Okavango Delta

Strictly speaking the Okavango Delta is not a game park or reserve. Nevertheless, it deserves a place in this listing because of its uniqueness: it is one of the wonders of nature, and a spectacular paradise for wildlife. Until recently, it was an untouched paradise, protected from the invasion of Man and cattle by the tsetse fly and by its own size. It gives you a taste of what Africa once was, in years gone by.

The Okavango River, known as "Kavango" in Angola where it rises, flows eastwards into the sands of the Kalahari Desert and spreads over a region of 15,000 square kilometers of crystal clear water channels, rivers and lagoons. Ultimately, it disappears beneath the sands of the desert and creates one of the world's last greatest wildernesses - the Okavango Delta.

Visitors use Maun, close to the Thamalakane River, as the jumping point to explore the Okavango. Accommodation is available in the form of chalets, hotels, tented camps and lodges. In fact, several safari companies take visitors from Maun to the heart of the delta, by air or by car. In addition, fishing, mokoro trips along the channel and game viewing is offered. The park, which is open to visitors throughout the year, offers a chance to see the elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, lechwe, sitatunga, reedbuck, hippo, wild dog and antelopes. Visitors must take precautions against malaria and bilharzia and beware of crocodiles and other dangerous animals in the park.
