Join us for the EFFA 2018 special opening night celebrations, with food, drinks and entertainment included. Opening night is presented by LUSH.

At once beautiful, heartbreaking, terrifying and triumphant, join this pivotal journey into unexplored wilderness, as impassioned scientists and intrepid explorers strive to protect Africa’s Okavango Delta from human interference. Capturing a gruelling 141-day odyssey along the Delta – one of Africa’s last remaining great wildlife habitats, and a vital source of water for Angola, Botswana and Namibia – discover new species, come face-to-face with endangered wildlife, meet remote communities and see firsthand the devastating impact of human intervention on this precious part of the world.

Despite the many setbacks and challenges faced by the expedition team, led by National Geographic Fellow Dr Steve Boyes, this unforgettable adventure proves a celebration of human triumph over adversity.
