The Delta, created by the flood waters of the Okavango, is so large it can be spotted from deep space like a giant hand, bringing relief to this desolate region. Little-known to the outside world until a few decades ago, this secluded 20,000 square km maze of lagoons, channels and islands forms one of the most beautiful and pristine wildlife reserves on Earth.

This is not an exhaustive documentary about the region, but rather a unique photo safari in the flooded desert.

Led by South African zoologist Liesl Eichenberger, viewers join world- renowned wildlife filmmaker Tim Liversedge, for a thrilling adventure in the flooded desert. Through stunning 3D photography, they get "up close and personal" with a great variety of big-game animals, crocodiles, hippos, elephants, and lions, and observe one of the largest bird concentrations on the planet.

At the young age of 20, Tim was hired by the Smithsonian to participate in a survey of delta. He fell in love with the Okavango and has lived there ever since. In the late sixties, he became one of the first game wardens of the Okavango. Twenty years ago, Tim's passionately held conviction that the long-term protection of wildlife habitats would require the support of the international community prompted him to interrupt his career as a game warden to become a wildlife filmmaker and to share his deep knowledge of the place with worldwide audiences. People will not care about a place they don't know. Tim believed his films could make a difference.
