Botswana's Okavango Delta is the world's largest inland delta.
Traditional wooden canoes, called mokoros, are used as a means to travel from the mainland to the various islands within the Delta.
They can hold 3-4 people apiece. And unless you want to go for a swim, it's best not to move around much while you're on the water.
During my 3-day camping trip in the Delta, I had the chance to play around with one.
Pushing the mokoros by pole, and steering them through narrow, weed-free paths is not an easy task.
Luckily, we had local guides to help, allowing us to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery.
