Okavango Delta

Okavango DeltaThe Okavango Delta in northern Botswana is the largest inland delta in the world. With a surface area in peak flood of more than 3 million acres, dominated by permanent papyrus swamps in the north and seasonal floodplains, lagoons and islands in the south, this unique wetland is not only a World Heritage Site, but also an incredibly important breeding location for birds – especially some rare and endangered aquatic species.

Beat about the bush buffalo herd 2.jpgThe area is also home to most of the larger game species for which Africa is renowned, but local populations have the distinction of being uncharacteristically well suited to a semi-aquatic lifestyle.

Traditionally, a safari to this area would encompass exploration for game by car, boat and canoe (makoro) but all of these have their limitations given the restrictive nature of the habitat and the area available for traverse.

Beat about the bush lionness killHelicopters, however, are not confined by these parameters and with the luxury of being able to hover just above tree level and circle immediately over or nearby an attractive scene or game sighting, there is surely no better way to gain a true appreciation for the delta in all its expansive and intricate splendour!

The fact that the doors are removed (don’t worry, you are securely strapped in), also means that the photographic opportunities are superb.

In short, this is not just a helicopter flight, it is the unique opportunity to game view and enjoy a birds-eye view of one of the Africa’s last great wilderness areas that is key!
