The Namib, a minimum of 55 million years old, is regarded as the oldest desert in the world. The sand here is coloured red due to the prominent levels of iron oxide.

Day15

Maun (Okavango Delta)

Today you will experience a new way of travelling – to go into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro, the same way as the local people do. You will be transferred to the ‘’polling’’ station either with a motorized boat or a 4×4 vehicle depending on the water levels of the Delta.  A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people.  The mokoro is steered by a ‘’poler” standing at the back, manoeuvring the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice.  Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into The Delta begins. Gliding along on the quiet water you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings. The duration of the mokoro trail depends  on the time of year and water levels of the Delta.  You will stop at an island and enjoy a nature walk. Then you head back to Maun, again in your mokoro enjoying the late afternoon sun back at the lodge.

This will probably be the closest you will get to these wild animals on foot.
