Day 7: Okavango Delta

At Xigera Camp we explore the Okavango Delta. The safaris at Xigera are centered on the water, since we are in the middle of the Delta. We observe the wildlife by traveling on mokoros, which are flat-bottomed boats that slowly glide across the water, or on motorboats so that we can venture further from camp. During the day we also set off on bushwalks for an even more personal experience of the African wilderness.
