A mokoro ride, is a traditional canoe  commonly used in the Okavango Delta in Botswana as a popular mode of transport, and now utilised for game-viewing safaris. The oarsman stands in the stern and pushes it with the pole. A mokoro ride in the Delta is an absolute must-do activity on a Botswana safari. 

All guides learned at a very young age as low as seven years old, making them experts polers. It’s a careful balancing act - the simplest turn or twist could land the passengers in the water. However, this vessel allows you to experience the delta in stealth and tranquillity. Allowing guest to get close to birds and other animals. Experience mokoro rides by exploring Makgadikgadi Pans and Okavango Delta safari.
