The silence you find when you get beyond roads and traffic is priceless. And the sunsets in the delta are unbelievable. It isn't cheap staying in the Delta, but it also costs quite a bit to maintain five-star resorts in the middle of a delta...More

The place of utmost rest and refreshing, it is great to take a boat cruise after a long day of work. Seeing the animals like hippos and birds along the delta gives a piece of mind.

Beside seing all the animal you came here to see you will be able to discover one of the prime birds sanctuary in Africa... The birds breeding place at Thamalakane River Lodge is a must see, almost unique (Beside another one in South Africa).

Yes it is high risk area for Malaria. But it is ok if you cover your body well and apply mosquito repellent. The facilities in Okavango are very good.
