The Okavango Delta (or Okavango Swamp), in Botswana, is the world’s largest inland delta.

The area was once part of Lake Makgadikgadi, an ancient lake that mostly dried up by the early Holocene, except for seasonal flooding. Today, the Okavango River has no outlet to the sea. Instead, it empties onto the sands of the Kalahari Desert, irrigating 15,000 km² of the desert. Each year some 11 cubic kilometres of water reach the delta. Some of this water reaches further south to Lake Ngami.

The Okavango is home to a prosperity of wildlife and attracts thousands of visitors a year. There are simple camps as well as luxury resorts within the delta region that cater to these visitors.

The delta provides a seasonal habitat to numerous different species. Among these are African Bush Elephants, the African Buffalo, the Hippopotamus, the Lechwe, the Topi, the Blue Wildebeest, the Giraffe, the Nile crocodile, the Lion, the Cheetah, the Leopard, Brown and Spotted Hyenas, Greater Kudu, the Sable Antelope, both the Black and the White Rhinoceros, the Plains Zebras, the Warthog and the Chacma Baboon. Notably the endangered African Wild Dog is present within the Okavango Delta, exhibiting one of the richest pack densities in Africa. The delta also includes over 400 species of birds, including the African Fish Eagle, the Crested Crane, the Lilac-breasted Roller, the Hammerkop, Ostrich, and the Sacred Ibis.

Come and escape the crowds and camp in unfenced campsites on the banks of the Khwai River amongst the wild inhabitants of the Okavango Delta while being spoilt with scrumptious bush dinners every night while enjoying the African night sky around the roaring campfire.

This tour is limited to a maximum of 8 vehicles and is off-road trailer friendly.
