Episode 1. Covering the various habitats of Botswana, from the Okavango river system, through the Kalahari to theTswapong hills, situated in South Eastern Botswana. Finally up to the Chobe River system, which is considered to be one of the most prolific birding spots in Southern Africa. Episode 2. Moving down the Okavango river into the central Moremi Game Reserve, we visit the Gadikwe and Gobega lagoons where, from mid September, the breeding heronries amongst the Fig Islands in the lagoons are phenomenal. Purple herons, Squacco and Rufous-bellied herons keep to the inner thicket of these Islands, whereas the Yellow-billed and Marabou storks nest on the upper canopy. From there we travel the river southward, toward the lower end of the Okavango river to where it meets and joins up with the Boteti river just south of the town of Maun. An interesting river, dominated by livestock feeding along it's edges, there seems little room for the birder. but you'll be surprised.! Episode 3. Here we visit the woodlands surrounding the Okavango, who play host to a wide range of woodland bird species. From the Cathedral Mopane forest of the Moremi Game reserve, where the Arnots chat feeds amongst the Mopane litter and elephant roam in large herds. With the woodlands behind us, we enter the Kudakiakam grasslands, here on the pan edge, the famous Baines Baobabs stand in tall serenity, home to resident Barn owls and the occasional Lanner falcon. Nearby we visit Nxai Pan, an old relict lake bed of flat open stubby grasses. Kestrels, Black Korhaans and Kori Bustards abound. Episode 4. Generally, the vast open grasslands of Botswana are regarded as hot dry areas, but in some years the rains arrive in abundance and make dramatic changes to the whole system, resulting in water everywhere. Grasslands become huge lakebeds. Of course, this attracts a whole range of birds. Ducks, waders and other aquatic species in abundance. Narrated by Richard Randell we leave the open grasslands of central Botswana and visit the dry and sometimes rain filled pans such as Mwako and Tali pans, then onto Lake Ngami and finally into the huge and vast Makgadikgadi salt pans. Episode 5. We visit the long range of very spiritual hills in south eastern Botswana known as Tswapong. The home of the endangered Cape vulture and the Black or Verreaux's eagle, African hawk Eagle, Black sparrow-hawk and a host of other rock dwelling species. This 1200 square km mountain island has it's own microclimate. Here, uniquely in Botswana, are mists and running streams. Over millennia, rainwater, gathered on the plateau, has followed structures and carved gorges that are the hallmark of these ancient hills. Episode 6. Our final destination is the fascinating Chobe river in Kasane, regarded as one of Botswana's prime birding areas. The wide Chobe river with its riverine woodland and forest, hosts many a unique specie as does the surrounding broadleaf woodlands. It's an area with a wide variety of vegetation types, ample water and lots of big game, it's an exciting spot for the enthusiastic birder. With the magnificent river and an incredible array of bird specie it makes a wonderful ending to the series
