Camera: Canon EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi); Lens: Canon EF 70-300 IS Zoom; Focal Length: 300mm;

Location: Botswana's Okavango Delta, a magical mosaic of channels, lagoons, and lakes
formed by annual flooding after summer rains in neighboring Angola, is one of the worlds largest inland water systems.
Much of the delta falls within Moremi Game Reserve, established in 1963 following its designation by Chief Moremi.
As such it is the first wildlife sanctuary in southern Africa created by an indigenous tribe.
There are a number of luxury safari lodges in Moremi and the Okavango that offer guests spectacular game viewing by
vehicle and mokoro (dugout canoe).
