Okavango Delta sunrises are quite a spectacle to behold. It all begins very slowly and then all at once. It starts with the low chirping of the Pied Kingfisher and the steady hum of the red dragonfly. The thick morning fog hangs heavy over the islands, like a lazy winter blanket. A faint crackle, echoes through the plains, as the animals of the delta awaken to greet the day. A chorus of sleepy yawns and deep stretches is met with lively chirping and vigorous buzzing, as dawn breaks across the Okavango Delta.
The majestic African sun delicately makes her entrance. Soft fragments of light emblazon every little drop of dew glittered along the purple blossoms of the rain trees. Slowly but surely the thick fog arouses and begins its gradual ascent to make way for the star of the show.
Strokes of orange, pink, yellow and white dance across the magnificent horizon, tantalising the witnesses of the morning spectacle. Place yourself in a boat on the rhythmic waters of the Okavango river or in a jeep nestled between the thick flora of the African plains, and bare testimony to the awe-inspiring awakening of nature. The Okavango Delta sunrise will pull at your heartstrings as you resist the urge to pelt out the opening song of the Lion King.
