Why Paddleboard & Heli-Safari The Okavango Delta?

Nestled deep in Botswana, The Okavango Delta is probably one of the world’s lesser known yet most spectacular havens for wildlife on earth. 

And what better way to get up close and personal with Africa’s Last Eden’s wildlife than a five-day paddleboarding expedition?

Your ten-day trip will commence with consummate ease - three nights at the exclusive One and Only Hotel getting to know Cape Town and mastering the art of paddleboarding meeting penguins, drinking wine and watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.

Then it’s on to Botswana by plane to experience The Okavango Delta - the unique ecosystem that’s home to African Bush Elephants, Buffalo and Blue Wildebeest, Giraffes, Nile Crocodiles, Lions, Cheetahs, Leopards, Hyenas, Rhinoceros, Zebra and Chacma Baboons. In no time at all, you’ll have forgotten the luxuries of city hotels and room service as you learn to cook your own bush meals on campfires!

What makes The Okavango Delta so diverse?

Its unique ecosystem means all life thrives, from the tiniest algae to the largest warthogs. The only reason you haven’t heard of it is because it’s still untouched by tourism and the outside world. 

Heading deeper into the delta, you’ll spend your nights in the luxurious surroundings of Belmond Eagle Island lodge on Xaxaba Island and your days on safari before we leave you whooping with delight as you take to the skies on an exciting heli-safari where you’ll spy herds of game from above.

We can’t guarantee you’ll see all of those animals, but we can promise that Paddle boarding is the most fun you can have standing up! Click the link for a full itinerary and to book this hair-raising, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
