9 Things to Do in Okavango Delta That You Shouldn't Miss

August 19, 2017 Etsuko Causey

The world's largest inland delta, Okavango Delta (also known as Okavango Swamp) is formed by the emptying of the Okavango River into the Kalahari Desert at the place where an ancient lake once sat. An immensely wildlife-rich expanse of islands, islets and lagoons (many of which change shape and even disappear with the coming of every annual flood season), Okavango is home to many safari camps, most of which aren't reached by road but rather by small airplane from Maun, the area's main village.

Mokolodi Nature Reserve

Reviewed By keefelakem - Gaborone, Botswana

The place is just on the out-skirts of the city of Gaborone and will give you the glimpse of Botswana Natural Wildlife. If you are in Gaborone and are just tired of the normal city life and would love to interact with nature without spend time on travelling to Botswana natural wildlife places far from Gaborone then Mokolodi is your place. Take a drive to see some of the wild animals and relax over a meal and drinks before heading back to Gaborone.
The tour staff are very knowlegable and will always make every trip exciting by explaning the behaviour characteistics of animals you get to see.

This is a 'must see'. These are the three founding fathers of Botswana, who came to England to ensure the country's future. This imposing statue shows them standing proudly and encapsulates the very best of the people of this beautiful land.

Reviewed By Vuyelwa - Gauteng, South Africa

We spent a day at the park. Rode the train and all available rides, but the rollercoaster was the most exciting. The "beach and water slides" provided a lot of excitement. The food was good and very affordable. The park keeps only five lions but...MoreGood day, Thank you for your review of our facility. Kind Regards, Dewald

A visit to ISKCON temple, which is very close to Gaborone CBD gets you to a smooth start for a Sunday Morning. You can experience the peaceful atmosphere there, enjoy the exquisite Architecture and if you are a believer of GOD, do prayer and meditate. They have recently started the Sunday Breakfast, which is priced right. They offer good vegetarian meal to start the day.

Matsieng's Footprints

Reviewed By ericon991 - ontario

Not really impressive but definitely in a folksie way. The guide we had was full of stories and anecdotes, all very interesting. The footprints themselves are interesting in that no one seems to know exactly how old they are or even who did them. Very interesting rock formations in the area. Worth visit if you get the right guide. The gates were locked when we arrived luckily my daughter had the number for the guide and he came immediately.
