Botswana's Timeless Wilderness

Botswana''s Timeless Wilderness 2015

Botswana's Timeless Wilderness
Big Game, Splendid Isolation

If we had to pick the most miraculous African place of all, it might well be the Okavango Delta, where the 1,000-milelong Okavango River gives up on its search for an outlet to the sea and seeps lifegivingly into the sands of one of the world's most uncompromising deserts, creating a vast and mesmerizing oasis. As Frans Lanting wrote in his elegiac book Okavango: Africa's Last Eden, "The [Delta's] very existence in the middle of the Kalahari Desert is nothing short of miraculous . . . like a dream."

Micato's private safaris ultimately prevailed over farming and forty-five years and a Stanford, Harvard and Stanford Business School graduation later, the Pintos are joined by their (well educated!) children in the runni ...
