For any safari-mad traveller, the list is not near completion without a visit to the breathtaking Okavango Delta in Botswana.
Not only does it provide you the opportunity to experience nature in all of its untouched beauty but it also gives a visitor an adventure of a lifetime – even for the most intrepid of travellers.

During our recent 4 day Yoga Safari in the Khwai Private Reserve of the Delta we got to see and experience this piece of heaven by road – the hard-as-nails Land Cruisers being your able steed; air – the small 6-seater plans means your fear of heights and small spaces must be checked in with the luggage, but oh are the views worth it; and one of the most popular activities to enjoy in the Delta, the Mokoro – a dugout canoe (originally made from massive century old trees) controlled by your expert pilot and his trusty pole.

On a personal note, the Khwai Private Reserve that we were in really felt like the real deal – the African bush at its finest. Although we were spoilt with amazing sightings, hunger-busting food (although one never {ever} goes hungry on safari) and memories unique to the Delta, two things stood out for me:
1) The landscape and birdlife – this area is a place where you can truly immerse yourself in nature, and as much as the animal sightings are a thrill, the beauty of the landscape is what really gets you!
2) This section of the reserve is staffed and run by locals from the nearby Khwai Village. Calling themselves ‘bushmen’, they really are just that – exceptionally knowledgeable, passionate, soft, humble and beautiful (and in the case of our epic Ranger, Steez, full of witty humuor too!).

Getting to the Delta is half of the fun!

A Mokoro Safari is highly recommended!

Lion cubs, need we say more?

And of course the main reason for our safari, yoga!
