The Okavango River is one of Africa’s most important bodies of water.

Instead of flowing out into the ocean, the river flows inland through Botswana and toward the Kalahari Desert.  The river creates a virtual paradise for the animals that live in the desert’s hostile environment.

NatureOkavangoRiver of Dreams is retailing for MSRP of $24.99, but can be ordered at a reduced price of $19.99 through PBS’ online store.
