The Flooded Desert

The Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa is a world of extremes, its noticeable vacuum punctuated by surges of life. Unrelenting cycles of completely dry and wet, scarcity and flood, dictate which animals can live right here, as well as which will surely pass away.

The Okavango Stream runs central via Botswana from mountains in the north, developing an amazing delta – a permanent wetland in the heart of the desert. It supports a vibrant area of wildlife which would otherwise never ever call the desert residence. This world of water is no ‘risk-free’ sanctuary. All life right here goes to the grace of the fragile balance between the desert as well as the flood.
