10 Day Okavango Lodge Safari

The Okavango Lodge safari is suitable for the whole family. This safari will focus on one of the largest inland deltas in the world. The Okavango Delta is a unique biosphere based in a semi-desert. The Okavango Panhandle is our destination. This is where we find the main river channel of the Okavango river. The main channel meets a series of papyrus islands and starts forming the Okavango Delta.  A Large variety of wildlife lives along these waterways.

Few things in the world compare to a boat trip on the Okavango river. The river meanders through papyrus and reed islands in a snake-like manner. These islands are inhabited by wildlife and some amazing birds. This safari will educate us on the sensitive biosphere of the Okavango. We will explore the coexistence of local culture and wildlife within a wilderness. A part of our safari will take us back to the ancient Khoisan cultures. Tsodilo Hills are well known for the largest and most natural museum to host rock art galleries of the past.

Our 10 Day Okavango Lodge safari will start in Maun and end in Victoria Falls. Our route is along the western part of the Okavango River. We meander through the Caprivi back to Chobe in Botswana.

The Kwando and Chobe rivers both contribute to the Okavango river. Along these waterways are some of the best wildlife in Southern Africa. Our ten day Okavango Lodge safari combines nature and wildlife with culture.

The Okavango River is home to some of the most exotic bird species in Africa. The waterways are the perfect habitat for raptors, insect eaters, and water birds. The change of seasons brings a large amount of migrating birds to this area. One of the most sought after birds is the Pel’s Fishing Owl.
