Rivers throughout the world form at their ends triangular deltas, where the mouth of the river breaks into smaller streams that feed into oceans and seas. The Okavango Delta, however, breaks out into open land in Botswana’s Kalahari Desert. As the seasons change, so does the delta, its banks flooding and receding with the rain, which creates a rich habitat for wildlife that can adapt to both wet and dry conditions. From crocodiles to monkeys to giraffes and lions, a wide variety of animal species make their home in Okavango Delta.
