The expedition, which lasted almost four months, was attended by experts from South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Angola, who gathered information on the living conditions from the Cuito River to Botswana, and of the wild population.

The National Geographic-funded Okavango Wilderness project is a multi-year effort to research the largest Cuito river basin, the largest freshwater wetland in southern Africa, and the main source of water for one million people.

Carolina Cerqueira, who was speaking to Journalists on the sideline of the official launching of the documentary in Angola, said that the initiative has the potential to bring to the public a wealth of data and information on Angolan wildlife and the cultural way of life of the inhabitants of the region, which can be boosted and used for the Angolan cultural tourism route.
