The Okavango Delta offers a wealth of riches for all those whose African safari experiences have already taken them through rainforest and over savannah. Selected as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, the Okavango’s more than 2 million hectares of swamp, river, lake and floodplain are a water-rich habitat populated by a wide variety of wildlife. Africa’s Big Five can all be found here, as well as herds of lechwe antelope, zebra, giraffe, impala and wildebeest, to name but a few species. One of the highest densities of wild dog in all of Africa make their home in the Okavango, as well as over 400 species of bird – including African fish eagles and sacred ibis – while hippos wallow in the deeper waters and crocodiles swim through channels in search of prey.
