If there is one place you simply must visit in Botswana, it is the legendary Okavango Delta. Located in the north of the country, in the magnificent Moremi Reserve, this vast inland river delta is known for its vast grassy plains which flood seasonally, transforming the area into a lush animal habitat. The best way to experience this watery dreamscape is in a mokoro – a traditional canoe cut from the trunk of the Mogonono tree. Savour the silence as you paddle peacefully along, keeping an eye out for the area’s superstar species – lions, elephants, rhinos, giraffes and hippos – as well as its more under-the-radar beauties - long-legged ibis,
royal cranes and lechwe cobes. For the ultimate experience, set off at dusk when the fauna is more active, and the waters mirror the star-studded sky above.
