Okavango Delta, Biodiversity first

The Okavango Delta, one the world’s largest inland deltas, is a unique but fragile ecosystem with a high level of biodiversity and plays a significant role in Botswana’s economy through tourism.

The Okavango Delt is the world’s largest inland river delta.

The Okavango Delta is pristine and its ecological integrity still remains intact. The Biokavango Project aims to  reduce the threat risk regarding the future developments rather than attenuating existing threats to biodiversity..

The “Biokavango Project” is building local capacity for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in the Okavango Delta.

This well achieved strategy involves three production sectors : water, tourism and fisheries, which all depends on ecological services and goods provided by the Okavango wetland system.

The tourism sector contributes directly to the biodiversity conservation objectives in the Okavango Delta.

The Okavango Delta is the spectacular result of the Okavango (Kavango) River flowing into the Kalahari Desert.

This only source  of water during the dry period the Okavango Delta attracts thousands of animals creating one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wildlife.
