Few wingshooting experiences can match Botswana's Okavango, an immense delta laced with lagoons, islands and endless grassy plains. Many destinations offer high volume shooting, however, at the Okavango you are likely to have a parade of elephant, lion and other game parading through the waterhole during your shoot.
Enjoy shooting a huge variety of wild birds under wild African skies - dove, francolin, helmeted guinea fowl and dove. Take a few extra days and move to the Kalahari for the best sand grouse shooting available if you happen to be travelling in season.
