Come face-to-face with elephants, lions and hippos as you explore one of the world’s largest wetlands. This stunning 360-degree virtual reality experience is from the National Geographic Okavango Wilderness Project team.

Ride in a mokoro (canoe) as it glides through the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana, one of Africa’s most biodiverse regions.

Join National Geographic Fellow and conservation biologist Dr Steve Boyes and his team on their mission to survey, conserve and protect the delta, the lifeblood of this unique ecosystem.

Allow up to 30 minutes for the VR experience and plan your visit during peak times.

Note: Not recommended for children under the age 13 and people with certain medical conditions; glasses can be worn under the headset, but the focus cannot be adjusted.

Please read the health and safety notice before you book.
