An exciting year-round paradise of wildlife and water

Botswana’s Okavango Delta North is an exceptional safari destination that has all the highlights of the Okavango plus a few that are unique to just this area. With year-round water, the northern part of the Delta is a splendour of meandering channels, dreamy lagoons and lonesome islands to explore, not to mention a high wildlife density. Moreover, most of the camps within its bounds are water-based, remote, and only reachable by boat or plane, a testament to the exclusivity of the area. Its close proximity to the Khwai and Linyanti areas, as well as Namibia’s Zambezi Region, means Okavango Delta North can easily be combined with another top destination in one exciting trip.

Best time to go to Okavango Delta North

Okavango Delta North is a fantastic year-round destination, with each season offering something new and exciting. The Dry Season is between June and October, and this simply means the rains have come to an end. During this time, expect lovely warm and sunny days followed by cool nights. November to March, on the other hand, can mean days are hot, humid and rainy. This is the best time for bird-watching as seasonal vagrants are around. In addition, the bush is full of various newborn animals, in addition to an increase in predator activity.
