The Okavango Delta is famous as one of the world's great wetlands, the wealth of birds found in this magical place drawing thousands of tourists there every year. Some 450 species have been recorded in and around the delta, and Birds of the Okavango highlights 50 birds of the Okavango including the more common species, 'specials' and a few that are simply spectacular.
Aquatic species are particularly well represented as there is arguably no better place in Africa in which to see such a wide variety of storks, herons, egrets, ducks, geese and kingfishers.
The Okavango Delta has been divided into several regions: the Panhandle, permanent swamps, seasonal swamps, woodlands and its south-eastern bird-rich appendage, Lake Ngami. Birds representative of these regions are depicted by spectacular photographs and described with informative text. Birds of the Okavango portrays a visual celebration of a selection of the Okavango's wonderful bird life.
