Game drives in the Okavango
Okavango Delta and Moremi, Botswana
One of the best ways to see the big game of Botswana's Okavango Delta is on a game drive with a knowledgeable guide. Explore in open-sided vehicles to maximise your viewing opportunities, this is a truly wildlife rich environment.
From the forested glades to the open grasslands, there are plentiful habitats here to support a fascinating mix of wildlife. Look for the patterned backs of African wild dog, one of the best hunters in the animal kingdom, as they relentlessly run down their prey. Or watch a leopard lounging in the shady bough of a tree, waiting for night time to fall when they are most active. It's not just about the carnivores, of course - with beautiful puku and waterbuck found along the shorelines, elephants swimming across the channels from one island to the next, and herds of buffalo chewing the cud, every game drive here is unique. Night drives allow the opportunity to see an entirely different set of animals on the move, from tiny bush babies to lions on the prowl.
