Travel in the Okavango Delta

There are two ways to explore the Okavango Delta: by road and by air. While road travel appeals to self-drive enthusiasts, certain areas can only be accessed by small planes.

The fly-in option allows you to reach remote camps on islands and private concessions that are inaccessible by vehicle, even a 4×4. The activities available at these camps depend on their location and the water levels of the Okavango’s flood. Some camps offer water-based or land-based activities exclusively.

Camps like Jumbo Junction provide year-round experiences, combining both water-based and land-based adventures. These camps are strategically located in the northern part of the delta, where deep channels feed the rest of the delta in the south.

Getting to the Okavango Delta

The main access points to the Okavango Delta are Maun and Kasane. Maun, located on the southern tip of the delta, and Kasane, on the Chobe River in the north, have international airports served by Air Botswana and Airlink from Johannesburg, South Africa.

The easiest way to reach camps and lodges in the Okavango is by light aircraft. A short flight from Maun offers breathtaking aerial views of the delta. Please note that strict luggage restrictions apply, so pack light and consult us or your agent for a useful packing list.

If you prefer to drive, a fully equipped 4×4 vehicle is necessary. Conditions can be challenging, with rough terrain, sandy tracks, water crossings, and muddy stretches during the wet season. A self-drive safari requires confidence and preparedness.
