  • 🇬🇧 The clear and clean waters of the Kembo river meander gently and slowly in a steady flow through the Moxico province in the Angolan highlands - the Water Tower of Southern Africa. From here originate many other rivers that flow in an identical fashion and in all directions, swirling through unspoiled valleys, vast flooded fields covered in reeds and tall grass, surrounded by untouched Miombo forests that stretch for hundreds of kilometres. All our efforts seek to bring global awareness about the existence of this precious, vast, pure wilderness and through our expeditions, studies and observations that we share with you, we aspire to contribute to the sustainable conservation of the area for the long term benefit for Angola and the rest of the Planet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ••• 🇦🇴 As águas cristalinas e limpas do rio Kembo serpenteiam suave e lentamente num fluxo constante através da província do Moxico, no planalto de Angola - a Torre de Água da África Austral. Daqui originam-se muitos outros rios que fluem de forma idêntica e em todas as direcções, rodopiando através de vales intocados, vastos campos inundados cobertos de juncos e capim alto, rodeados por florestas de Miombo intocadas que se estendem por centenas de quilómetros. Todos os nossos esforços buscam conscientizar globalmente sobre a existência desta região selvagem tão preciosa, vasta e pura, e através das nossas expedições, estudos e observações que compartilhamos com vocês, aspiramos contribuir para a conservação sustentável desta área para o benefício a longo prazo para Angola e para o resto do Planeta.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ••• 📷 & ✏️ by @kodilu during expedition #Kembo18 & #Cuando18 for @NatGeo / @insidenatgeo @intotheokavango⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ••• #Africa #Angola #Moxico #Kembo #Intotheokavango #NatGeo #Insidenatgeo #exploration #expedition #conservation #natureconservation #adventure #river #forest #floodplains #windingriver #wilderness #miombo #travel #wildlife #delicate #mist #aerial #drone

  • Havia assumido a missão de retratar cada participante da expedição duma forma que fosse interessante para os seguidores da social media do projecto. Cada indivíduo deveria ser fotografado ou no seu habitat ou da forma como eu lhes encarava. E falhei completamente sempre que tentei retratar a @indi_mateta ou a @joycejanota. Para mim, na expedição não existia uma sem a outra. Era impressionante ver tamanha cumplicidade em duas pessoas que apenas se conheceram naquela viagem. Nesse dia, especialmente, enquanto uma trançava a outra, pausei e pensei: Existe melhor demonstração de sororidade que esta? No meio em que estávamos, aprendemos a importância da comunicação, de ter alguém ao lado pra confiar e do real significado de trabalho em equipe. Cada vez mais pessoas se apegam aos posts do “meus amigos contam-se nos dedos”, “nem todos são nossos”, “tenha cuidado com quem se aproxima”; e por aí vai... Não deixam de ter o seu quê de verdade, mas são sabedorias de sociedades inteiramente metropolitanas onde reina o individualismo, onde os seus antepassados já venceram juntos e agora cada um pode andar à vuvulai. Mas aqui... Em Angola... Amor e companheirismo ainda é muito importante. Ainda estamos na parte de se ajudar... Do eu sou tu... E se essas duas boqueiras não tivessem se permitido, talvez teriam a tão bonita e comedida relação laboral, porém, retratos solidários. Vocês podem estar a ver duas... Eu vejo uma. Das várias vezes em que me deixaram patar nas suas conversas, aprendi bwé, me ensinaram bwé... E só vos digo uma coisa, minhas pretas douradas: Vocês têm a solução pro mundo! #intotheokavango #cuando18

  • This project was special. I am so honored to have contributed to this incredible conservation film by @neilgelinas for National Geographic. Into the Okavango is a unique film, not only for its focus on the importance of science and wildness of the Okavango, but also for its distinct voice. This film pushed me as a visual storyteller and represents why I work in this business. Premieres this Sunday at Tribeca.

  • Welwitsch’s Bat, only the 3rd record for Angola! (3rd photo is showing this location and past records) The last record was from the 1950’s and the record before was from the 1850’s, so 60+ years since it being recorded in Angola. This is a depiction of the rarity of this species, but also how the study of natural history came to a near halt through the years of civil war. It is now time to document and protect this pristine system to understand its how unique and important it is to us all!

  • A large-spotted genet we found hanging out above our camp. Genets are about the size of a large house cat and hunt a variety of small rodents, reptiles, and insects. We saw this fellow supplementing its diet with nectar from the flowers of a sausage tree (named for its large, oblong fruit). @intotheokavango #intotheokavango #insidenatgeo #okavango18

  • EN: The access roads to the eastern side of Angola are filled with challenges as they have been through a great deal during the war. As we make our way to the Okavango you always have to face and overcome the unpredictable. This time around the trailer with the spare fuel could not handle the bumps and uneveness of the terrain. PT: O acesso para o leste de Angola está cheio de desafios causados pelos tempos difíceis durante a guerra. A medida que entramos para o Okavango, tens sempre de encarar e ultrapassar o imprevisível. Dessa vez, o trailer com os barris de combustível não aguentaram os saltos e os desníveis do terreno. #Intotheokavango #Homestay2017 #AngolanExpedition Photo by: @lee_br11_bogota

  • Photo by @coryrichards | A family of baboons sit a top a termite mound with the last light of day approaching. Termites are the builders of the Delta. With their mounds, small deposits of sediment can then collect over the millennia to form the islands that give harbor and shelter to the vast array of species that live and visit the Delta. . . . #IntotheOkavango premieres tomorrow at 9/8c!

  • Is this #oxpecker helping this rhino, or not? The rhino seemed quite frustrated by this activity and just could not settle. These species have interacted like this for millenia, so blood-sucking cannot be severe enough to illicit an adaption or even an evolutionary reaction to parasitism. The oxpeckers have to tread a fine line, but in winter there are not that many ticks in the #OkavangoDelta #intotheokavango

  • I made little rhymes and songs with the rhythm that my captain set on the river as we paddled for hours. Sometimes all you see for kilometers: water, reeds, sky. Sky, reeds, water. Then the monotony shatters. We see an animal, a bird, a flock of birds, a fish, an island, an interesting bend, a fire, magnificent clouds. And sometimes, we saw people. Strange how people always seemed out of place in this environment. And then you realise...we are also people! We’re also out of place here! And you sink back into your little seat in your modest mokoro and see again how completely out of touch human beings have become. And the sense of responsibility to look after it seeps into your soul, makes a little fire. It settles in, makes a little home in your heart. Purpose comes alive. And your life changes. And you live it for something bigger. So utterly grateful that I was invited to join these changemakers, scientists and conservationists on this important expedition. #intotheokavango #cuando18 #natgeo #natgeowild #okavango #conservation #expedition #angola #africa #river @natgeo @insidenatgeo @intotheokavango

Strangely relaxing to share coffee together this am (yes! I DO drink coffee!) without checking for predators, paddling through hippos, having honey badgers stealing our towels or hyaenas crashing our whiskey sunset pause. ♥️ you brother.

  • Pride male awakens after sunset. Sleep all day and work all night... On most game drives you spend hours with sleeping lions moving between shady trees and drinking spots. The yawning and stretching starts at sunset, and followed by the lions getting up and moving off for an evening of hunting in the moonlight. As we go to bed we hear the roars and alarm calls. The King is asserting his dominion over these pride lands secure in his position in this wilderness #intotheokavango

  • Giraffe are disappearing everywhere they exist. They are shot, caught in fences, killed and starved out of landscapes as farmers, herders, loggers and charcoal producers ring-fence and chip away at our planet's last wild places. At this time of year you can find aggregations of up to 100 giraffes walking together in a long "journey" or "tower" that straddles an entire treeline or floodplain. Other continents have lion, cheetah, elephant, leopard, hyena and rhino, but only Africa has giraffe, zebra and hippo! #intotheokavango

  • In his prime, this large male lion now finds himself living in the Mombo area of the #OkavangoDelta A bit upset at being forced to move by warthogs storming one by one into a burrow under a termite mound. He ignored the fuss until it seemed that one of the little wathogs was still out of the hole. On his way he licks his lips and gets ready for action.

  • Luanda is one of the most astonishing cities in the world with a resident population that grew 18 times during over 40 years of armed conflict that halted all urban development. Like a dam wall breaking, as if held back, these residents are racing to establish homes on the outskirts of the city. Expensive apartment building developments and vast informal settlements with no water, sanitation or garbage removal. Luanda has been an explosion of economic development and construction since 2002. We have been operating in Angola since 2014 and have seen the new Angola emerging and blossoming. Hope and excitement in the young people is encouraging, and moves to end corruption and open the country to foreign investment are building a new future #intotheokavango #Angola

  • Lion love! This incredible lioness is most likely the great granddaughter of a lioness I knew as "Ma Kubu" in the early 2000s. This lineage of mothers have kept the Kubu Pride going under extremely trying circumstances. Here she is waking up her cubs for an evening hunt in the mopane woodland to the NE of Vumbura Plains.

  • 🇦🇴 Esta aranha-lobo foi encontrada pela nossa equipe de logística dentro duma das caixa com batatas durante a expedição #Cuando18. Depois de liberá-la ilesa, dedicamos alguns minutos para fotografa-la. Estas aranhas relativamente grandes em tamanho e assustadoras na aparência, incitam medo em muitas pessoas. Foi lhes dado este nome, porque perseguem e caçam as suas presas como os lobos. Elas têm excelente visão, embora não possam mover os olhos como os humanos; elas têm que mudar a sua posição corporal para manter o olhar nas suas presas. Sua mordida é venenosa mas, felizmente, não é letal para os humanos.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ••• 🇬🇧 This Wolf Spider was found by our logistics team inside our box with potatoes during expedition #Cuando18. After releasing it unharmed we took some time to take a few macro photos of it. Relatively large in size and menacing in appearance, wolf spiders incite fear and loathing in many. Given their name because they stalk and hunt their prey like wolves do, wolf spiders are fast-moving hunters. They have excellent vision, though they cannot move their eyes like humans do; they have to change their body position to stalk their prey. Their bite is venomous but, fortunately, not lethal for humans.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ••• 📷 por @kodilu durante a expedição #Cuando18 para @NatGeo @intotheokavango⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ••• #Africa #Angola #Moxico #Intotheokavango #NatGeo #Insidenatgeo #exploration #expedition #conservation #natureconservation #adventure #spider #aranha #wolvspider #insect #wilderness #aranhalobo #travel #wildlife #venomous #nikon #nikond850 #nikkor105mm #macro

  • Three lions ftom the Kubu (Hippo) Pride in the Vumbura area of the Okavango Delta has been around since the early 2000s. "Ma Kubu" had split off from an existing or broken up pride to establish her own pride, now over 15 years old. Ma Kubu died in 2007, but the pride was strong enough to carry on. They are active and observant lions that I have seen kill buffalo and zebra, but are also very good at catching baboons and warthogs. It was great to see the new leader, most likely one of Ma Kubu's granddaughters, looking healthy and setting off for a hunt in the cool of the evening. An old buffalo died that night #intotheokavango

This unique alluvial fan is a sanctuary for regional biodiversity, and home to some of the healthiest wildlife populations in the world #intotheokavango #mombo #vumbura @insidenatgeo

  • Scientists are in disagreement about buffalo numbers in the Okavango Delta. From my experience we used to see sick buffalo quite frequently in the early 2000s with TB, pluero-pneumonia, sleeping sickness, anthrax and several other diseases culling the population.

Here they are nirth of Mombo in the permanent swamp, most likely on their way to the Duba area #intotheokavango #mombo #okavango18 @insidenatgeo
