One of my favourite places! Loved the delta waterways and our rustic camp set in the bush. We took a bush walk, swam in the delta, sat by the fire at night and enjoyed a song and dance performance by our local guides. Of course we were also poled around in Mokoro canoes, which was the best part for me, and I got to try the stand-up poling out myself. It was a really special experience!

We planned a 18 day trip in Botswana incorporating the Kalahari Desert, Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls, Zambezi river on our itinerary. We used Bush ways for most of our trip and they were excellent, we travelled in July( coldest time) and we were camping with Hippos around us at night and elephant herds heading for the waterhole, superb adventures. We started off in luxury in the Tao pan which in wet season is alive with game, we were there in dry season but the lions were still there in huge numbers we saw over 20 in 3 days!! No walking from restaurant to your room after dark because they were around as the paw prints at dawn proved. We arrived as time when flood waters from the Delta flooded dry river beds which had not seen water for 30 years, we stayed with German guy in Maun for our first night in Botswana and returned 4 nights later after the Tao Pan trip to find water levels risen 2m and his dining room flooded, fortunately the bar was on higher ground so BBQ and beers all round. Paddling to Islands in the Okavanga Delta were a revelation, chasing hippos in dug out canoes at dawn!! We cooked our food over open fire collecting wood as we moved around in our group of 11 people

The a Okavango delta is a very beautiful place to be and peaceful. I love it because of the nature and it is now a popular tourist destination. It is home to 71 fish species, the delta also includes over 400 different species of birds and it is home to over or majority of large mammals estimated to be 200,0000 in and around the delta.

TRULY a holiday of note. We flew into Maun in our own small sports aircraft so got to see the Delta from the air. Breath taking.

We stayed at Nguma Island Lodge right in the heart of the Delta in surprisingly, very comfortable tents.

Food at the lodge was spectacular, and not overly priced. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. If you want to experience Africa, this is the only way to do it. We also spent a day in Maun "city" and a more african experience you will not get. Loved every moment of this trip and woudl HIGHLY recommend it to people wanting a TRUE African Experience.
