The Mokoro is a common type of canoe used to get around in the shallow waters of the Okavango Delta. The guide stands in the back of mokoro and pushes it with the pole to give clients tranquillity. Traditionally Mokoros are made from dug out trunks of a large straight trees, like ebony, and susage tree but today, for conservation purposes they are more commonly made from fiberglass. It gives the occupants a view of the Delta and a feeling that they are actually floating ever so gently down the river.
