Afternoon mokoro excursion in the DeltaGliding through the water in a mokoro (canoe) is a serene experience. The only sounds are from nature, including this little traveler along for the ride. When the water is high in the beautiful Okavango Delta, this is a wonderful way to explore the neighboring islands. The "trails" through the reeds give a hint of hippos beneath the surface and you might be lucky enough to spot the elusive Pels African Owl in this birding paradise.
