Traditional Mokoro Safari Holidays

Take to the Water

Botswana is rightly lauded as one of the best safari experiences in the world and its unique network of delta and rivers allow for the ultimate wildlife viewing from the water itself. Board a traditional mokoro to serenely navigate the waterways and hear the birdsong as your poler gets you into prime position for the big game to come to you!

Among the Reeds

Prime Position

Hear the footsteps of big game as you drift through the reeds to the most popular watering holes.

Stop for some sunset fishing

The best time to head out in a mokoro is between July and October, when water levels are high and the skies are almost permanently blue. It may seem bizarre but the delta is at its wettest during the height of Botswana's dry weather season. This is because the floodwaters originate more than a thousand kilometres away in the highlands of Angola.

Expert Guide

In Safe Hands

All our polers on the Delta are members of the Okavango Kopano Mokoro Community Trust based in Maun and know every twist and turn of the waterways and their inhabitants.
