Mendelsohn J, Jarvis A & Robertson T. 2013. A profile and atlas of the Cuvelai-Etosha Basin. RAISON & Gondwana Collection

This book is the result of research to collect and present all kinds of interesting information, maps and photographs about the Cuvelai Basin. This Basin is perhaps unique and largely unknown to the rest of the world. Imagine not just one river, but a vast network of river channels shared between Angola and Namibia, never reaching the sea, but rather ending in lakes and pans baked by the sun and caked in salt. This is the area of Etosha. Geologists also call the whole area the Owambo Basin, as it is intimately associated with the Ambo or Owambo people. It supports hundreds of thousands of people who live in an often magical, watery landscape crisscrossed by countless iishana channels. About 40% of all Namibians live there.

A series of 10 posters summarising key topics was also produced.
