Your next destination is Crocodile Camp where we will spend the next 3 nights, situated on the banks of the Thamalakane River in Maun. From here you can discover the Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site and the largest inland delta in the world, created by the Okavango River spilling out over the dry sands of the Kalahari Desert. As the river spreads out it forms a waterlogged oasis featuring countless meandering waterways and crystal clear lagoons studded with water lilies, as well as fertile floodplains and reeded islands that are home to an abundance of wildlife.
You can enjoy a number of wonderful activities such as game viewing, fishing, bird watching or taking an authentic guided Mokoro excursion through this wetland paradise in a traditional dugout canoe. Commonly spotted animals include: lion, rhino, leopard, giraffe, hippos, elephants, crocodiles and countless species of bird.
Then visit the Moremi Game Reserve, ranked as one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa. Covering 4871 square kilometres of pristine wilderness, the varied terrain includes savannah, winding waterways and dense forest, producing a diverse ecosystem which supports an incredibly wide spectrum of wildlife, ranging from large herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra, to rare species of antelope plus lion, cheetah and packs of wild dog in the open grasslands. The birdlife is prolific and includes most of the 550 bird species recorded on Botswana’s national bird list.
