 The Kavango Basin is a remote rural region that has remained largely untouched . . . until now. ReconAfrica, a Canadian company, has recently begun prospecting for oil and gas here. Their test wells are located on the rivers that feed into the world-famous Okavango Delta. 


This unique area of biodiversity relies heavily on the river water, but also on migrating savanna elephants. Now, all this is under threat – particularly if fracking is involved. We investigate the impact of oil drilling in the region, and look at recent whistleblower allegations. Can the Okavango region still be saved?
