We spend 4 days in the park and did a mokoro boat trip in the far north-west of the park. Bring loads of water during the dry season. It was over 40 degrees. Great for bird watching!

The Okavango river has its sources in Angola. The best way to explore the river is to take a mokoro boat ride. For those who can afford it, you can choose to take a flight to the middle of the delta.
