Operators in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, including Sanctuary Retreats, Wilderness Safaris and &Beyond, have confirmed that water-based activities are up and running after low water levels affected the activities earlier this year.

“The Delta annual flood has just reached Maun this week and is very welcome, says Botswana Footprints Director, Tara Flory, adding that excessive flooding is not expected this year.

“All boating activities have resumed in the Delta and we are running mokoro rides and boat trips as normal (where available),” said Robert Dixon Senior Marketing & Digital Manager at Sanctuary Retreats.
