OKAVANGO DELTA AND MOREMI NATIONAL PARK

The Okavango Delta carries the title of the world’s biggest inland delta. It was born during the early Holocene, a geological period that started almost 12 thousand years ago, when geological activity and tectonic shifts caused the ancient giant Lake Makgadigadi to dry up. Although the Okavango Delta is in Botswana, the source of its waters starts in the western part of Angola. The Cubango River flows into Namibia (where it’s called the Kavango River) and then into Botswana, where we know it as the Okavango River.

The ecology of the Okavango Delta is fragile, and revolves around Angola’s annual rain season from October to April. The resulting flood water is fed into the Delta, but because the terrain is relatively flat, it is a slow process. The floods therefore only reach the lower part of the Delta, near Maun, in July. Eventually, the water flows via the Botetle River and ends up in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, where most of it evaporates.

With the coming of the floods, life returns to the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Elephants, lions, wild dogs, hyenas, buffalos, rhinos, hippos and crocodiles, as well as antelope such as sitatunga and red lechwe join the smaller animals (bush babies, monkeys, warthogs, tree squirrels and spotted genets) on the mainland and on the various little islands of the Delta. The best time for game viewing in the Okavango Delta in Botswana is from May to October, while birding is at its best from November to April. See the African Fish Eagle (with its evocative cry), crested crane, sacred ibis and many more in their natural habitat. The Okavango Delta is also a fisherman’s paradise, with approximately 71 species occupying its waters. Here you can land a prize tiger fish or bream and experience the annual barbel run.

No visit to the Okavango Delta are complete without a visit to the famous Chobe National Park in the Nort West of Botswana. There are numeous lodges and hotels in the Chobe and Kasane region but only a few as affordable as Toro Lodge in Kazangulu only 8 km from the main entrance gate. From Toro is is only 85 km to Victoria Falls. where accommodation such as A'Zambezi River lodge along the Zambezi River or the newer and more central Kingdom Hotel will be your answer. Most people visiting the Okavango Delta and Moremi combine it with a few days at Victoria Falls. There are regular flights between Maun and Ksasne which is only 80 km from Victoria Falls. If you decided to include another Zimbabwe destination in your Okavango Delta - Victoria Falls holiday concider the Eastern Highlands where the Troutbeck Inn hotel and resort near Nyanga will be a popular choice.

If you arive in Botswana on an international flight you can land in either Maun and Gaborone. If you land in Maun you will be at the Okavango Delta but if you land in Gaborone you might need accommodation for the first night. Consider the Big Five Lodge just outside the CBD. They are really affordable.

If you do a self-drive to Botswana from Cape Town you will need accommodation onroute. The Kambro self-catering ( self contained ) accommodation offers affordable accommodation on a farm near Britstown. A very pleasant trip is to drive via Upington in the Northern Cape along the Trans Kgalagadi Highway to the Okavango Delta. If yoiu choose this route you can overnight in lodges such as Kalahari Monate lodge or Upington Country Lodge in or near Upington about alfway between Cape Town and Maun which is the gateway to the Okavango Delta. You can also drive via Namibia in which case Grunau Lodge will be about halfway.

The King David Hotel is a five star hotel in the city of East London in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
