If you're looking for a wildlife and nature experience in Africa, this is not to be missed! The government of Botswana has made efforts to keep the Delta relatively exclusive. This means that most of the lodges, while beautiful, are pricey. For a budget option, you can get really close to nature and take a bush camp and mokoro safari for around $140 for 3 days. I've spent a lot of time in Africa and seen a lot of places in it. I've been to the Delta at least 15 times and it is still in my top 5 African destinations.Recommended for:

Absolutely magical. No other way to describe it. Carefully managed to keep tourism controlled -- means it is expensive but also worth every penny. We never saw more than one other jeep of visitors on our safaris. The lodging is luxurious, the food is excellent, and the people are incredibly friendly.Recommended for:

The Okavango Delta offers one of Africa's premiere safari experiences - and the government of Botswana works hard to keep it that way. Very different from the bush of Zimbabwe's Hwange, South Africa's Kruger, or the Kenya experience - the Okavango seems more still, more quiet, more remote. Not to be missed.
