The project director of the National Geographic Okavango Wilderness Project, John Hilton, said that not even the screening of the film in New York last year attracted as many people.
Into the Okavango chronicles a team of explorers on their epic 119-day expedition across three countries to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta. It follows the river course from the source of the Cuito in Angola, through Namibia to the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
During the nearly four months, 35 scientists from all over the world visited the area to look at various aspects of the fauna and flora, collecting and recording hundreds of species, soil and water samples. .
The documentary was first shown at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2018, and aired NG Wild on 15 December last year.
