Last year 2019 , there were reports that our treasure was drying up. Botswana hasn’t been experiencing rainfalls like in the past, possibly we blame it on climate change and our semi- arid climatic conditions.
Despite the challenges that the world has been facing, with attacks such as COVID-19, Botswana has continued to experience the unconditional love of Mother Nature. Okavango Delta is listed as the World’s Heritage Site by UNESCO.
There is an ongoing inflow water from the Okavango River to the delta coming all the way to the mighty Thamalakane River. Waters coming from Rundu in Angola where it was flooding. Normally the waters reach Maun in June. Because of this inflows, the it can swell up to almost three times of its normal size.
