Okavango Safari Holiday
The Okavango Delta consists of 2 distinct regions, the upper linear Pan-handle section and the lower delta-shaped alluvial fan
The seasonal variations in the water level decreases down the Panhandle and in the permanent swamps of the delta, the seasonal fluctuations in the water level are surprisingly small
Maximum flooding of the seasonal swamps occurs in July and August, some 4 – 5 months after peak discharge in the pan handle, 250 kms upstream
