From their source in the Angolan highlands, the waters of the Okavango Delta travel hundreds of miles to flood an area of between 2,300 and 5,800 square miles, providing vital habitat for an incredible diversity of wildlife. On this safari you’ll be able to go in search of predators and prey among the grasslands and river channels that crisscross the region, before heading south to Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. Below your camp’s clifftop vantage point winds the Boteti River – a congregation point for all animals here – while the sprawling salt flats to the east play host to animal migrations during the rainy season and a spiritually imbued silence during the dry.
