Base Camp 1
This camp is located on the main channel of the Okavango River, where the waters flow fast and wide.
At 650 feet wide and 13 feet deep, the river flows for 50 miles through the Panhandle, constrained by two parallel faults in the Earth’s crust.
Birds and bats are abundant, while the dense stands of papyrus that line the banks create a difficult habitat for large animals to navigate.
