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.
