The Okavango Delta needs no introduction – it is considered one of the world’s rare mega diverse regions and hosts an incredible number of species across the board. Mogogelo is in a private concession on the eastern edge of the Delta, bordering Moremi Game Reserve and offers a piece of this world-famous wilderness to guests who can explore under the expert lead of local Motswana guides whose natural heritage this is. Operating on a private concession means guests will be able to do night drives, and during the dry season, walking safaris are a possibility for those who’d like to explore on foot.
Discover the wild and unique landscape of the Okavango Delta on twice daily game drives, which depart at sunrise in the mornings and again in the late afternoon to overlap with sunset. Wildlife encounters include getting up close with elephant, buffalo, and lion, while the experience of having sundowners at a scenic spot in the bush mid-game drive is an iconic element of safaris in southern Africa.
Heading out on safari in the game viewer after dark brings the night life of the Okavango Delta into focus. Night drives are only possible in the privacy of a concession, making this a sought after and special activity at Mogogelo. Leopards and lions are more active at night, while nocturnal creatures like civet, porcupine, honey badger, and jackal are likely to be seen, so this is one not to be missed.
The game drives last on average 3-4 hours.
We are located in a private concession within the Okavango Delta (NG34). Therefore game drives into the Moremi Reserve are not required.
Currently walking safaris are not offered, however are planned for the future.
A scenic flight over the Okavango Delta is an exceptional experience. Rainwater travels from the Angolan highlands before spreading over Kalahari sands to form the world’s largest inland delta. This expansive wetland teems with wildlife dependent on access to permanent water sources offered by the Okavango. Expect to witness incredible panoramic vistas of this wetland along with an abundance of wildlife sightings including hippos, elephants, lechwe, buffalo, giraffe, impala and perhaps even some predators.
Halfway through your scenic flight the pilot will find a deserted palm island where you can enjoy a peaceful break. Once on the ground, champagne will be popped for you to enjoy alongside views from the ground and further information about the delta from your charismatic pilot. When you have quenched your thirst, you will have another opportunity to enjoy the aerial perspective on your way back to Maun or the camp.
A typical day on safari involves an early wake-up call before sunrise for morning activity, a day spent at leisure and filling up on a good food, and an afternoon game drive departing at around 16h00.
Seasonal changes in Botswana mean guests must pack for very hot weather with high rainfall from October-Feb, while winter months require hats and jackets for cold morning and evening game drives.
The Okavango Delta is a unique ecosystem of papyrus-lined waterways, knee-deep floodplains, water-lily lagoons, shady forest glades and rich savannah grasslands. All this fecundity lies in the middle of the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world - the Kalahari Desert Basin.
