Deep within the Kalahari lies a vast and beautiful watery wilderness – the Okavango Delta.

Home to a maze of channels, swamps and lushly vegetated islands the delta provides shelter and a home to a diverse array of wildlife.

From our base in Maun, we offer boat safari trips where we can spend two or three nights exploring the lower reaches of the delta by motor boat, camping on remote palm fringed islands as we go.

The islands are big game country with elephants, buffalo, kudu and giraffe all plentiful. Elephants are often found feeding or cooling off. There are various hippo pools, lagoons, backwaters and channels that can be explored.

Finally, the birdlife is exceptional. Look out for Wattled Crane and majestic African Fish Eagles as we go. Birders may be especially interested to try and track down the elusive Pel’s Fishing Owl after hearing its deep booming call.

Leave the motor behind and go mokoro (by canoe) and experience the river as the locals do.

Our guides lead you in dugout canoes to more remote islands where we can camp under the stars. By day, we can enjoy bush walks where elephant are regularly sighted – and learn about plants used locally for medicine and food.

If you feel tempted, try your hand at operating the dugout canoes - but only after tuition from your expert guides!
