“The Okavango Delta is one of the world’s last great wetland wildernesses. Although the Delta has been awarded UNESCO WHS Status its catchments in the highlands of Angola are still unprotected and largely unexplored. Starting in May a team of Ba’Yei, scientists, engineers and adventurers will journey a 1000 miles down the Cuito River, finding new species, exploring new ground, and taking the pulse of this mighty river that brings life-giving water to the Jewel of the Kalahari.” Sponsored by HALO and National Geographic, the Okavango Wilderness Project hopes to lay down the most comprehensive baseline of multi-disciplinary scientific data ever recorded for the Cuito River. Follow the expedition live at Okavango Wilderness Project.
