... hole. From
there, we could sit behind the fence (which I wasn’t confident would keep
anything out if it wanted to have a human for dinner) and watch all the

Moremi Game Reserve (the only part of the delta that is protected) and the inner delta are difficult to get to and most accessible by charter flights. Besides the few exclusive lodges that operate in this area have truly jaw-dropping prices. The part of the delta closer to the eastern fringe is far more accessible and trips are cheaper and easier to arrange from ...
