Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia – August 20th, 2012

A thick cloud of smoke hovers over the border area of Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zambia in the upper right quadrant of this image, obscuring most of the land below. Visible near the bottom edge, however, far from the fires, are the Etosha Pan (left), in northern Namibia, and the Okavango Inland Delta (right), in northern Botswana.
