The Okavango Delta in Botswana

Each year, floodwaters from Angola flow more than 600 miles and drain into the desert sands of the Kalahari, creating a spectacular wilderness sanctuary that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Okavango Delta’s 5,700 square miles of channels, lagoons and islands form the basis of Botswana’s tourism industry — a desert wetland that’s hard to imagine. It’s home to wildlife not often seen elsewhere. The variety of flora and fauna means excellent game viewing year round. Excursions — often luxurious and expensive — offer unobtrusive insight to this pristine ecosystem of permanent swamps and seasonally flooded grassland. It’s one of the few large inland delta systems without an outlet to the sea. In this video, Ramiro Schejtman takes you on a journey through the delta.
