Get to Know Northern Okavango

Catch a tigerfish, watch a fish-eagle and get lost in a green labyrinth of papyrus.

The northern part of the Okavango Delta often gets overlooked in favour of Moremi and Chief’s Island. While this part of the delta may not have the abundance of game that occurs in the south, it’s a prime region for angling and fishing – especially tigerfish and bream. Wake in the morning to the crystal-clear call of an African fish-eagle, then cruise down the labyrinth of papyrus-lined waterways in a fishing boat while kingfishers and cormorants dive between the reeds.

FAQs about Northern Okavango

If you'd like to experience a mokoro ride (a dugout canoe) through the waters of the delta, then its best visited during the wet months of June to August. Game viewing is excellent during this period as many wildlife will migrate during this period. The dry months of September and October are also excellent months to visit the delta. Game viewing is consistent during this period, as the wildlife will congregate around water sources - ideal for budding photographers.
