From Angola highlands, Okavango River waters run smoothly before dying in the Kalahari Desert, more than a thousand kilometers away. On its way, already in Botswana, it winds between two geological faults and ends up overflowing in lots of channels and marshes that create an extensive flooded plain, the largest inland delta in the world, the Okavango Delta. A wild life sanctuary that has remained practically unchanged since the appearance of human beings; an aquatic refuge in the middle of one of the world's largest deserts, resulting from an unusual interaction between climate and geology.

The delta acts as a magnet for wild animals living in this semi-desert area and does when they need it most. Elephants, zebras, giraffes, impalas, antelopes in general, lions, leopards, birds of all types migrate to the delta of all neighboring regions; while in the delta area they remain its habitual inhabitants, the crocodiles and the hippos, the first ones knowing of the arrival of a new banquet.

Undoubtedly, the Okavango Delta is one of the wildest and most beautiful scenery in the entire continent.
