive yourself.
  • I'm actually just writing a paper on this, but seems like a cool place.
