Rightly considered one of the most incredible wildlife and wilderness sanctuaries in Africa, the Okavango is the largest inland delta in the world – each year floodwaters flow from their source in the highlands of Angola and spread in the shape of a panhandle into a magical water-world of papyrus swamps, reed beds and floodplains.
The most unique and remarkable attribute of the Okavango is the fact that it is a wetland paradise located in the arid Kalahari Desert – and unlike any other major river in the world, the Okavango never reaches the sea but instead, simply seeps into the parched soil. This water ‘wonderland’ lingers over a near flat surface where you can glide along in a traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) and experience Africa at water level!
