The magnitude and pristine beauty of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, a World Heritage and Ramsar site, can be truly appreciated only from the air. Fed by rains that fall in Angola the floodwaters follow well defined channels into Botswana to form the world’s largest inland delta which is trapped in a basin of parched Kalahari Desert sand.
The best times for scenic flights are usually in the morning and late afternoon when weather conditions are calmer. Experience an aerial view of this wilderness which puts the vastness of this freshwater oasis into perspective. The Delta attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique environment which is made up of deep lagoons, large lakes, meandering channels and small islands. The contrast between the harsh desert environment and the waters of the Okavango Delta make a scenic flight a unique and exciting African experience.
