Courtesy of the National Geographic Society and National Geographic Documentary Films, the Botswana Wild Bird Trust is proud to announce public screenings of the film at New Capitol Cinemas, Riverwalk Mall.

The Okavango River Basin provides a vital source of water to about 1 million people, the world’s largest population of African elephants and significant populations of lions, cheetahs and hundreds of species of birds. However, this once unspoiled oasis is now under siege due to increasing pressure from human activity.

From National Geographic Documentary Films, Into the Okavango chronicles a team of modern-day explorers on their first epic four-month, 1,500-mile expedition across three countries to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta, one of our planet’s last wetland wildernesses.

The screenings will take place at 17h30 on the following dates:

Friday 24 May 2019

Friday 7 June 2019

Friday 21 June 2019

Friday 5 July 2019 

Tickets for the screenings will be available through Webtickets. By purchasing a ticket the cinemagoers are actually making a donation to the Botswana Wild Bird Trust in order that it can simply cover the cost of each cinema screening.

The Botswana Wild Bird Trust, a subsidiary of the Wild Bird Trust in South Africa, administers and executes the expeditions and exploration of the Okavango River Basin from its base in Maun, Botswana as part of the National Geographic Okavango Wilderness Project (NGOWP).

The NGOWP is a collaboration between the National Geographic Society and the Wild Bird Trust and has been exploring the entire Okavango River Basin from its sources high in the Angolan highlands to the sands of the Makgadigadi Pans in Botswana since 2015.
