Tees are destinations that are often part of our Okavango Delta tours.

OKAVANGO DELTA SAFARI
Discover Africa’s Eden on an Okavango Delta tour with Springbok Atlas. The Okavango River, known as ‘the river which never finds the sea’ spills its waters over the Kalahari Desert sands. And forms the world’s largest inland delta. A spellbinding maze of lagoons, islands and waterways providing an extraordinary 6000 square mile oasis for vast herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra. And hundreds of other species of mammals and birds.
Some of the most rewarding game viewing opportunities on an Okavango Delta safari are water-based, from traditional dugout canoes called mokoros. Or motorboat. Land-based game viewing will give you a chance to walk in the wild on some of the islands under the protection of a professional guide.

Botswana is one of the countries I was most excited to visit in 2018 and it was one of the most unique experiences I’ve ever had. Wild elephants roam the highways, hippos inhabit the rivers and you may even be joined by a baboon. Or two while you cross the border. But the real highlight of our Botswana trip was the Okavango Delta fact.
Although every safari destination is different, Botswana really is one of a kind. It has some of the friendliest people, safest streets. And the people really live at one with nature. It’s a one of a kind trip – and many travelers pay over the odds to experience its uniqueness.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m sure it’s completely worth it. The lodges we saw looked incredible, sprinkled along the edge of the Delta. But at $2000 per night. It’s not something the average human being will ever be able to afford.
Given the sky high prices of staying in an Okavango Delta lodge. It’s no surprise I assumed going on safari was only for rich people. It was only when I moved to South Africa for three months that I realized how affordable a safari could be, especially if you’re willing to self drive.
And while some safari destinations are definitely going to make a bigger dent in your travel budget than others. Botswana isn’t completely inaccessible to people like you and me.
A BUDGET-FRIENDLY WAY TO VISIT THE OKAVANGO DELTA
If you’re willing to put in a little bit of work, visiting the Okavango Delta fact can be surprisingly affordable.
By work, I mean a little bit of organization and forward planning, a fair amount of 4×4 driving and a lot of courage if the thought of bush camping scares you. The good news is it probably won’t scare you as much as it scared me.
OKAVANGO DELTA SAFARI PRICES
One of the great things about the Okavango Delta fact is that, like many African safari spots, you can see it all by yourself. All you need is a 4×4 and enough fuel to make sure you won’t get stuck!
Aside from the car you’re driving, the only cost of visiting is the park entrance fees. Entrance to Modem Game Reserve, where we camped, costs aroun$11.49 per person per day. It’s almost impossible to visit in just one day, but even a 3-day trip will set you back less than $30 in total!
Once inside the park, you have access to all the same roads and trails as the safari companies that operate there. That means you can visit the exact same areas and have the chance to see the same wildlife, including lions, leopards and elephants.
