These are our most popular trip. For the budget conscious it’s a perfect way to enter the delta and truly experience the local way of life and to get close to the magic and the beauty that the delta has to offer.
Mokoro trips are based on the traditional Bayei method of traveling through the flood plains of the Okavango Delta in a dug out canoe. Our trips are located around the Eastern delta in conjunction with Okavango Kapano Mokoro Community Trust (OKMCT).
We transfer you to the mokoro station on the Boro River by motorboat (about an hour) where you will meet your qualified community guide.
He will pole you around the myriad water channels looking for wildlife and the large variety of birds which inhabit the Delta.
During the day you will stop at an island for lunch and a walk and then take a relaxing pole back to the station where we will be waiting with a cold beer or two!
If you wish to spend a night or two out camping you need to supply yourself with tents, cooking equipment and drinks, and for day trippers a pack lunch and some drinks. We hire out all camping equipment if you require.
It is truly a wilderness experience. There are no facilities out there as you camp on an island chosen by your guide. He will light you a fire to cook over and if you wish to share your meals with him you can, although they do pack for themselves.
If a full day is too much or time is short, we do have mokoros at the lodge for hire, for a quiet paddle up the river.
