We set off from our Okavango camp’s lagoon-side dock, slipping into a mokoro, a slim craft ideal for wending the channels of the Delta. Our guide, who magically knows his way around this lush maze, works his pole expertly. He quietly alerts us to a big Nile crocodile motionless in the papyrus reeds. A little while later, an elephant bubbles out of the water in front of us; she’s polite, but as surprised as we are.
Birds zoom by overhead. Hippos grunt and yawn in a small lagoon. Comely red lechwes drink the Delta’s clean waters, and in the near distance we see a flock of impalas, finely tuned as Swiss watches, as they spring and gallop bewitchingly.
Like every single one of us at African Sunsets, every visitor is a fervent fan of the Okavango.
