For thousands of years ancestors of the Bayei (River Bushmen) have faced the
seasonal challenges of life in the Okavango, the largest delta in the world, a labyrinth
of lagoons, hidden channels and lakes covering an area of 16 000 km2. They took on
treacherous journeys in their mokoros, riding the seasonal floods from Seronga in the
northwest to Maun in the south, crossing the entire Delta – even now this journey is
still only possible by poling 248kms across a wilderness teeming with crocodiles,
hippos and other very real dangers.
Their mission? To give viewers a unique glimpse into the Delta; from wildlife to
small groups of families still living on papyrus rafts and tribesmen who still depend
on the seasonal floods and live in co-existence with wild Africa.
