In Africa’s Last Eden, the great photographer Frans Lanting pays tribute to the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango, “whose very existence in the middle of the Kalahari Desert is nothing short of miraculous. . . . The very notion that a place as wild and untouched as the Okavango even exists may seem like a dream.”

On this in-depth Okavango exploration we have ample time to savor the Delta’s subtle and spectacular sceneries, from shady, pacific lagoons and meandering waterways and riverine forests to some of Africa’s finest game viewing.

Our adventure takes us to a camp in the Linyanti Reserve, where at certain times of the year we can see tremendous breeding herds of elephants. We then fly to the heart of the Delta, where we’ll have a couple of nights of serene appreciation of its quietude and beauty. Flying deeper into the Delta and the floodplains of the Kwedi Reserve, we witness some amazing wildlife interactions (which teach us again that there is the Discovery Channel and then there is real, heart-thumping life). We end with another exquisite camp bordering the Moremi Reserve, with its extraordinarily large and diverse concentration of animals.
