The Okavango River is most certainly one of Africa's last remaining natural paradises. Before disappearing under the sand masses of the Kalahari the river branches out into an immense delta covering ca. 15.000km². The Okavango and the delta are home to some rare species such as the Sitatunga antelope or the Cape Hunting Dogs. The slow flowing and permanent waters promote the formation of intricate Papyrus labyrinths, the growth of extensive covers of water Hyacinths, and the countless Palm groves indicate the ancient roads of elephants.
