Now, one of our favorite adventure travel providers – Natural Habitat Adventures (full disclosure: we’ve worked with them previously) – is offering the world’s first point-to-point kayaking expedition across 120 miles of the Okavango Delta.

Natural Habitat Adventures Trip: Kayaking Botswana's Okavango Delta

It’s designed from top-to-bottom to be an exclusive and intense trip for a small group of no more than 10 die-hard adventure lovers. The 7-night/8-day trip includes five nights of wilderness tent camping, with a night on either end at a deluxe safari camp.

NatHab’s CEO (Chief Exploratory Officer) Olaf Malver says of the trip:

To meet Africa in silence, broken only by the drip of a paddle, the call of birds and the rustle of wildlife in the reeds is a wilderness experience available to few contemporary safari-goers.

Our Botswana kayaking expedition returns you to the era of the early explorers, when nothing came between you and the African wild except the canvas wall of your tent at night.

This unusual paddling odyssey traverses more than a hundred miles of the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland marsh. Cut by swift-flowing channels and marked with lagoons and islands, the Okavango is a vast haven for some of Africa’s greatest wildlife concentrations””and a matchless safari experience for paddlers.

If that doesn’t make you wanna grab a paddle and get out there, check your pulse. Consider our collective bucket list here at Vagabondish updated.
