Mokoro Into The Okavango

Return Helicopter Transfers & Mokoro Experience

Flying at low altitudes over the floodplains of the south-western Okavango Delta will offer an oversight of a complex network of channels and lagoons that allows for wildlife sightings throughout your transfer to our remote mokoro station, where you will be met by your guide. This experience combines breath-taking aerial views with close-up experiences of the rich biodiversity dependent on the water-logged floodplains and papyrus surrounding deep channels and open lagoons.

A mokoro is a traditional dugout canoe propelled through the shallow waters of the Delta by talented and agile guides standing in the stern and pushing with an Ngashe (pole). Mokoro trips offer an almost silent glide through flooded vegetation, where you can find tiny reed frogs, picturesque waterlilies and various waterbirds with the occasional opportunity to look up at wildlife on the banks of a channel. Your experienced guide from the local community will share stories, folk tales and first-hand knowledge of the area’s wildlife as they pole along the unspoiled waterways, reeds and channels of the Okavango Delta. A lifetime of experience means that polers make steering and propelling the mokoro seem effortless, but if you are brave enough to try it yourself, you will soon learn to admire their skills! Before lifting for your return journey to Maun your pilot will serve tea and coffee that you can enjoy in the serenity of the Okavango.

Includes: Return helicopter transfers; departure tax; local guide; mokoro excursion; tea & coffee.

    Fantastisch Vanuit Nederland geboekt per mail. Zeer vriendelijk ontvangen op kantoor bij betaling. Piloot (Tom) heeft met ons twee prima vluchten gevlogen. Wist veel van de delta, van de natuur en wist het wild te vinden. Erg aardig in omgang ook! Tijd vliegt letterlijk om. Het is het geld waard.

    Just wow! Myself and a colleague recently had the pleasure of a flight with Helicopter Horizons over the Okavango Delta. It was the most amazing experience and is something I won't forget in a hurry! I would so recommend this experience to other visitors to Botswana as it give you such a unique viewpoint of the Delta.

    A must-do experience in the delta We did a camping safari through Botswana for 16 days and the helicopter tour was one of the additional options we had. We are so glad we decided to do it. Of our group of 16 people, only 4 of us decided to do the tour and the other 12 people regretted not doing it after. 2 of our guides we able to join us as well and it was a first time for both of them,... read more
