What a treasure the Okavango is! Serenely beautiful and peaceful, and truly something to protect and enjoy. Lots of animals and birds to see, gorgeous landscapes, and unforgettable experiences. Protect it!

An amazing place. Lots of animals to see. There were several people in our ad hoc group. We had a tour guide with us who was knowledgeable and spoke three languages, including English.

So diverse… from speed boat to mokoro to game drive to horse riding. And a few more….
And it changes, too. So different in Summer or May-July…

The best safari experiences in Africa can be had in the Okavango Delta. Doesn't matter if you are at a lodge, mobile luxury camping or basic camping, canoeing or horseriding, you'll have the best time of your life.

It was amazing to be in such a special place that changes so much based on the annual rainfall and water seasons. Quiet, peaceful, solitary. The stars were amazing!!! It was so fun to camp out in the bush, listening to our neighboring hippos! The makoro rides are fun and the walking safaris were humbling and insightful, though the animals kept their distance. We barely entered the edge of the Delta and would love to go deeper into the Delta next time. Our experience was heightened by the possibility that the Okavango might not get water forever because of increased water consumption in Angola. This amazing place will be greatly changed, so go there now before its gone. Botswana is an amazing country with friendly and welcoming people!

This natural wonderland must be on every nature and wildlife travellers bucket list. The rainwaters flow from Angola through Namibia into this pan shaped delta into a myriad of lakes and bull-rush waterways.

We had an absolutely amazing six-night journey from beginning to end. Mmegi met us at the airport and took us to our pre-Safari destination, then collected us again and made sure we were airport ready… we arrived in Moremi for a 3-night stay, and was met by our guide Lucas, it was nonstop excitement from the word go, we saw a small pride of male lions before we even arrived at camp. and then drove to Khwai for 3 nights. Each location had a different feel and experience. Our Guide, Lucas was extremely knowledgeable and did not pass an opportunity to turn every occasion into an adventure, from spotting and chasing a leopard, not just once but twice! To leading us to a herd of 500+ strong buffalo, not once but twice, different locations. We saw elephants, lions, loads of hippos, giraffes, zebra, warthogs, wildebeest, African wild cat, wild dogs, Lechwe and a rare buck called the Roan antelope. Not to mention all the birds, flora and crocodiles. The best part was 2 mating African rock pythons. The river Mokoro excursion in Khwai was just awesome. I also enjoyed the walking safari.

The camping facilities are fantastic, way more than I expected. Elliot delivered a warm shower to our en suite every afternoon and warm water to wash with every morning. Elliot and KT had our tents and camp cleaned and we had a surprise towel origami on our beds every day. This all in the African mobile bush safari!

Now the best part !!!! the food - was astounding what they created on a camp fire. KK cooked up three course dinners every night plus lunches and warm breakfasts. A freshly baked cake every day, felt like I was in a 5-star hotel! Lucas had wonderful stories to share at dinner time, and around the campfire.

Coming back from a drive, we would be welcomed with a welcome song, smiles, a cold drink and warm washcloths for our faces and hands. And a blazing campfire.

Mmegi made sure we were covid tested before we said our goodbyes…

Thank you Letaka Safaris and team for sharing your playground with us for a short while…

We spent 3 nights on the delta camping and doing a mokoro ride. This is a must experience. The size of the delta is not easy to comprehend. It is worth doing a helicopter flight over the delta as well as boating.
