Kayaking in the Okavango is easily one of the best experiences I have ever had. All of this is thanks to all the care and attention that John puts in the experience. We had a very well planned trip with pit stops in breathtaking settings and a camping site just in the middle of wilderness. All the personnel was amazing,... More

If you're eager to see elephants, lions, rhinoceros, zebras, giraffes in their natural habitat and take a moment to observe them genuine behavior, then you should definitively visit this place.

The Okavango Delta is a pretty unique place to visit. We were driving, from Cape Town, and whilst April is usually a good time to visit by road because the Angolan water has yet to arrive, the local rain had caused Third Bridge to be flooded. Undaunted we camped at Xakanaka and whilst the game driving was limited by water... More

신선놀음에 가까운 여행임. 모꼬로라고 불리우는 현지 배에 몸을 싣고, 2 ~ 3시간 정도 물길을 따라 가다가 동물이 보이면 잠깐 쉬어서 보고, 다시 캠핑 사이트로 가서 2박 하는 일정이었는데, 너무 자유로왔고 자연의 아름다움을 그대로 만끽할 수 있는 기회였음. It was such a relaxing trip that Mokoro pullers are driving the boat and just sit back and relax. Camping was also great... More

One of the jewels of the whole world - don't miss this if you are coming to Southern Africa. Do spend the $ to go on a scenic flight over the delta. We went with MACK air and found them to be incredibly professional. One of the best things I've done in my life.

When you visit the delta do it by mokoro it's so relaxing to do a trip without any noise, only the pole and the wildlife. I've been here 3 days in a tent and it was pure bliss. I did my trip with bushways and I can truly recommend them, especially our driver/guide Eddy (whom I gave my ledlenser light,... More

Safari here was amazing. Flew in on a small airplane and spent the week. Part in a open top jeep and another in a canoe. Wildlife viewing is amazing.

At first, I find it hard to believe that this is the delta. The largest in the world. So large, in fact, it can be seen from space! Unlike many other famous wildlife regions in the African continent, Botswana’s Okavango Delta has few visitors. Obviously it means that the place is well protected. The water of the Okavango is particularly... More
