Top 5 Animals to Spot on Okavango Delta Tours

African Elephant: Africa’s largest population of elephants can be found in Botswana, namely the Okavango Delta, however, in the rainyseason the herds migrate. Elephants are integral to the area’s rich ecosystem as they carve out essential channels in the water to allow it flows more freely and provide other animals with open grassland by breaking down trees in the forests. The African elephant is the largest land mammal on the planet, and it has become an iconic symbol of Africa. To see them close up in their natural environment Is a humbling and extraordinary experience.

Hippos: These humungous creatures might be a little scary with their massive gaping mouths that show off their huge teeth, but to see them in the Okavango Delta is incredible. They also play a large part in maintaining the water flow in the Okavango, which is why they’re so vital to the ecosystem. This giant beast can weigh up to a whopping two tonnes but despite their size, they can hit speeds of over 30kph. The reason you’re likely to see hippos submerged in water during the day is because they need to keep cool from the heat. In the evenings when the temperatures have cooled down, they’ll then go onto dry land to graze.

Red Lechwe: Not quite as famous around the world as other African wildlife, the Red lechwe is a colourful antelope found mainly in woodland, swamps and wetlands such as the Okavango Delta. You’ll see them bounding through the river and often lying low in deep water to escape from predators. But when on land, they can reach surprisingly high speeds that they can maintain for long distances, unlike many other land mammals. As well as their speed they’re also very agile which comes in useful when being chased by a predator.

Rhino: The Rhino has certainly earned its status as it can weigh up to a mind-blowing 7,700lbs, with huge horns that can grow up to five feet in length. Next to the African elephant, the rhino is the second largest land mammal and since being reintroduced into the area, the Okavango Delta is one of the few places where you can see the Big Five in Botswana. Despite its hefty size, the rhino can reach speeds of up to 40mph and can be heard thundering across the land.

Wild Dogs: Also known as painted wolves due to their distinctive mottled coats, African wild dogs are often spotted in the Okavango Delta, since much of their natural habitat has been destroyed elsewhere and they have become highly endangered. Unlike domestic dogs, they only have four toes, large ears, and they are found in close-knit packs. They are known for their agility and ruthlessness, which makes them elusive and respected predators in the animal kingdom.

The whole trip was amazing. The organisation was great, guides superb and game viewing simply stunning.
It was very hot, much hotter than I expected but the activities were early morning or evening which made everything bearable. The wild camping days were great fun, if very basic, but a great experience. Our guide Onary was a fantastic cook and some of our best food was in that wild camp.

Margaret Baker Botswana & Zimbabwe Lodge Safari

Wow! What an incredible trip this was – one of the best I have been on. Yes, there are a lot of miles covered and a lot of time sat on the coach but it is absolutely worth it for the places that we visited and the things that we saw – from the lushness of the Okavango Delta, the tribal villages, the animals that you see roaming free, and the distinctness of the desert. Each place we visited was different to the last and felt like it gave us a good insight into the heart of both Namibia and Botswana. If you like taking photos – you will be in heaven! We saw so, so many different animals and birds, and the landscapes were incredible.

Jo Mildenhall Namibia & Botswana: Dunes & Delta

This 3 week programme was fantastic and delivered on everything I thought it would be.
Made some friends in the process and our tour guides Gift and Ende were wonderful- they really looked after us and fed us some extremely tasty meals ! This trip will be one I’ll never forget.
