* '''The Okavango Delta''' is one of the world's great inland waterways. The meandering Okavango River is breathtaking, seen either by boat, airplane or mokoro. The main choices are to go on safari in Moremi Game Reserve or stay at one or two of the many lodges. The animals, as outlined below, the birding, flora and fauna are spectacular. There are some amazing lodges like Oddballs Camp [[Media:www.okavangodelta.info]], and Delta Camp. A trip called the Trans Okavango takes you from the top of the Okavango Delta to Maun.

Go. It's amazing.  Fabulous.  One the most magical places in the entire world. The budget minded can take the bus from Maun to Sepopa. There is now a river taxi that travels daily from [[Sepopa]] to [[Seronga]] and coordinates with the buses. If your timing is off stay at Swamp Stop overnight. In Seronga you can stay at the Polers Trust and enjoy the mekoro trips.

Much of the area is divided into large concessions run by various safari groups.  Development is strictly regulated so that there is little development and lots of wildlife. It is expensive, but worth it to stay in some of these permanent tented campsites.  The guides are knowledgeable, and the accommodations very comfortable.  Wilderness Safaris runs many great camps.  They are all inclusive:  two wildlife rides a day, all meals, snacks and drinks are included in the price.
