Angola and Botswana - April 28th, 2010

The fan-shaped dark green area in the lower right quadrant is the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The Okavango River—formerly sometimes called the Okovango—takes its name from the Okavango (Kavango) people of northern Namibia.

The Okavango River is the fourth longest river system in southern Africa, running basically southeastward for 1,000 miles (1,600 km) from central Angola, where it is known as the Kubango, to the Kalahari Desert in northern Botswana, where the river terminates in an immense inland delta known as the Okavango Swamp.
