The Okavango Delta is host to an incredible collection of luxurious camps, safaris, and remarkable wildlife experiences.
An oasis that offers travelers an immersion into a world of wildlife. The area is protected by both the Moremi Game Reserve and the numerous wildlife concessions within Ngamiland. The Mombo Camp offers year-round sighting opportunities if you're looking to spot rare predators such as cheetahs, lions, as well as endangered black and white rhinoceros.
If you're looking for more of an adventure, flying over the delta is a breathtaking experience. With the sprawling nature of the complex waterways and the remote camps that are spread out over the region. Most camps do require guests to fly in on small bush planes, which is a necessity rather than a luxury.
The area is home to bird species so unique that many visitors consider it a significant ornithological hub. Some 450 birds have been recorded in the delta, and many twitchers will claim that its the most important breeding site in the world for the vulnerable slaty egret.
Guided safari by boat is not only nostalgic but is also a classic way to see the wilderness. With tented camps along the way, Okavango River Safari's will drive you along the river on comfortable custom-designed game viewing boats.
Exploring trails on foot or horseback is another great activity to familiarise one's self with the area. Exploring the Okavango Delta on horseback is a truly memorable experience. Cantering alongside giraffes as you hear the sounds of the grass blowing in the wind and the rattles of the palms. As you tour the wetlands you will get to be one on one with nature, watching great herds of wildebeest or buffalo.
The Okovango Delta also features some of Africa's most premier camps and lodges, including The Xaranna, The Xudum, and The Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp.
Xaranna is a camp with just nine ensuite safari tents. The atmosphere of the camp is light and airy to allow the gentle beauty of the environment to flow in. The Xudum consists of nine beautifully crafted safari suites, each with a lofty rooftop hideout with magnificent delta views as well as a private plunge pool. The Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is situated in a 25,000-hectare exclusive wildlife reserve and is on the edge of the Okavango delta. Positioned in such a way, that one is able to explore all that the area has to offer, boasting incredible views.
