Okavango Delta - how to see it without breaking the bank?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 5 week self-driving trip around Namibia and parts of Botswana. However, we are having great trouble working out the best way to spend 2 nights/3 days at the Okavango Delta. We have heard that staying in Maun is not the most practical and that it is best to fly by light aircraft to one of the many delightful but expensive camps/lodges, however the cost of the flights alone are quite high and then the costs per person per night add up to quite a packet. On top of that are the costs of paying the guides, mokoro rides etc. Can anyone suggest a more reasonable (middle price range) alternative for the accommodation? We have read heaps and contacted an agent in Windhoek, but cannot come up with anything suitable, so any info would be greatly appreciated.
