The deltas deep waters and languidly moving streams as well as the ox-bow lakes and islands of pristine wilderness remain much the same throughout the year.
The Okavango Delta is one of Africa’s last remaining true wilderness areas and provides a refuge for huge concentrations of wildlife. The 2-million-hectare (4,9-million acre) Okavango Delta is known as the “jewel” of the Kalahari and is clearly visible on satellite images as a bright blue and green patch against the drier desert landscape. It is undoubtedly one of Africa’s most extraordinary places and was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. Humans have had very little impact on the Okavango, with the indigenous communities who live on its fringes following sustainable lifestyles that have long preserved the integrity of the Delta’s many different habitats.
