Day 15: Okavango Delta

After flying over the Okavango Delta it was time to go through it. We recall Mick and Pat had raved over being poled into the delta in a traditional mokoro canoe a few years ago, and now we were about to it.

... the mokoros and settled down to be transported deeper into the delta.

The mokoro is paddled using only a pole and is the quietest and most eco-friendly way of traveling.
