The highly anticipated ‘Into the Okavango’ film will finally be screened over the next few months at the New Capital Cinema in Riverwalk. Directed by National Geographic Society filmmaker Neil Gelinas and featuring stunning wildlife photography and aerial views of rarely seen vistas, National Geographic Documentary Films’ Into the Okavango is a deeply moving chronicle of modern day explorers forever transformed by the adventure of a lifetime. It is also an attempt to draw the world’s attention not only to the Okavango River Basin, one of the most important areas for biodiversity conservation, but to the little known and vulnerable wilderness area in the Angolan highlands on which it depends.
“Be sure to tell your friends and grab your popcorn and enjoy this wonderful documentary featuring Angola and the Okavango Delta on the big screen. Maun, its also heading your way soon, keep an eye out for details,” the Okavango Wilderness Project posted.
