Okavango Delta: Our most recommended tours and activities

From Maun: Moremi Game Reserve Tour

1. From Maun: Moremi Game Reserve Tour

This day trip to Moremi is the quickest way to catch a glimpse of what this remarkable reserve has to offer. If you don’t have the time to spend the night, then this activity is perfect for you – departing from Maun at the crack of dawn on a safari vehicle, you’ll head out to the reserve with your guide.   Moremi Game Reserve is home to some of the world’s greatest species of wildlife, and is excellent for game viewing and bird watching. The park contains all major naturally occurring herbivore and carnivore species in the region, and has over 400 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered. As well, both Black and White Rhino, while rare to spot, have been recently re-introduced, making this reserve a “Big Five” destination (meaning it contains lions, leopards, rhinoceros, elephants, and Cape buffalo).   Enjoy a break in the middle for a light lunch before you continue on your exploration, passing around lagoons and pools along the river channels as well as some flat plains. Head back to Maun in late afternoon after a full and exciting day immersed in nature.

Maun: Okavango Delta Mokoro Tour and Bush Walk

2. Maun: Okavango Delta Mokoro Tour and Bush Walk

After pickup from your hotel in Maun, drive for approximately an hour to the Okavango Delta. On arrival at the mokoro station, the punter-guides will provide a brief introduction on the day's itinerary. Climb into your mokoro and head out into the waterways of the delta. Stop by an island and do a bush walk to stretch your legs, look for animals and learn about the local flora and fauna. Animals that can usually be seen include hippos, crocodiles, elephants, zebras, impala, and various bird species. Make a stop to eat your packed lunch and enjoy a refreshing drink. You will then return to the mokoro and start the return journey back to the vehicle, which will be waiting to drive you back to Maun.

Maun: 2 Nights or 1 Night Okavango Delta Camping Trip

3. Maun: 2 Nights or 1 Night Okavango Delta Camping Trip

Day 1 Our safari will depart from Maun at 0700hrs for a one hour boat ride to the mokoro station from where we will board our mokoro for a leisurely trip to our campsite where we will have lunch and enjoy a hard earned riverside siesta moment. It is truly a wilderness and a great soothing experience. You will get to learn a lot about this amazing ecosystem called the Okavango Delta, a UNESCO heritage site. Sunrise and sunset in this part of the world are sights to behold. We will then embark on a 2 hour late afternoon nature walk. Upon return to the camp, you will be treated to a hot camp shower before proceeding to dinner around a campfire. For us, campfire forms a critical part of the experience. We will share our heritage with you and you will share yours with us. A telescope will enhance your experience of the night under the stars. You will then retreat to your tent equipped with a stretcher bed, a veranda and an attached bathroom with flush-able toilet, shower and sink. Day 2 Rise and shine and say hello to a fresh morning over coffee, tea and rusks! We will head out for a 3 hour early morning nature walk and come up close and intimate with nature. This is a highly recommended experience to start your day by connecting with nature. It is believed that this sets the tone for the rest of your day as you become one with the environment. Upon return at around 10am you will be treated to a filling brunch. You will then relax and enjoy siesta moment in the peaceful Delta. Once you have had a good rest we will head out for a 3 hour mokoro trip arriving back in camp just before sunset. Some guests have meditated along the cruise, some have fallen asleep, while some have been perplexed about the entire experience. Your story is yet to be told… Upon arrival, you will treated to a hot shower in the privacy of your en-suite tent and proceed to enjoy your campfire dinner. By now you and your guide will be the best of friends after 2 days of good bonding. Day 3 Rise and shine to say goodbye to the most amazing landscapes with great memories to carry away. But you are not done yet, as we will once more embark on a morning nature walk for 3 hours, depending on your fatigue levels. Upon return at around 10am, you will have your last brunch before relaxing in the camp. There might be an opportunity to take a dip in the waters, safety permitting. At this time you will be just one but part of the ecosystem. After such a once in a life time experience, we will head back to the mokoro station, on our mokoro as we consolidate our delta experience, where your engine powered boat will pick you up for a trip to Audi Camp and onward transfer to your hotel.

We had a wonderful time with professional staff from pickup to drop off. Poler Jack was a treat and the two guides, one by road and one by boat some of the best we have had. To be recommended.

Well guided dugout tour. Tour was a little shorter than described in the information. Second guide could not speak English
