Originally cut by hand from a single log, nowadays many are moulded from fibreglass to conserve the precious stock of local hardwoods. Although a mokoro looks anything but stable, in fact it is an extremely safe and reliable craft.
You set off, two people to a mokoro, poled by a skilled Tswana guide who will act as your eyes and ears until you attune to this unfamiliar watery environment. You navigate the maze of creeks and narrow channels, slipping silently through the beds of reed and beautiful papyrus fronds, past islands covered with palm trees. As you travel, you will see numerous birds and may encounter red lechwe (a rare type of antelope) or even elephant browsing in the water. The delta area is populated with hippos but you will journey through shallow waterways to avoid contact. Please advise your guide if you cannot swim. After pitching camp, you set off on a short walk and learn more about this unique habitat. For the next two nights you camp wild on a remote island in the delta, enjoying the seclusion and the sense of escape. In addition to your mokoro journey you will be able to enjoy bush walks, swimming and the birdlife in this pristine wilderness area You fall asleep to the sounds of frogs croaking and may hear the distinctive sound of hippos or hyenas ‘laughing’ in the distance. Tented camp – 3 nights (Bx3 Lx3 Dx2)
