The Okavango Delta


As House and Leisure's online writer Kim Grové discovered, the changing water levels of the delta have made it one of Africa's most intriguing places to visit. Here, a thriving eco-system consistently adapts to the volatile environment, promising visitors ample to see and do during their stay. Follow Kim's experiences as she visits three diverse Wilderness Safaris camps in the vicinity, savours the sights from a traditional mokoro, and gets to know the gentle giants of Abu camp, an affectionate herd of African elephants. While travelling across the opposing terrains from the north of the delta back to Maun, she and photographer Patrick Toselli enjoy action-packed game drives, relaxing motorboat cruises, informative walking trails and unique elephant-back safaris that not only give way to raw natural beauty and incredible birdlife, but an expected and extraordinary introduction to the animals of the delta.
