You'll then continue driving to the town of Ghanzi, located in the center of Botswana.

As you witness the change in vegetation, you'll know that you've arrived on the very western edge of a natural wonder of the world—the Okavango Delta.
You will reach the Okavango Panhandle, which is a stretch of the Okavango River, situated in the northwestern area of the delta. It flows for approximately 43 miles (70 km) before entering the wetland, and this deep channel serves as the primary water source feeding the delta. It offers excellent tiger and bream fishing, while the surrounding woodlands and the river’s shallow waters teem with a myriad of birds.
Enjoy excellent fishing, first-class birding, boating on the Okavango River, and experience game viewing in the Mahango National Park.
