Okavango Delta – does it have to be expensive?
The Okavanga Delta is one of those destinations that you promise yourself you will go to – when you have won the lottery. As a safari destination it is one of Africa’s top attractions; but access is not straight forward and many areas limit the number of visitors to them. It has always been seen as an expensive destination. But it does not have to be.
Why is the Okavanga such a good destination in the first place? It is the mixture of traditional 4×4 game drives, night drives, walking safaris, powered boat cruises through the channels and rivers of the Delta or in a mokoro (dug out canoe). It is a chance to see the wildlife in different ways and at different paces. For those of you that enjoy bird watching as well as the animals, then you are in for a real treat. The water attracts a host of different birds – over 440 species recorded – many that you will see close up when being punted along in a mokoro. The call of the African Fish eagle must be one of the iconic sounds of East and South Africa.
We know a company with excellent small camps (biggest being 12 tents) across the Okavanga that is offering a 10 day safari that includes internal flight, all meals, game activities as above, local branded drinks, laundry and park fees – all from £270 per person per night. The offer is available from mid November to the end of April 2014.
