·· Okavango Safari:
THE Okavango Delta in Botswana is home to some of the largest concentration of wildlife in Africa and is regarded as the ultimate safari destination of many seasoned Africa travelers.
The Okavango is truly a unique ecosystem, where over 16 000 sq km of inland waterways have turned the red sands of the Kalahari Desert into a land of plenty. With such abundance of water and grazing, it is little wonder that the region teems with wildlife, birds, spectacular trees and breathtaking scenery.
Travelers planning a safari to the Okavango should combine the Delta with another safari region, such as Chobe, which is a short hop away from Victoria Falls. Those wanting a break from the world should consider the Makgadikgadi Pans or Kalahari Desert - both places of rare beauty providing an escape into sacred solitude.
Getting to the Delta is easiest from Johannesburg, which has air links to Maun, the outback capital on the fringes of the Okavango. From there, it is a short hop by light aircraft to one of the lodges or camps in a private concession of the Okavango.
A usual day on safari in the Okavango starts with an early morning game drive, followed by a hearty breakfast back in camp. Before lunch, one can relax or possibly take a walking safari. There is a siesta after lunch, followed by late afternoon game viewing on open 4x4 vehicles or in makoro dugout canoes. A sumptuous supper is followed by a restful sleep in your private tented room.
