Recently declared the 1000th World Heritage Site, the unique Okavango Delta is a horse rider’s Eden: as the floodwaters spread down into the Kalahari sands, the herds and bird life follow, and horseback is the perfect place from which to observe them. Combining this itinerary in the Delta with the host’s Kalahari Ride in the desert offers a phenomenal package to experience the best of the fascinating region.
This Delta Ride is unlike any other. Rather than a permanent riding camp, a lightweight mobile camp is transported by a flotilla of mokoros (traditional dugout canoes) poled by members of the local community, who live on the fringes of the Delta and know it intimately. When the water levels are too low for the mokoros to navigate, a train of pack donkeys takes over. No vehicles are involved, and this, along with our working in partnership with the local community, guarantees a genuinely environmentally-friendly safari.
The emphasis is on the experience, the loveliness of the Okavango, and top- level guiding. The riding and the horses are unsurpassed, the wildlife is astonishing and the food (cooked over a log fire) is fabulous. The camp is extremely comfortable with lightweight tents with standing room, fully made up stretcher beds, bucket showers and short drop loos.
