Our First-Hand Experience

Our time in the Delta was magnificent!  One morning, our guide took us on a Mokoro (dug out canoe) ride where we saw amazing flora and fauna as well as tiny reed frogs in a variety of vibrant colors.  The same frogs that serenaded us in the evenings acting as our sound machine at night…lovely!

Outside our over the top luxury tents at night we could hear hippos calling and sometimes even rubbing up against our tent.  Elephants would come through camp in the night and step on the wooden decking and by the time we went to breakfast the next morning, the staff would have already repaired the decking.  One morning we woke to a “swish swish” sound outside our tent.  As we opened the curtains, there before us was a giant bull elephant walking right in front of our deck walking in the water.

Botswana Photo Safari

Your Botswana photo safari will be customized for your personal preferences by Family Expeditions.  Your Botswana photo safari will be remote, uncrowded and luxurious!  The Okavango Delta located in Botswana is the largest inland delta where the Okavango River meets a tectonic trough in the central part of the Kalahari.  All the water in the Delta ultimately evaporates and does not flow into any sea or ocean.  The Delta is produced by seasonal flooding during the summer months of January and February.  Therefore, various parts of the Delta are more productive for photo safaris at various times of the year.

The Delta is perhaps the most unique ecosystem in Africa.  It attracts a vast number of both animals and birds.  It also attracts a wide variety of accommodations from tented camps to luxury camps.  We offer a tremendous variety of lodges in the area and all your transportation from camp to camp is by light aircraft or road transfer.

In the private 125 000-hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana is an enormous, wildlife-rich area which creates an unrivaled atmosphere of remoteness and space.

There are three main features of the Linyanti Concession: the Linyanti River, the woodlands of the interior and the well-known Savute Channel, famous as a sporadic and unusual watercourse. The Savute Channel stopped flowing between 1980 and 2008; during this time it was open grassland, home to a wide variety of animals. In 2008, it began to flow once more, creating a water source that rapidly filled with aquatic life, wide varieties of waterbirds and hippo, amongst other changes. With two thirds of the Savute Channel located in the concession, Wilderness Safaris guests have private and exclusive access to its abundant game.

We would like to credit some of the photos in the photo area of this destination to Wilderness Safaris who is one of our partners in building custom private itineraries.
