What Wildlife is in the Okavango Delta?
The Okavango Delta is one of the best places in Africa to see the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino). On the Duba Plains in the Okavango Delta, there is a fairly permanent herd of about a thousand buffalo and lions that occasionally hunt them. As a result, you can almost always expect to observe a lion kill in this area. Cheetah, wild dog, lion, leopard, and hyena are the top predators in the Okavango Delta. Large groups of elephants also dominate the area in search of water and food. Springbok, impala, tsessebe, and the rare red lechwe are frequently seen.
Are there Lions in the Okavango Delta?
The Okavango Delta boasts a thriving population of lions, which some claim are significantly larger than any lions found elsewhere. The abundance of buffalo and other prey species creates an ideal environment for these lions to thrive. Here, amid the intricate waterways and landscapes, the Okavango Delta offers a unique habitat that sustains a lion population that often walk and sometimes swim through water.
