Overview –¬†Okavango delta Botswana houseboat rentals
the delta is a watery wilderness with papyrus-lined waterways, riverine forests and seasonal floodplains.
Numerous islands, tranquil lagoons and crystal clear channels are dotted throughout the delta.

Fishing in the Okavango Panhandle
There is marvellous tiger-fishing, and bream that make superb eating, not to mention pike, catfish and other species.
Each year, just before the floods when the water is low, thousands of catfish migrate up the main channel of the Delta (where they will later spawn) and embark on a mass, concerted feeding frenzy.
