In summer the flood arrives from the highlands of Angola and forms a huge network of water channels and inlets which are eventually soaked up by the Kalahari Desert. The floods reach their peak in May and then gradually subside. The constant change in water levels results in a remarkable variety of habitats and landscapes. The region contains the state-run Moremi Game Reserve surrounded by a number of strictly-controlled, privately managed wildlife concessions which are arguably quieter and more exclusive. There are no fences between these areas so the wildlife viewing is equally as good, the only difference being that game vehicles are allowed 'off road' in the private concessions and night drives are permitted. In full flood the Delta becomes a birding paradise with many rare bird species such as the Pel's fishing owl and the Slaty Egret.

The delta is synonymous with luxury accommodation. The camps and lodges in the area are renowned for their exclusivity and private safari experiences. In addition to traditional game drives you can explore the water channels of the largest inland delta in the world by boat or traditional mokoro canoes.
