The Okavango Delta (or Okavango Grassland) is a very large inland 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.


We are boarding a ferry to get to the Delta.

The delta is lush with life.

Here is my campsite, surrounded by hippo dung and some other kind of dung.

Large termite mounds are common in this area.


There is a hippo popping his head out. They stay in the water all day (avoiding sunburn) and come out at sundown.

The boatmen gave us a traditional Botswanian musical performance. Great and unexpected.

A baobob tree.
