Mokoro Boat Trip
Type: Boat Ride
The mokoro boat is the main mode of transport for the Okavango people and the growing demand for the boats within the tourism industry has meant that the production of the boats has become commercialized. Mokoro's are made from the trunks of trees such as Jackalberry's and Sausage trees, although due to a shortage of old trees, many of the boats today are made from fibreglass. The mokoro's are driven, or 'poled', silently through the delta by an experienced guide. While on a mokoro boat trip visitors will have the opportunity of seeing small frogs on lily pads, baby crocodiles hiding in the reeds and even bigger wildlife such as elephant coming down to the water to swim.
