A seasonal oasis and magnet for migratory herds.
There may be plenty of options when it comes to African safaris, but none boast the geographic or biological diversity of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. The Okavango Delta offers some of the best unspoilt vistas in Africa. With a variety of habitats and ever abundant water, the Okavango Delta provides the photographer with a wealth of photographic subjects, dramatic landscapes, herds of plain’s game and spectacular birdlife.
Seasonal floods draw herds of buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, leopards, hyenas, rhinoceros, zebra and more to the region, which is a designated world heritage site and one of the only inland freshwater deltas on Earth. A uniquely seasonal landscape means that an Okavango Delta safari can incorporate savannah, forests, rivers and lagoons — each offering diverse flora and fauna. Encompassing nearly 40 percent of the Okavango Delta’s waterways, the Moremi Reserve is regarded as one of the best game-viewing areas on the continent. And while the Mombo Camp, one of the Reserve’s premier luxury campsites, located on the north end of Chief’s Island in the middle of the Delta, is renowned for its 4×4 game drives, the long verandas surrounding each tent offer prime viewing for local herds, prides and packs, too.
