Cruise through the Delta
The Okawango Delta is located in Botswana and is somewhat unusual because it's not near the sea. The Okawango River dissipates in the interior of Botswana, separating into dozens of smaller tributaries. Your main form of transportation in the Delta is a "mokoro," a small wooden boat propelled with a wooden stick. The Mokoro drivers are the gondoliers of Africa. We couldn't resist the chance to take a cruise through the Delta and see animals like elephants and hippopotamuses. The best part was setting me feet up on the edge of the boat and watching the sunset over the Delta.
