This inland delta forms where the Okavango River discharges and is home to an incredible array of wildlife. It is home to the Moremi Game Reserve, a fascinating national park occupying a third of the delta. Hop in a canoe or watercraft and cruise past crocodiles, elephants, and hippopotamuses. Other wildlife includes lions, rhinoceroses, and giraffes. This dense population of fauna makes the Okavango Delta such a spectacular place to see.
