It is hot in the Delta, and overcast. The record flood of 2011 has subsided, and the rain has yet to start in earnest. The Cicadas are singing through the heat of the day, and sweat drips into the keyboard of my computer.

Our island camp deep in the Okavango Delta, where we are meeting with local community guides who are excited about the
Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area. This park, which I have written about extensively in this blog
(LINK TO STORIES), covers the Okavango and Zambezi watersheds, and helps the five countries of Angola, Namibia, Botswana
and Zambia adapt to climate change by managing the watersheds of these two huge river systems as a whole.
