The Okavango Delta is a freshwater wetland in northern Botswana that stretches some 1,200 to 3,000 square miles, depending on the season. It’s one of the most biodiverse regions on the continent, home to elephants, cheetahs, rhinos, endangered wild dogs, and hundreds of species of birds.  Over the course of three weeks, three filmmakers joined the National Geographic Okavango Wilderness Project team in Botswana as they surveyed the wildlife and ecosystems by canoe.
