Enjoy a breath-taking flight in your own private helicopter over the Okavango Delta. The Okavango Delta is a vast inland river delta in Northern Botswana, known for its sprawling grassy plains, which flood seasonally, turning the land into a lush animal habitat. Dugout canoes are used to navigate past hippos, elephants, and crocodiles. On dry land, wildlife includes lions, leopards, giraffes, rhinos, and more.
Conveniently depart right from Boteti Tented Safari Lodge. Take in views of the beautiful channels that meander through the papyrus-fringed waterways, passing palm-covered islands. Gear up for high chances of heart-stopping excitement and big game viewing. Observe how the channels wander through the delta in ever-changing paths as this dynamic water system evolves. The vastness of this pristine wilderness is breath-taking. Soaring up to 1000 feet above the ground then swooping down to a few hundred feet provides completely different yet complementary views of the vast wilderness and the details of its components, including the characteristic smell of wild sage that grows throughout the Okavango drylands. This scenic flight will give you a thorough understanding of the biodiversity and ecosystems that led to the Okavango Delta being designated the 1000th World Heritage Site.
Your knowledgeable pilot offers a guided experience making sure every vista and sighting is perfectly set up for the best shot. They will find and highlight the terrain’s greatest treasures through the completely unrestricted view guaranteed by removing the doors. With many of the Delta’s most remote areas not reachable in any other way, an aerial perspective is the ideal way to gaze onto the vast Delta and its meandering labyrinth of crystal-clear channels. This is a bucket list experience for avid photographers seeking the perfect shot of the Okavango Delta from a unique perspective. First and last light, known as the golden hours, offer the best light conditions to capture the perfect photograph.
