3 Days Boat Safari in Okavango Delta, Botswana

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Boat Safari in Botswana

Venture through Okavango Delta with Shipungo Safari & Tours, to Chief’s Island (70 kilometers long and 15 kilometers wide), which is named because it was once the sole hunting preserve of the local chief. Raised above the water level by tectonic activity, it is here that so much of the delta’s wildlife retreats as water levels rise. As such, the island is home to what could be the richest concentration of wildlife in Botswana. It is the Okavango Delta as you always imagined it.

Location

This safari will take you from Maun to Okavango Delta (Chief's island) in Botswana.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is a large low gradient alluvial fan or ‘Inland Delta’ located in north-western Botswana. The area includes permanent swamps which cover approximately 600,000 ha along with up to 1.2-meter hectares of seasonally flooded grassland.

The inscribed World Heritage property encompasses an area of 2,023,590 hectares with a buffer zone of 2,286,630 hectares. The Okavango Delta is one of a very few large inland delta systems without an outlet to the sea, known as an endorheic delta, its waters drain instead into the desert sands of the Kalahari Basin.

It is Africa’s third largest alluvial fan and the continent’s largest endorheic delta. Furthermore, it is in a nearly pristine state being a largely untransformed wetland system. The biota has uniquely adapted their growth and reproductive behavior, particularly the flooded grassland biota, to be timed with the arrival of floodwater in the dry, winter season of Botswana.
