Okavango: A Journey

£31.99

Product description

The Okavango is a dynamic ecosystem that has been shaped by many natural forces. The magical trip depicted in this title illustrates the ways in which these forces influence this ever-changing environment. The Okavango Delta is captivatingly described in three sections that feature the plant and animal life of the distinctive habitats:
Air - the world of creatures that fly and swing from trees is examined from a daisy-yellow Tigermoth biplane that shares the sky with vultures and storks. 
Water - the journey continues in a small wooden dugout canoe through drooping papyrus heads and water lilies and ventures into the aquatic environment of geese, hippos and crocodiles. 
Land - the adventure concludes with a walk through the delta where we encounter mushrooms sprouting from the earth after the rains, and enjoy spectacular sightings of mammals such as antelope, elephant, lion and wild dog.

Oxfam Shop Magdalen Street

Norwich Oxfam is exceptionally large for an Oxfam Shop and we sell a large array of homeware as well as all the usual goods that you would associate with Oxfam shops. We are situated on Magdalen Street, a bustling thoroughfare near to the Cathedral at the heart of a vibrant community and close to the centre of the East Anglian City of Norwich. It is easy to get to, as many of the bus routes (including Park & Ride) go past the shop. There are at least three large car parks and a local shopping centre within walking distance.
