Itinerary

Recommended for:
Natural world | River cruise | Safari | Wildlife

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world and is incomparable to any other game destination in Africa. The unusual topography consists of both permanent and seasonal waterways, reedbeds, lagoons and wooded islands home to everything from lions, leopards and cheetahs to wallowing hippos and packs of wild dogs. Meanwhile, to the north of the Okavango lies Chobe National Park, home to the world's largest single concentration of elephant, and through which runs the Chobe River. Throughout the year, animals can be seen drinking at the water's edge, with their numbers swelling to hundreds and thousands during the dry season. Explore these two stunning destinations on a tailor-made tour that combines stays in two parts of the Okavango with a luxury cruise on the Chobe River aboard the Zambezi Queen.
