Okavango Delta, Botswana

The Okavango River’s crystal clear waters are home to a variety of fish as well as crocodiles, hippopotamus and otters. They also support an abundance of bird life. Several species of bird are rare and endemic to the area. Guests to the area also have the chance to glimpse a sighting of the rare and elusive Sitatunga antelope.

“The Barbel Run”

The “Barbel Runs” are certainly the highlight of the angling year on the Okavango River, yet they still do not over shadow the excellent fishing on offer during the remainder of the year. Part of the attraction to the wild waters of the Okavango is the variety of fish species available to the fly-fisherman and conventional fisherman alike.


Accommodation on the Kubu Queen Houseboat includes 2 x double bedded cabins down stairs and 2 x single sleepers in an outside open air bedroom upstairs. The two upstairs couches can also be converted into sleepers to accommodate bigger groups.
