The Okavango Kayak adventure is simply the most unbeatable way to experience Africa. For those with an adventurous persuasion, there is perhaps no better way to experience the Okavango Delta, than by rowing across the entirety of this geographic marvel in a specialized kayak. From end to end. While 2 or 3-day kayaking options are available, we suggest the 10 Day option that covers over 300km from Sepopa, and ends in Maun.

This stunning and unforgettable journey is a once in a life time opportunity. It takes visitors through the heart of the delta, and offers a chance to get closer to the beautiful natural surroundings.

What you'll see and do

This is a customisable trip

Use the following itinerary for inspiration. Remember: all days, hotels and activities can be altered to suit your requirements. A The African Wild travel specialist will be happy to advise.

Arrival to Maun

Upon arrival you will be met by your guide and driver at the airport. Transfer to your Maun hotel for a pre-expedition briefing and early dinner. Get some sleep if you can, your adventure starts first thing tomorrow!

Included meals: Dinner

Transfer to Sepopa & begin the expedition

After an early breakfast you'll meet your driver for the overland transfer to Sepopa. It’s a five hour drive, but offers a great chance for you to get to know the guide and go through safety and orientation.

Upon arrival in Sepopa you meet the rest of the team which includes chef, assistant, and driver of the motor boat. From there you board your kayak; we use the highest standard Wilderness Systems Tsunami 125. You head out from Sepopa and after a couple of hours paddle, you make your first campsite.

Tents supplied are comfortable dome canvas tents. They are comfortable and durable and provide the best comfort and safety while you explore some very unchartered areas of the delta. Toilets and bucket showers are supplied.

Spend your first night sleeping under the stars in the Okavango Delta, one of the lucky few to ever enjoy this unique experience.

We had the most amazing time on our safari organized by The African Wild. Rory was attentive to every email and request. And helped us along the way with so many details that we did not even know we needed. The trip was smooth from the pickup in Maun, to the flights, and the beautiful lodges. We could not have had a better experience. Thank you!
