Photographer's Note

Magic time in Okavango delta. It is marvelous to go slowwly in mokoro, without making any noise, observing crocs, hippos and elephants in shallow water. and it was possible to swim :).

The Okavango Delta is one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries on Earth. Its extraordinary range of habitats are home to great herd of antelopes, zebra, buffalo and elephants, hippos and crocs - who rule the waterways - and lions, leopards, cheetahs and all the other carnivores which prosper in this safari paradise.

The Okavango is a unique ecosystem of papyrus-lined waterways, knee-deep floodplains, water-lily lagoons, shady forest glades.

Activity highlights of the Okavango Delta include being poled in a mokoro (dugout canoe) through lagoons crammed with water lilies and hippos.
