OKAVANGO COLLECTION

ÂŤThe Okavango Delta is an astonishing sight: the great Okavango River, rather than flow towards the sea, flows inland, into the sands of the Kalahari.Âť - Alexander McCall Smith

The Okavango Delta in Botswana is a very large outland delta formed where the Okavango River reaches a tectonic trough in the central part of the endorheic basin of the Kalahari. All the water reaching the Delta is ultimately evaporated and transpired, and does not flow into any sea or ocean. The Delta supports an outstanding biodiversity of life including 150 species of mammals, over 500 species of birds, 90 species of fish, as well as plants, reptiles, invertebrates and amphibians. This Collection tries to show you the nature at its best in the more simple way. Welcome to the Okavango Collection.
