The Okavango is a large inland delta, formed where the Okavango River reaches the central part of the of the Kalahari Desert. All the water reaching the Delta is ultimately evaporated and transpired, and does not flow into any sea or ocean, but spreads over the 6,000-15,000 km² area. This statistical significance helped the Okavango Delta secure a position as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, The Okavango River drains the summer (January–February) rainfall from the Angola highlands and the surge flows 1,200 kilometres in approximately one month. The waters then spread over the 250 km by 150 km area of the delta over the next four months (March–June). The flood peaks between June and August, during Botswana’s dry winter months, when the delta swells to three times its permanent size, attracting animals from all around and creating one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wildlife.The delta is very flat, with less than 2 metres variation in height across its 15,000 km²
