Part of the Kalahari, and an extension of the Great Rift Valley, geological faults cause regular tremors. The Okavango Delta becomes flooded from summer rains in Angola, which form a mosaic of channels, lagoons and lakes. Waterways, grasslands and woodlands support a great diversity of fauna and flora. 32 tree species include mopane, mangosteen, rain and sausage trees, varieties of acacia and fig. Over 1000 types of plant - more than any other similarly sized park in Africa. Reed beds and large stands of Phoenix palms are particularly characteristic.
36 species of larger mammals include carnivores, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, hippo and various antelope (notablylechwe and sitatunga). Over 80 species of fish and 400 different birds - raptors, waterbirds, bush and tree dwellers and breeding colonies of Goliath heron.
