Okavango River and Delta, Botswana
Parts of southern Angola (top left), southern Zambia (top right), Namibia (bottom left) and Botswana (bottom right) can be seen here.
The Okavango River runs across the image just above the middle, before emptying onto the sands of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and creating the Okavango Delta (or Okavango Swamp).
This is the world’s largest inland delta, and an uncommon end for the Okavango River, considered unusual because it does not have an outlet to the sea.
Although the area around the delta appears quite well irrigated and green with vegetation, the true flood period will not begin for another month.
