On our way to the Okavango our guide confessed that his dream would be to end up reincarnated as an elephant in the delta. About 2 minutes after we arrived all 19 of us on our tour were feeling the same way. This place is beautiful! I mean, seriously stunning. If you visit anywhere in Botswana, this has got to be it. Chobe National Park is fantastic and the Kalahari Desert is breathtaking, but visiting the Okavango Delta was on another level entirely.
When you only have 25 days of annual leave for adventures, deciding on where to head for your next trip when you have ambitions of exploring as many countries as possible can be a challenge. Even harder in our experience when you’ve had a full year off to travel as you please and need to get used to using as few week days as possible to travel as much as you can!
