About Okavango Delta

Starting in Angola and never quite making its way to the ocean, the Okavango River snakes its way through the vast flat plains of Botswana, making the Okavango Delta an oasis of life. The landscape there is made up of thick swathes of vivid green foliage that flourish in the abundance of water that periodically overflows from the river on to the surrounding land. During the dry season, the area becomes a sanctuary for the indigenous creatures of the country as they migrate to the delta in search of water. All kinds of animals such as hippos, elephants, big cats and buffaloes seek solace in this vast watery haven.
