Image Caption: Drought in the Kalahari and increasing demands for water have impacted the Okavango delta. The Okavango is a large inland delta; the swampy distributaries appear like a dark fan-shaped web in the middle of the light-colored desert. Compared with images taken just a few years ago, a large section of the delta distributaries now appear dry. Regional demands for the water will continue to increase. The swamps in the Okavango inland delta are home to many species of endangered African wildlife.
