"In a harsh, gray part of the Kalahari Desert lies an ancient river that flows into the Okavango Delta. Because of shifting plates of this tail end of African Great Rift Valley the river dried up for nearly 20 years. Flowing once again this river brings some of the the world’s cleanest water to the parched landscape. I love the way massive dazzles of zebras come down in a parade to drink. As their hooves prance on the parched earth, a cloud of dusts cloaks the air." John Banovich
