About this book

The Okavango is a dynamic ecosystem that has been shaped by many natural forces. The magical trip depicted in this book illustrates the ways in which these forces influence this ever-changing environment. The Okavango Delta is captivatingly described in three sections that feature the plant and animal life of the distinctive habitats:

Air - the world of creatures that fly and swing from trees is examined from a daisy-yellow Tigermoth biplane that shares the sky with vultures and storks.

Water - the journey continues in a small wooden dugout canoe through drooping papyrus heads and water lilies and ventures into the aquatic environment of geese, hippos and crocodiles.

Land - the adventure concludes with a walk through the delta where we encounter mushrooms sprouting from the earth after the rains, and enjoy spectacular sightings of mammals such as antelope, elephant, lion and wild dog.
