Botswana - February 18th, 2011

This image reaches from Angola (upper left) to Zambia (upper right), and to Botswana (lower left) and Zimbabwe (lower right). Several bodies of water and other interesting geographical features can be observed across the image.

Situated in the lower left quadrant is theĀ Okavango Delta, the inland delta formed at the end of the Okavango River. East of the delta are several greenish white areas, the salty Makgadikgadi Pans. North of the delta lies the Barotse Floodplain. East of the floodplain is Lake Kariba, appearing silvery green in color due to sun glint.
