The Okavango may well be a wetland but there are hundreds of islands that host a wide variety of wildlife. The islands range in size from the huge Chief's Island to termite mound islets. The islands are generally comprised of floodplains and woodland.
In amongst these dry spots is a vast area of waterways inhabited by hippo, crocodiles, elephants and antelope.

4 Day Classic Okavango Delta Safari
The Okavango can be visited year round, although to see the delta at its peak water levels the dry winter months are the best time to go. The water reaches it high mark generally in July - September.
In the summer months - November - March - the delta is spectacular in its new growth and it is the time when the antelope drop their young.
For birders the summer months are the time when the migrants are in numbers.
