With the selection of activities on offer, you are sure to have an unbelievable water and wildlife experience. The Okavango Delta is renowned for its abundance of wildlife and ensures an up close and personal experience with the amazing fauna and flora. Our location in the Northern Okavango Delta allows for both land and water activities.

Most activities are conducted by our experienced guides, we employ from the local community and this ensures all guides have an advantage of local knowledge of the area.

Feel free to engage with your guide at any time and ask as many questions as you like whilst on Safari. Nothing is too much trouble for our guides.

4×4 GAME DRIVES

Enjoy sightings of the varied wildlife the concession has to offer from the comfort of the open 4×4 off road game drive vehicle.

Stop along the way, with your experienced guide on a morning game drive, sip on a mug of “Game Ranger” coffee with a breakfast sandwich or toast the spectacular sunset with a gin and tonic and bar snacks. 

MOKORO (DUGOUT CANOE)

A mokoro activity is an iconic Okavango Delta activity, you will be guided by your specialist guide poler into shallow waters where a boat cannot reach.

Glide silently through the reeds and water lily “fields” and observe the wonderful aquatic flora and fauna, the pods of hippos wallowing in the channels and other game along the water’s edge.

BOAT SAFARIS

Boating through the water channels will provide access to the concession for game drives during the wet season or just enjoy a leisurely boat trip down the water channels.

Observe the spectacular aquatic birdlife, especially during the months of August and September. Sip on a sundowner while you drift down the channel whilst enjoying the scenery and game sightings.

ADOPT A BAOBAB

Join us on an educational activity to explore the world of the Baobab tree. These trees are being destroyed by the large numbers of elephant in the Okavango Delta. Some of these magnificent trees are 2000 years old.

We started the Adopt-A-Baobab initiative where we protect the iconic Baobabs with a special regenerative  slurry that discourages elephants from eating this specific species of trees.
