A highlight of any stay in the Okavango Delta is a poled mokoro excursion, an activity unique to this region that we are able to offer during the seasonal floods. Cruising on these local dugout canoes has been designed with tranquillity in mind, so just sit back, relax and glide along the meandering channels to the tune of chirping frogs and the hum of the forest, while fish eagles soar overhead and lilies bloom all around. While you can expect enchanting animal encounters – observe buffalo as they lap water from the river, watch crocodiles sunbathe on the banks and spot hippos cooling off in the lagoons – it is the gentle pace and serenity of the experience that will leave a lasting impression. (All water based activities are seasonal and dependent on the water levels of the delta. Children aged 12 and over are permitted on the mokoro activity).
