By far Botswana’s biggest attraction. Approximately 965 kilometers (600 miles) away in neighbouring highlands of Angola, lies the source of the Okavango River. The first rains fall in mid-November and continue until around March when it gets drier with less rain. Streams and rivers follow a south-easterly route through the Caprivi Strip and enter Botswana at the village of Mohembo. Although searching for the sea, ultimately the river fails to reach the ocean as it dries out in the sands of the Kalahari Desert. But during this “migration” the world’s largest inland delta is created making it a “must see” destination.
Activities in the Delta include mokoro (dugout canoe), motorised boat game safaris, day and night vehicle game drives, bird watching, fishing on request, and nature walks
