Motorboats take guests along the winding channels to neighboring islands, while tranquil mokoro trips provide serene game-viewing experiences. Some of the region’s larger species can be tracked and sighted on nature walks and experienced guides lead all safari activities. Bird-watching is best during the migratory season from November through to March. The Okavango is famous for its fish, which include fighting tigerfish, pike and bream. Fishing is offered on a catch-and-release basis.
The water wilderness of the Okavango Delta supports a huge diversity of bird and animal life. As well as possible sightings of wild dog, leopard and cheetah, other resident species include lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, hyena, zebra, kudu, red lechwe, sable and roan antelope. The elusive Sitatunga antelope can also be found in the wetland ecosystem.
Over 400 bird species have been recorded, including the iconic African fish eagle and the endangered Pel's fishing owl. Reed cormorant, African darter, Eastern white pelican, African spoonbill, Goliath heron, egrets, herons, glossy ibis, sacred ibis, storks, geese and ducks are some of the many species that are often sighted in the area.
