Mokoro - Traditional Canoe

Feeling Adventurous? No trip to the Okavango Delta is complete without experiencing this UNESCO World Heritage Site in a mokoro. This is a traditional dugout canoe that is propelled through the shallow waters of the Delta by talented and agile guides standing in the stern and pushing with an Ngashe (pole). You will experience a local tradition that offers an almost silent glide through flooded vegetation, where you can find tiny reed frogs, picturesque waterlilies and various waterbirds with the occasional opportunity to look up at wildlife on the banks of a channel. Your polers will share their local heritage and in-depth knowledge of the area and its flora and fauna. A Mokoro is a unique adventure that allows you to explore areas of the Okavango Delta that are otherwise inaccessible.
Departing from Maun early in the morning, you will be transferred by road to the mokoro station where you will be introduced to your poler who will be guiding you through the permanent waterways. After a short introduction and briefing you will start your mokoro trip, travelling through the waterways until you reach an island set up for lunch. The guides will take those who want on a short bush walk before enjoying a lunch under the shade of the trees. After lunch you will return to the station by mokoro where you will meet your vehicle and return to Maun
