7D/6N Safari in the heart of Okavango Delta, Botswana (Overseas Trip led by NSS Member)


Date : 02 Feb 2020 - 08 Feb 2020
Time : All Day Event
Location : Okavango Delta, Botswana

Open to public - Registration Needed

Botswana's Okavango Delta is one of Africa's last remaining great wilderness habitats providing refuge to huge concentrations of game. A UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, the Okavango is an important protected wildlife area. The Okavango Delta is a large alluvial fan or ‘inland delta’ in north-western Botswana. The area includes permanent swamps covering approximately 600,000 hectares along with up to 1.2 million hectares of seasonally flooded grassland. It is one of a very few large and near pristine inland delta systems without an outlet to the sea but drain instead into the desert sands of the Kalahari Basin. At the heart of the Okavango Delta, lies Khwai Private Reserve with over 200,000 hectares of pristine wilderness - three times the size of Singapore. The landscape is one of the most diverse in Botswana with floodplains, savannah and mopane clusters jostling for space with riverine forest, acacia woodland, seasonal waterholes and winding channels leading from the mighty Khwai River. At the north of the reserve, with nearly 10,000 pachyderms in the area, Hyena Pan attracts the world’s largest population of elephant. At The Jackal & Hide, the landscape is quintessential Okavango with vast floodplains and sprawling grasslands meeting patches of forested enclaves, and through it all runs an intricate network of channels and lily-filled waterways.
