It’s hard to imagine a greater spectacle than Botswana’s Okavango Delta, a wetland oasis in the middle of the Kalahari Desert. The delta is born of a river flowing from the highlands of Angola, never finding its way to the sea. The delta waxes and wanes with the river’s pulses, creating a complex rhythm of life.” —Frans Lanting, contributing photographer for National Geographic magazine
