&Beyond's Xaranna Tented Camp is situated near a permanent channel of the Okavango Delta in 25 000 hectares of pristine wilderness that is shared by only 18 guests. The Camp boasts breathtaking views of the channel, providing guests with a water and wilderness experience that combines the best of what the Okavango has to offer. Birders should watch out for the elusive Pel's fishing owl, while the endangered African wild dog and semi-aquatic red lechwe are endemic to the area.
HELICOPTER GAME FLIGHT
Sightings from a helicopter flight at Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp are awe inspiring. Here, a pod of hippos are seen basking in the early morning sun.
That noisy helicopter had to have frightened the hippos. How high up was it?

Surprisingly the animals are not too bothered with the noise of helicopters. Height varies from about 300 ft above ground to 1000 ft above ground. The pilots are very sensitive towards the animals and try hard not to disturb them. I have been very fortunate over the past years to be able to spend many hours in Helicopters flying over the Delta with no doors and taking 1000’s of photos. This is an amazing experience that I would recommend to all visiting the Okavango Delta.
