'Wet and wondrous' location is ideal for adventure holidays
Travellers planning adventure holidays in Africa should consider visiting Botswana as the country's Okavango Delta is 'wet and wondrous' according to a travel writer.
In an article in Wanderlust magazine, Dale Morris praised the area as a uniquely perfect destination for adventure holidays.
He writes that "there is no place in Africa, perhaps even the world, that embodies the spirit of wilderness and wildness" as the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
An element of travel which is impossible to get from guidebooks for friends' photographs is the auditory nature of places. Mr Morris attempted to explain the musicality of the Okavango Delta.
"I looked at the elephants … and I looked at the eagles, who had started eating their fish," he said.
"A lion roared somewhere close by; a hyena giggled in response. A hippo snorted and the elephants played a mariachi tune."
The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world; it covers an area of around 15,000 kilometres squared.
