Mokoro trips in the Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world, and the best way to explore the myriad of water channels is by mokoro. Gliding silently through these channels with no noise pollution is a completely tranquil experience.
Mokoro’s have been used to traverse these waterways by locals for years. Traditionally, a mokoro is hand made by the poler who has used the trunk of a tree and spend a couple of weeks coring out the middle and shaping it to form these vessels. However, you may find that some mokoros are now fibreglass. Regardless of the material used to make these watercrafts, they all provide the same peaceful experience. Sitting on the floor of the mokoro, you will be at eye level with the reeds surrounding you where you will be able to spot reed frogs and dragonflies. Moving silently through the reeds causes virtually zero noise and you may go unnoticed by some birds. This is a great way to explore the delta area and can provide a lovely respite from bumpy game drives.
