The Okavango Delta is an iconic safari destination in northern Botswana that boasts the largest inland river delta in the world. Encompassing a maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and islands teeming with wildlife; the Okavango Delta is best explored by mokoro (traditional dugout canoe), by boat, on foot, and on game drives. The Moremi Game Reserve occupies the east and central areas of the region and offers sanctuary to over 500 species of birds along with a high concentration of plains game that attracts a number of predators. It is quite common to see lion, leopard, hyena, wild dogs, elephant, giraffe, buffalo, wildebeest, and various antelope.
The Okavango Delta is an exclusive safari destination offering luxury and tented accommodation options and an unforgettable safari experience all year round.
The cooler, drier winter months from May to October are excellent for game-viewing as herds of animals flock to decreasing water sources and the vegetation thins out. Days are warm; nights can be cold, especially in the desert. This is also the period when floodwaters reach the Delta making for excellent water-based activities such as boating and mokoro rides.
The hot, wet summer months from November to March are good for bird watching when migrants abound. Although game viewing is more challenging, these months draw fewer crowds and have plenty to offer. Many reserves are at their most beautiful, as the vegetation is lush and green, providing an ideal background for wildlife photography. This is also the animals’ calving season, so it’s perfect for seeing gamboling babies.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
