FISHING
Excellent tiger fishing except for July and August. Bream, pike and barbel throughout the year. The barbel run starts anytime from mid-September and can continue throughout November. Spin fishing tackle is available for hire and a full stock of lures and spinners are on sale.
BIRDWATCHING
Nguma Island Lodge is a birdwatchers paradise covering not only all water species viewed from the boat or mokoro but a full compliment of dry land and flood plain species viewed during island and flood plain walks. Find the elusive Pel’s fishing owl on the numerous islands. Or during the barbel run take a 50 minute boat ride to the main Okavango River through meandering channels literally lined with fish eagle, goliath heron, darters and egrets feeding, forming your own special guard of honour.
MOKORO EXCURSIONS
No Okavango experience is complete without a mokoro ride. Get lost in the Delta being poled on a mokoro (dugout) through papyrus and reed beds to lily covered lagoons and islands, viewing elephant, lechwe, warthog, sitatunga and other plains game in the open, not to mention the birdlife.
BUSH CAMPING
Delta Dawn offers a superb bush camping experience - spend a minimum of 1 night camping on an island in the middle of the Okavango Delta, having been poled there in your mokoro (dugout) through the waterways and channels. You will need your own camping equipment and food for this experience.
