WHY WE LIKE IT
Out of the air, opportunities to explore the delta are numerous. Game drives, bush walks and boat-based excursions are available at both camps, allowing for exploration by both land and water. The birdlife in this wetland environment is phenomenal, with Kanana Camp offering exclusive access to an impressive heronry. Larger game is also abundant across this fascinating landscape; track down hippos, crocodiles, lions, leopards, elephants and sitatunga antelopes. At night, nocturnal species make an appearance. Servals, genets, civets, porcupines, and – very occasionally – pangolins can all be spotted.
This journey offers a fabulous opportunity to explore one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. Combine some of the best camps in the region with a fantastic helicopter safari experience, for a truly memorable journey packed with wildlife encounters.
