Botswana is one of the most economically stable countries in Africa and is one of the world’s largest producers of diamonds. Roughly similar in size to France but with a population of only 2 million, Botswana is a sparsely populated country with some stunning and untouched wilderness.

Mokoros are dugout canoes maneuvered through the waterways by local guides who “pole” them through the reeds. After a leisurely glide through the delta we reach our accommodation for the night. The afternoon and evening will offer the chance to relax with a cold drink or take a dip in the delta.

The Okavango Delta, travelling from the Angolan highlands, is the largest inland delta in the world and is studded with lushly vegetated islands and unique bird life, with over 400 avian species.
