Our Thoughts

Like any other, the Okavango River should flow into the ocean. Instead it takes a wrong turn and ends up lost in the interior of Botswana where it creates the world's largest inland delta. It costs a fortune to hire a guide and explore the delta unless you hire one of the local cooperatives. Botswana safari companies charge more than ones in neighboring countries.

Highlight: The Okavango Delta is considered to be one of the premier wildlife spots in the world.
