Microsoft Flight Simulator – Gorgeous Okavango Delta Trailer Shows Potential for Virtual Tourism

Today SimWorks Studios released a new trailer of its upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-on, Okavango Delta.

This one is rather interesting and peculiar. Instead of simulating an airport or a city, it embellishes the massive Okavango Delta area in Botswana, Africa.

It offers 9,000 square kilometers of scenery, over 12,000 animals, nine custom airfields, six detailed camps, and plenty of helipads to help you explore the beautiful environment.

The release of the package is now slated for April 3.

Basically, it’s a beautiful tourist destination for virtual pilots to explore with light aircraft including SimWorks Studios’ own Zenith CH701 STOL.

It’s certainly a different and potentially more relaxing way to enjoy the simulator compared to flying in a semi-straight line from city A to city B.

Natural environments like Africa are quite suited for this kind of low and slow exploration since cities are usually better observed and enjoyed from medium altitudes.

You can see what I mean in the trailer below.

Recently, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, who provided a lot of new info about the present and future of the sim. A few days ago, we also got to hear more, including a trailer for World Update 4 which will feature France and Benelux.
