Okavango Delta

Okavango River “the river which never finds the sea”
Huge River delta (> 6,000 sq miles) which drains into the Kalahari Desert
Home to lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, and wild dog. It is in these forest fringes and savanna grasslands that elephants and giraffes can be found browsing with antelope of almost every kind, from buffalo, wildebeest, and kudu, to sable, roan and impala.

The Okavango Delta is unique. It is the largest inland delta in the world, instead of flowing into the sea, the annual flood of fresh water flows inland, spreading over 15 000km² of the Kalahari sand in a maze of lagoons and channels.

The countless islands that emerge from its waterways give rise to several diverse ecosystems which in turn, are home to vast numbers of game and a myriad birds. The crystal clear waters support many kinds of fish and it is a birder’s paradise
