From National Geographic Documentary Films, Into the Okavango chronicles a team of modern-day explorers. Their first epic four-month, 1,500-mile expedition to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta spanned 3 countries. The Okavango Delta is one of our planet’s last wetland wildernesses. The team of explorers are guided by a team of experienced Bayei mekoro polers led by the now-legendary Water Setlabosha and Gobonamang Kgetho. The Okavango Delta in Botswana is their home. They also became “ambassadors” of the Delta to the people and remote communities of the Cuito River in Angola.
The Okavango River Basin provides a vital source of water to about 1 million people. It also provides water to the world’s largest population of African elephants and significant populations of lions, cheetahs, and hundreds of species of birds. However, this once unspoiled oasis is now under siege due to increasing pressure from human activity. This production took place over three years with tight collaboration between National Geographic in Washington, D.C. and the expedition team run by the Botswana Wild Bird Trust. Into the Okavango is an award-winning documentary film, having had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2018.
It is only available in South Africa until mid-April. View the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ung4p33bKE
