Into the Okavango
"When I discovered the Okavango Delta — I think I’d been searching for it my entire life. It was this vastness — this incredible unending wilderness. I saw what the world used to be without us. And it is delicate — a delicate thing that we need to protect." STEVE BOYES"
About the movie
The Okavango River Basin provides a vital source of water to about 1 million people, 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. From National Geographic Documentary Films, Into the Okavango chronicles a team of modern-day explorers on their first epic four-month, 1,500-mile expedition across three countries to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta, one of our planet’s last wetland wildernesses.
"The person I was when I started this expedition is completely different than the person I was when I left it. I learned to let the ghosts of the past stay in the past. The trip changed all of our molecules. It changed how I see everything, including what it means to be an Angolan." ADJANY COSTA
