African Safari Vacation Package to Okavango Delta, Botswana
The Okavango Delta is a collection of islands, channels and seasonal floodplains, a place where the dry season signals the arrival of floodwaters from distant highlands. Such is the unique nature of the Okavango that the water levels will be the lowest during the rainy season and at their highest during the peak of winter.
The wildlife experience in the Okavango Delta is exceptional, with the Big 5 present in many of the areas. Africa’s largest elephant concentrations are found in Botswana and the Okavango is one of the best places to see these herds. The Okavango is also where the elephant-back safaris originated.
The delta is made up of a number of eco-systems that allow for a host of activities ranging from game drives and wilderness walks to boating and riding in dugout canoes.
Best time to travel to Okavango
The Okavango Delta is a year round safari destination. The rainy season is from November to March and is the best time for birding and to see antelope with their young. The dry winter months is the best time for game viewing and the best time to see the Okavango at its highest water levels.
Maun is the safari capital of Botswana and the airport is the main entry and exit point for safaris into the Okavango Delta. There are daily flights from and to Johannesburg in South Africa [1h20min].
