Okavango by boat

The Okavango Delta is a 17, 000 square kilometers (6600 square miles) of pristine wilderness. A labyrinth of channels and lagoons snaking their way slowly into the Kalahari Desert, creating a unique and amazing oasis, full of biodiversity. One of the best way to explore this incredible landscape is to get out onto its waterways by boat. On a 8 night/9 day guided mobile boating safari that travels from the top to the bottom of the Okavango Delta, you will get to experience the Okavango Delta in all its glory. Along the way you will stay on uninhabited islands in comfortable tented accommodation. These islands are just a few of the estimated 50,000 islands dotted all over the Okavango Delta. Navigating the channels on aluminum T- Craft boats that have been constructed to the highest standards and powered by environmentally friendly 4 stroke outboard motors. Many trips pass through the world famous Moremi Game Reserve, where opportunities abound for amazing bird sightings as well as hippos, elephants and some of the larger mammals that call this area home. Whether you are a keen photographer, slightly adventurous at heart, or just wanting to appreciate a pristine and remote wilderness, a boat safari through the Okavango will give you a uniquely unforgettable experience.

For a shorter "on the water" experience, Selinda offers 3 night/4 day canoe trips also in the Selinda Spillway. For more information check out our previous blog on the topic. Travelers can also easily combine these boat safaris with a classic safari or a luxury lodge. Among the many great properties in the Delta we recommend, Abu Camp, Duba Plains and Nxabega Tented Camp.
