Okavango Channels and Plains

Classic Delta scenes and wildlife-rich savannahs

Okavango Channels and Plains sets out to explore the waterways of the Delta as well as the wildlife-rich savannahs of the south-eastern corner of the Okavango in the summer months. This very special time of year is when vibrant floral displays and dramatic skylines provide a stunning backdrop to thrilling wildlife interactions and the explosion of new life: many species give birth to their young.

  • The opportunity to explore by land, on the water and from the air, via walks, day and night game drives, boating, mokoro trips and light air transfers.
  • Exclusive access to two primary wilderness areas in the Okavango Delta.
  • En-suite accommodation with all the comforts and amenities elegantly provided.
