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.

    Okavanga from a "birds eye-view" An awesome expirience to see the delta from this angle. Our pilot showed us as much as possible but above all respected all the wildlife by not flying in too close. It was out of this world.

    Twice in a lifetime experience! We booked Helicopter Horizons from home and made a reservation for a 1 hour flight with landing in the delta with champagne. I made once a flight over the delta and this was the second time. The check-in plus security at the airport was very easy (take your passport with you) and as we arrived at the helicopter the doors were removed for a better sight and making photos easier.
    The flying altitude is about 30 metres so you can spot...

    Silver Wedding Anniversary Celebrations To celebrate this milestone, we engaged Island Safari Lodge to organize all the activities on our behalf. We wanted the land, water and air experience. I am a very nervous flyer, so they decided to book a Helicopter flip instead. Having never flown in a commercial helicopter before, I had my doubts. On our arrival someone collected us and took us through customs and drove us to the Helicopter. The pilot was very receptive and gave us the full safety... read more
