Kayak Safaris in the Okavango Delta
If you are adventurous, reasonably fit and would like to experience the stunning Okavango Delta on the water, exploring the endless tranquil waterways and beautiful lagoons it has to offer – then a kayaking safari could be a wonderful option for you!
Kayaking safaris are offered all inclusive and range from a 2 day overnighter to the 10 day Trans Okavango safari (approx. 300km). The Trans Okavango Safari is only run in May, June and July each year. Expect to be paddling 20km – 35km per day (15-20 miles) or more if the group is up to it.
You will be taken out by a trained and very experienced guide, paddling in the most pristine and beautiful areas of the Okavango Delta; leaving behind nothing but the whisper of your kayak passing through.
A motor boat supports each trip, follows the group in safe distance and provides a ‘pull-out’ safety option for an exhausted or ill kayaker. The boat also scouts ahead ensuring safe passage of the trip participants. It also carries the equipment and staff who set up the overnight camps. Camp will be set up to welcome kayakers when they arrive, with dome tents, bedrolls, duvets, bedding and the ablutions. Camp staff will provide a large and healthy breakfast, snacks and drinks for the day, a cold lunch and a large dinner with wine.
Highly recommended are the evening and morning walks on offer, providing the opportunity of a wildlife experience you may otherwise miss.
A kayaking safari can make a refreshing addition to a fly-in or self-drive safari, with no bumpy roads, no vehicle or people noise – just magnificent surroundings and an up close and personal Delta experience.
