The Okavango Delta, Botswana Plan a trip

Experience one of the world’s greatest wildernesses, the magnificent Okavango Delta.

Spanning up to 22,000 square kilometres (depending on annual flood waters) of northern Botswana, this beautiful oasis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Delta is also known as one of the seven natural wonders of Africa. So it’s safe to say, it really is a must-see if you’re visiting Botswana.

There are many ways to experience the wonders of the Okavango Delta, which include sightings of rare and endangered species. Head out on a boat trip across this wetland wilderness to encounter iridescent dragonflies, jewel-coloured kingfishers, hippos and honey badgers along the banks of the many waterways and lagoons.

Out on guided game drives and safari tours, you’ll see healthy populations of elephants, lions, black and white rhino, cheetah, leopard, African wild dogs and any number of stunning bird species. This is an Eden on earth, an area that’s simply bursting with life, and one of the world’s most important conservation sites. If you’re a budding nature photographer, animal lover or simply want to get back to nature, you’ll just love it here.

And as you can imagine, this lush green paradise is pretty romantic too. It has many intimate, exclusive lodges nestled in beautiful locations, where you can have up-close wildlife encounters and see some of the most colourful and stunning sunsets on earth. This makes the Okavango Delta, often called the ‘jewel of the Kalahari Desert’, the perfect choice for an unforgettable honeymoon.
