Top Reasons to visit the Okavango Delta as a solo traveller or with a group

Iconic scenery, luxury settings and amazing wildlife, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is a perfect location for an African safari adventure. Take a trip here and you’ll discover a vast array of luxurious accommodation options, or wild camping, (depending on your budget of course) with both choices allowing you to explore the beautiful surroundings and get up close and personal with some amazing wildlife.

Here are just some of the reasons why your next adventure should be a trip to the Okavango Delta.

Witness some of the world’s most endangered animals

The Okavango Delta has become synonymous with some of the planet’s most diverse animals. In cycles they navigate plains making for a spectacular game viewing experience.

As you explore the Okavango, there’s a great chance you will witness a plethora of rare predators including lions, leopards and cheetahs. If you’re lucky you may even encounter the endangered black and white rhinoceros as well as other endangered mammals.

Unique Ecosystem

Made up of marshlands and flooded plains, the Okavango is an ecological marvel. It stands as one of only a limited amount of delta systems that are totally detached from the ocean. Depending when you decide to travel, and which Okavango Delta safari holiday package you choose to book, you’ll have the chance to explore exotic plants and wildlife at your leisure.

Explore the trails

Again, depending on what sort of safari trip you book, there are several activities you can undertake that will leave lasting memories. The most popular activities are walking trails and horseback safaris. Whether you decide to explore on foot or on horseback, you can venture into the drier reaches without the need for a motor. Exploring the delta via these options may mean you might not encounter the best wildlife sightings, but you will be guaranteed to get up closer to nature.

Safari in luxury

Unless you opt for a wild camping option, the Okavango Delta plays host to a vast array of luxury accommodation options. There are numerous private camps scattered across the area and they promise exceptional comfort with options ranging from tented camps through to luxurious five-star lodges.

Some luxury accommodation options even offer amazing suites with pools, outdoor terraces and private housekeepers so you will feel right at home, the only difference is you’re surrounded by breath-taking landscapes and iconic wildlife.
