Organisation of Activities
1. Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta in Botswana is without doubt one of the most spectacular natural sites in Southern Africa, if not in the entire world. Covering more than 20,000 km², the fertile oasis in the northwestern part of the country is the largest inland delta of our planet. The mighty UNESCO World Heritage Site is fed by the Okavango River, which once a year floods down from the highlands of Angola into an endless labyrinth of river courses, islands and lagoons. With a visit to the Delta, one of the last natural paradises on earth awaits you, whose awe-inspiring biodiversity will amaze every visitor.
The Khwai Concession is an approximately 1,800 km² area in the northeastern part of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Mopane forests, grass plains, river meadows and blooming lagoons dominate the idyllic landscape. The area goes back to local Khwai settlers and is now managed by the Khwai Development Trust.
Formerly a hunting area, it is today used solely for the protection of nature and biodiversity. The Khwai River runs through the area and is the largest water source for animals in the region. Elephants, lions, antelopes and other representatives of the African animal world can be found here many times.
