We recently returned from an epic experience in the Botswana bush in Southern Africa. This part of Africa is dry forest and depends on seasonal rains in neighboring countries (Angola & DRC) to fill the Okavango River delta and nourish the northern reaches of the Kalahari Desert. We were fortunate to make a river journey in canoes down a stretch of the Okavango system that only floods once every thirty years and therefore is very wild. We camped on the side of the river each night. Incredible scenery and exotic African wildlife truly in in its natural habitat.
