People and animals depend on the water of the Okavango. Both men and women go fishing in the delta. Men go out on boats and use nets. Women make basket from palm leaves and they put the paskets underwater. Then the children chase the fisch into the baskets.
The Delta attracts many different animals. Some need water to drink and others live in water. Hippopotamuses, for example, spend a lot of time resting in water. The delta can be a dangerous place for plant- eating animals. Lions, leopards ande cheetahs are never far away.
