Sunset Mokoro Ride thru the Okovango Delta, Botswana
Our afternoon adventure was paddling out onto the Okovango Delta in a mokoro for sundowners on a secluded island! Mokoros are canoes that are made from digging out the trunk of a large straight tree and are popular as a means of transport in the Okovango Delta. We had a guide ahead of us on the lookout for hippos, and another mokoro captain who propelled us across the delta. It felt like we had rowed a gondola all the way from Italy to this pristine part of Botswana!
