The Okavango Delta is one of the largest inland deltas in the world, made up of an intricately woven network of crystal clear channels and lagoons lined with papyrus reeds and palm fringed islands. It is a unique wetland that not only supports and sustains a huge diversity of wildlife, providing excellent game viewing throughout the year, but it is beautiful and awe inspiring in itself.

Whilst the emphasis of a Botswana safari is often on large mammals, of which there is a prolific amount in the Okavango, there are many other specialised animals and birds to be enjoyed. The islands and lagoons of the delta are a haven for birds and aquatic life - as many as 580 bird species have been recorded in Botswana and more than 80 fish species identified in the Okavango.

It is the sense of wilderness, of a pristine ecosystem, that you will remember from your Okavango Delta safari.

There is a fantastic selection of camps and accommodation in Okavango Delta, including Eagle Island Camp, Khwai River LodgeKwando Lebala, Kwando Lagoon, Sanctuary Baines' Camp and Sanctuary Stanley's Camp.

You made sure that the person picking up my internet enquiry was knowledgeable, interested, had an engaging telephone and email manner, and was able to provide a one-stop point of reference, from our first telephone conversation through to arranging the deposit. The service delivery Chris Hamlin provided was second to none - really impressive.
