1. Safari by Mokoro through the Okavango Delta, Botswana
Explore the Okavango Delta’s labyrinth of waterways, lagoons and islets by boat in a traditional mokoro. Made from moulded fibre-glass and shaped like a canoe, mokoros are propelled through the shallow waters by standing at the stern and pushing against the riverbed with a pole. A mokoro safari offers unrivaled game viewing opportunities, with wild animals coming to the water to drink. With beautiful natural surroundings and top-class game viewing, a mokoro safari through the Okavango Delta is a definite must-do.
