"The Okavango Delta (or Okavango Swamp), in Botswana, is the world's largest inland delta. “ "Where all this water goes is a mystery", Aurel Schultz, 1897 ” The area was once part of Lake Makgadikgadi, an ancient lake that dried up some 10,000 years ago. Today, the Okavango River has no outlet to the sea. Instead, it empties onto the sands of the Kalahari Desert, irrigating 15,000 km² of the desert. Each year some 11 cubic kilometres of water reach the delta. Some of this water reaches further south to create Lake Ngami. The water entering the delta is unusually pure, due to the lack of agriculture and industry along the Okavango River. It passes through the sand aquifers of the numerous delta islands and evaporates/transpirates by leaving enormous quantities of salt behind. These precipitation processes are so strong that the vegetation disappears in the center of the islands and thick salt crusts are formed. The waters of the Okavango Delta are subject to seasonal flooding, which begins about mid-summer in the north and six months later in the south (May/June). The water from the delta is evaporated relatively rapidly by the high temperatures, resulting in a cycle of cresting and dropping water in the south. Islands can disappear completely during the peak flood, then reappear at the end of the season."

Gnomon :
"Elbrus is the biggest mountain in Europe. It's in the Caucasus mountains, between the Black and Caspian Seas. The Okavango is a river in Botswana."

"Mt. Elbrus is a peak located in the western Caucasus mountains, in Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay-Cherkessia, Russia Xi River is a commercial waterway of southern China. Starts in Guandong Province The Okavango Delta (or Okavango Swamp), in Botswana, is the world's largest inland delta"
William H :
"How about spending your time actually using the internet to find information instead of asking others to do it? Mt. Elbrus, check the URL. Ask.com took only about 5 seconds to return a bunch of sites. I'm confident that it will also provide sufficient information to identify the location of the other two."

We're talking about an almost “Jungle Jim” type setting and the Okavango certainly won’t let you down in those respects. Home to an inland waterway wonder, the Delta is host to a great diversity of wildlife.

Situated in the Okavango Delta of Botswana, the Jao camp is surrounded by the Jao Reserve and skirts the border of the Moremei Game Reserve. This is one of the must see areas on an African safari. Combining a wilderness experience with the accomodations of the camp makes for a perfect adventure holiday.

The Okavango area was once part of Lake Makgadikgadi, an ancient lake that dried up some 10,000 years ago. The Okavango delta appears like a giant outstretched hand, spread over the thirsty earth of the Kalahari, with its many streams caressing the earth perhaps trying to rekindle a long forgotten 10,000 year old relation.

A walking safari in Africa and particularly Botswana will always be regarded as one of the top and finest ways to explore the wilderness of Africa.
