Most travellers start from Maun with their own car. You can also charter airplanes there or go on a tour with one of the flying-safari operators.

Large Nile Crocodiles are present in the Okavango Delta and are the 2nd largest species of crocodile in the world (behind crocodylus porosus) and is a known maneater. Respect should always be given and swimming is not advised anywhere in order to curb any unneeded suffering for yourself or the animal. Lions and Leopards are also present and should always be given extreme distance and, unless impossible, should ONLY be viewed from a vehicle. Hyenas have a bite stronger than any other mammal in Africa (including the Lion) and can be particularly dangerous in packs, show them distance and respect. Elephants, Wildebeest, Water Buffalo, Wart Hog, and especially Hippos can all be very dangerous (in many cases even more so than the carnivores) so distance and caution should always be taken into account.
