This is what a water-wonderland and wildlife paradise look like from 2.5 km up. The Okavango Delta is one of the last true wilderness areas in Africa. It sustains multitudes of species through its web of channels and islands, with large concentrations of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish calling it home.

The Okavango Delta is a year round destination – summer months can be hot, but the rains (normally short bursts of thunder showers in the late afternoon) make this a photographers paradise with incredible cloud formations and the green vegetation giving exceptional colour to pictures.
