UNESCO unveils 1000th world heritage site

UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee names Botswana’s Okavango Delta its 1,000th World Heritage Site…

UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has officially named Botswana’s breathtaking Okavango Delta its 1,000th World Heritage Site. A natural wonder, the Okavango Delta is a maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife. Known as “the river that never finds the sea”, it lies like a glittering jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert.

&Beyond boasts four exquisite lodges in the Okavango Delta where guests can explore this magnificent World Heritage Site by mokoro (dugout canoe), on foot, on game drive or by helicopter. The landscape is nothing short of miraculous, the game experience truly unique and the sunsets to die for. You haven’t fully experienced Africa until you have spent time in the Delta.
