Enjoy a breathtaking flight in your own private aircraft 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.
Depart from Maun Airport. 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 breathtaking.
Sightseeing from a small plane on a scenic flight will give you the ultimate view of the Okavango Delta’s spectacular geography and wildlife. There’s no better way to grasp the outstanding beauty of the Okavango Delta region. Once the flight is complete, the plane will land at Maun Airport where the activity started.
