Okavango River, Ngamiland East

#1 of 10 in Nature in Botswana
Water Body · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
At Okavango River, embark on a boat safari through a huge wetland that boasts one of highest concentrations of wildlife on the continent. During the wet season, strips of flat desert turn into a seasonal swamp, extending nearly 150 km (93 mi) from east to west. Lodges, restaurants, and tented camps line the shores. Watch elephants nibbling on long grass, hippos wading around, crocodiles luring from the riverbanks, and giraffes and zebras parading in the swamps. If you wish to take a closer look at Africa's big cats, combine the boat trip with a land safari.
