Okavango Delta in Botswana, Africa
Okavango Delta: African Watery Wilderness
The Okavango Delta in Botswana is one of the most unique places in the world for wildlife viewing: The world's largest inland delta and has no outlet to the sea, so there is seasonal flooding of the Kalahari Desert, forming shallow lakes and islands that change constantly.
The best way to see this natural wonder is to stay at one of the camp-site on an island in the Delta (arranged by in advance with a local authorised travel agent) This is an absolutely fabulous setting surrounded by water and animals, including hippos and crocodiles.

Getting to The Okavango Delta in Botswana
Getting to The Okavanga Delta
One route to the Okavango Delta is via Frankfurt in Germany. I flew from London to Windhoek in Namibia via Frankfurt, spending a pleasant night in Windhoek.
The following morning I flew to Maun in Botswana and flew in a Cessna low over the beautiful scenery and startled animals towards the Okavango Delta. This really is a wonderful way to see the plains of Africa and the amazing spectacle of the Delta itself.">

The rest of the journey was by four-wheel-drive and various boats.
