Mokoro trails in the Okavango Delta

Mokoro trips in the Delta

Floating along the waterways of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro (or dugout canoe) is a gentle and relaxing way to enjoy the wilderness, flora and fauna of this beautiful region of Botswana.

You can take long trips by mokoro if you want, but most people prefer a couple of hours, or perhaps half a day.

You sit in the mokoros on low seats, very close to the waterline, and your poler stands at the back and poles you along. You don’t have anything to do but sit there, relax, enjoy the invariably stunning scenery and perhaps take some award-winning photographs of waterlilies, reed frogs, and maybe the odd crocodile!  We steer well clear of hippos when we’re in mokoros.

We definitely recommend this experience if you’re in the Okavango Delta as it is one of the iconic and unique activities offered in Botswana.  It's great to combine a mokoro experience with game drives and also walks.

Meras

Being close to the water brought a different perspective to my understanding of the Delta. Staying at Pom Pom enabled me to see & hear the dawn chorus of the reed-dwelling birds AND to hear & see the same in reverse at sundown.

Tony and Ute Brimson

Very relaxing and tranquil.

Barbara McKenzie

A peaceful glide through the Delta. Got very close to Hippos and Elephant.s Lots of birds as well.

John Hughes

We did this 3 times over the two delta camps - very relaxing but also great for photos.
