” Sitting at the geographical heart of southern Africa, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is the closest thing to Eden left on the planet”

Makoro Ride, Okavango

   Africa’s most extraordinary places.  Unesco World Heritage–listed Okavango Delta – the rising and falling of its waters; the daily drama of its wildlife encounters; sounds of lions roaring, saw-throated leopard barks and the crazy whoop of a running hyena and wild dogs; and the mysteries concealed by its papyrus reeds swaying so gently in the evening breeze


Moremi National Park

Named after the Batawana chief Moremi III, the reserve has been extended over the years and now encompasses almost 5000 sq km. Moremi Game Reserve, which covers one-third of the Okavango Delta, is home to some of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa and is also the home of the big 5.
