Tour's Location

Botswana Okavango Delta

why spend only a night in the Okavango Delta Islands?

The tour can be any number of nights/days the guests request, but they are limited activities in a mokoro tour because one will be around water in a wildlife island. More days then 3 days will mean a repeat of the same activities of mokoro ride and walking safari that can be covered in just one day. More days are best for guests that want to do research or want to have more peaceful days in silence in the wild to read or write in the company of roaming wildlife and bird songs.
