SWAMPLAND

Although swamp areas are dispersed throughout southern Africa, the most famous is without a doubt, the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

The wealth of fauna here is unsurpassed elsewhere in Africa.

The three habitat types – water channels and laggons; bands of large forest trees and bushy fringes along waterways; and dry woodlands – provide myriad niches for the diversified and specialized fauna.

Birdlife is prolific.
