Expedition Blue Planet:Okavango, Miracle of Water

Okavango, Miracle of Water
05:24 | 2009

Categories: Documentary, Science and Environment, Shorts

Often called the 'Cradle of Life' for its role in the origin of the human species, the Okavango in Botswana is the largest inland delta on Earth. Renowned for its diverse wildlife, which includes zebras, antelope, elephants, and Cape buffalo, the Delta is a unique ecosystem, drawing water from thousands of miles away through the desert sands to a veritable oasis. During the dry season, animals migrate from the nearby Kalahari Desert, causing the wildlife population supported by the delta to climb some tenfold.

In spite of the Okavango Delta, Botswana does not have unimited water resources. In this film, the team investigates the role of water in the communities and how the country is working to protect the water they have.
