The Okavango Delta peoples consist of five ethnic groups, each with its own ethnic identity and language. The Hambukushu, Dceriku, and Wayeyi are all Bantus who have traditionally engaged in mixed economies of millet/sorghum agriculture; fishing, hunting, and the collection of wild plant foods; and pastoralism. The Bugakhwe and ||anikwhe are Bushmen who have traditionally practised fishing, hunting, and the collection of wild plant foods; Bugakhwe utilized both forest and riverine resources while the ||anikhwe mostly focused on riverine resources.
The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta. It is formed where the Okavango River empties into the Kalahari Desert, where it creates a vast seasonal swamp and one of the most important wet lands on earth (200,000 large mammals and countless birds).
