Okavango Delta

Below Article from Unesco.org

This delta in north-west Botswana comprises permanent marshlands and seasonally flooded plains. It is one of the very few major interior delta systems that do not flow into a sea or ocean, with a wetland system that is almost intact. One of the unique characteristics of the site is that the annual flooding from the River Okavango occurs during the dry season, with the result that the native plants and animals have synchronized their biological cycles with these seasonal rains and floods. It is an exceptional example of the interaction between climatic, hydrological, and biological processes. The Okavango Delta is home to some of the world’s most endangered species of large mammals, such as the cheetah, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African wild dogs,s and lions.

Chobe Linyanty System

Botswana

The Chobe Linyanti area with its amazing variety of ecosystems is able to accommodate a variety of communities of plants and animals. Due to its remoteness and very little development except for limited tourism activities taking place in the area, it has retained its pristine environment. The Chobe National Park is a protected area under the Wildlife Conservation and National Parks Act of 1992, as such the wildlife in the area is well protected. The Department of Wildlife and National Parks with its effective Anti-Poaching Unit has managed to successfully protect the wildlife as shown by the decline in the number of animals lost due to poaching. Outside of the sanctuary of Chobe, northern Botswana is divided into parcels of land commonly referred to as concessions. These concession areas only offer non-consumptive tourism activities such as photography and very few lodges and campsites
