Welcome to the heart of the Okavango, a world inaccessible by roads and inhabited by some of the richest wildlife concentrations on earth. Not surprisingly, these are some of the most exclusive patches of real estate in Botswana, with luxury lodges and tented camps inhabiting some of the delta's prettiest corners. If for whatever reason you can't stay here, take a scenic flight or, better still, a helicopter sightseeing flight from Maun with Helicopter Horizons.
Roughly defined, the Inner Delta occupies the areas west of Chief's Island and between Chief's Island and the base of the Okavango Panhandle. Most of the water-based camps of the Inner Delta offer mokoro trips through the Inner Delta (roughly from June to October or November), with game drives also a possibility. Some lodges that inhabit islands also offer that rare travel experience of arriving by boat (usually after a short 4WD transfer from the nearest airstrip).
