OKAVANGO DELTA MOKORO TRIP

Experience one of Africa's wonders by mokoro boat. A makoro is a type of canoe commonly used in the Okavango Delta. It is propelled through the shallow waters of the delta by standing in the stern and pushing with a pole.

Every year 11 cubic kilometres or 11,000,000,000,000 litres of water flow into the Okavango Delta. About half is consumed through transpiration by plants, 36% by evaporation, 2% percolates into the aquifer system and 2% flows into Lake Ngami.

The Okavango delta is both a permanent and seasonal home to a wide variety of wildlife which is now a popular tourist attraction.

Species include African Elephant, African Cape Buffalo, Hippopotamus, Lechwe, Tsessebe, Sitatunga, Blue Wildebeest, Giraffe, Nile crocodile, Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Brown Hyena, Spotted Hyena, Springbok, Greater Kudu, Sable Antelope, Black Rhinoceros, White Rhinoceros, Plains Zebra, Warthog and Chacma Baboon. Notably the endangered African Wild Dog still survives within the Okavango Delta, exhibiting one of the richest pack densities in Africa.

The majority of the estimated 200,000 large mammals in and around the delta are not year-round residents. They leave with the summer rains to find renewed fields of grass to graze on and trees to browse, then make their way back as winter approaches. Large herds of buffalo and elephant total about 30,000 beasts.
