Full description
Move quietly through the shallow waters of the Okavango Delta in a traditional mokoro and give yourself the best chance of seeing aquatic wildlife. Visit the eastern delta in a community-controlled wilderness area and enjoy a truly soothing experience. After pickup from your hotel or lodge in Maun, make your way to Audi Camp and board a motorboat near here, depending on the water level. Head along the Boro Channel to Boro Mokoro Station to meet your boatman, known as a poler. Next, hop into your mokoro with your experienced poler, a master of the channels of the delta who is astute in co-existing with aquatic wildlife. Learn about the amazing ecosystem that is the Okavango Delta, and soak up the tranquility of the area. Break up your mokoro tour by setting up a picnic lunch on an island. Marvel at the breathtaking views and take a nature walk before exploring more channels in the delta. When your once in a lifetime experience draws to a close, head back to the Boro Mokoro Station where your engine-powered boat will pick you up for a trip to Audi camp to arrive before sunset. Alternatively, you may be picked up by car.
