Average monthly extent of the Okavango Delta rainfall from: The Flow of a Lifeline. Struik, Cape Town After nearly 30 years of low flows, interspersed with occasional average flows and then the highs of and , this remarkable wetland has received record inflows in and — a hugely important event for the biodiversity of the Okavango and northern Botswana in general.
This gradual inundation is an eagerly anticipated annual phenomenon. What is truly exciting is that the water levels of were a par with those last seen in the s, primarily due to the following:.
This very special occurrence, cyclical in nature, is much needed in maintaining greater biodiversity. The annual flow regimes retain the very essence of the Okavango Delta — a veritable Garden of Eden.
The effects are fantastic, as large grassland areas and floodplains that have not been inundated for many years and even decades, become flooded, and a continued recharge of groundwater takes place.
Over the dry season April-Sept the Okavango Delta is gradually inundated with crystal clear, life-giving water. Islands are rejuvenated and distal lakes like Ngami and Mababe generally also fill.
The Selinda Spillway has now also joined up with the Savute Channel for only the second time in 30 years.
Listed below is some more specific information relating to our various concessions in the peak flow months:. Vumbura — To counter the chance of another extraordinary flood into the Vumbura area, we have constructed bund walls around the airstrip which we are confident will keep it operating dry and completely safely throughout the year.
Teams on the ground have designed a series of low level bridges and walls to also protect our camp operations at the back of house.
This will ensure that operations are disrupted as little as is possible, and in fact, the changes brought about by the re-flooded plains and channels have reawakened an extraordinary amount of life in the Vumbura Concession.
Kings Pool — Due to increased levels of groundwater, much of the riverine forest has shown considerable growth, not in new plants, but existing trees are showing more leaf and new branch growth.
Interestingly, the area seems to be benefiting from an influx of buffalo which may be arriving for those new emergent grasses along the flooded plains.
There are no logistical problems being encountered at Kings Pool as they are using the Chobe airstrip along with Duma Tau and Savuti camps.
Duma Tau — the same as Kings Pool except that the water comes right up to the front of the camp so boats can be launched from there.
The water in the Savute Channel means that DumaTau along with Savuti are enjoying fabulous game and bird viewing along that beautiful thread of water.
Savuti — The design of this camp, built during a time when the channel was bone dry, has actually resulted in a camp which has an unbelievable location right on the water of the now-flowing Savute Channel.
These new waters are teeming with fish and birds, whilst many elephant and hippo are still using the channel and adjacent forests. Xigera — This camp is in the absolute heart of the Okavango Delta, in fact, if one were to place a pin into a map to indicate the centre of the Okavango, it would not be far from Xigera.
This is the place to be in these wet years as this famous wetland has a variety of different habitats, from islands to permanently flooded areas that are so well represented here.
The airstrip at Xigera has been raised and the bund strengthened to ensure year-round access. Again, this concession is in the heart of the Okavango and species such as red lechwe are expected to increase in number, and to move on to the floodplains in increasing numbers.
This is also favourable for sitatunga as well as all the wetland birds that thrive on the extra water. Chitabe — Situated lower down the Delta, so minimal inundation is only manifested later in the year.
This area is best seen as an annually inundated zone where floodplains and grasslands get varying amounts of water each year. It is a fantastically diverse area which supports a wide variety all year round and has actually increased the numbers of general game and their predators.
The Chitabe roads have been assessed and some high quality log bridges have been built close to the camp to ensure access if the water ever reaches critical levels.
Khwai Banoka — Again, as Banoka is also situated on the periphery of the Delta the annual flows manifest as minimal inundation.
Malaria is present in all the areas in which we operate in Botswana and precautions should be taken.
Malaria is transmitted by a very small proportion of female Anopheles mosquitoes. This and the fact that our camps are situated in remote, low human population density areas while the malaria parasite requires a human host in order to complete its life cycle make the risk of contracting the disease slim.
Nonetheless the taking of precautions is advised. Expert opinion is divided on the best malaria prophylaxis. Please consult your physician in this regard.
If you become ill after your trip ensure that your doctor knows you have been in a malaria area and includes this fact in his diagnosis.
Malaria transmission is at its highest during the warmer and wetter months of November through to April at other times of the year the risk is significantly reduced and mosquitoes are active from early evening through the hours of darkness.
It is at these times that guests should be vigilant in terms of spraying exposed extremities with mosquito repellent and ensuring that their tents remained closed to prevent entry by mosquitoes.
