Okavango Delta

One of Africa’s wildlife meccas, the Okavango Delta is a 15000 sq. km (5792 sq. mi) inland delta fed by seasonal floodwaters that inundate the area, peaking from June to August.
The abundance of water and food attracts all manner of wildlife in a concentrated area – and in their wake, tourists lucky enough to witness this unspoilt wilderness. Due to its size and low-volume approach to tourism, the Okavango Delta never feels crowded and offers a taste of true nature. Tourists visiting this World Heritage Site have a large selection of accommodations and service providers, and the water-based safari activities are a standout attraction.
