10 Best Okavango Delta Safari Tours

It’s hard to believe that the Okavango Delta exists in a country of which 70% is dominated by the semi-arid Kalahari Desert. But this vast and practically untouched freshwater wetland supports an abundance of wildlife within some of the most divine natural settings on the entire African continent. With superb safari lodges located in the Moremi Game Reserve (one of Africa’s greatest game viewing destinations) and exclusive private concessions, the Delta offers a safari experience bar none.

"Dependable service for a trip of a lifetime"

When you safari, especially as a group, and you want the security of having a local agency coordinate the logistics and your stays it's good to have Go2Safari look after things. They were flexible to meet our specific requests, whether a camp/lodge or flights. Everything went so smooth. They were very good at handling our group of 6 couple traveling from the states, with a multitude of questions.
