These flat bottomed, dug out canoes are a different way to see the Okavango Delta. You can pass through the lily beds so smoothly that you barely disturb the flowers, let alone the wildlife.
Great if you want to see something like the elusive sitatunga - a small deer-like mammal light enough to live on the waterways' foliage; potentially terrifying when you run into the crocs or hippos that lurk around.
Memorable either way.
Our camping trip was organised through Jolly Boys Backbackers. Quite basic but so much to see it hardly mattered. All food and drink provided for. Elephants walked through our camp on the last night - quite an experience.
Chobe is full of water so the herds of elephants are a sight to behold taking you back to a pre-historic era. Also many hippos and the lions are strong due to the amount of prey available. Some beautiful birdlife too - lilac crested rolo's, fish eagles. The baboons are also fun to watch as well.
