Renowned for its lush waterways and abundant wildlife, the Okavango Delta Region, the glittery jewel of Botswana, is one of the world’s largest inland water systems and is Botswana’s most famous and popular region for safari.
Millions of years ago the Delta once flowed into what is now known as the Makgadikgadi Pans, but due to activity in the earth’s crust, plates uplifted causing a break in the layers of rock interrupting the flow of the river causing it to backup and create what we see today.
This transformation has created an unparalleled system of waterways and channels that support an extraordinary kingdom of flora and fauna with groves of wild date palm, papyrus and water lilies lining a riverine forest.that would have otherwise been a flat, dry grassy desert.
The Okavango Delta is in a constant state of flux, expanding and contracting according to the rainy season. While about one third of the Delta remains permanently flooded, others are only deluged during the rainy season from May to September creating islands of all shapes and sizes.
