The floods arrive, both in the Okavango Delta and the Kwando areas, after a slow path from the wet Angolan highlands thousand of kilometers away.
The paradox is obvious - the flood arrives when dust and dryness pervade and the rains have long gone. The leaves are falling off the trees the grasses are getting shorter every day and visibility is excellent.
More and more animals congregate near the
water and flood plains - a special time of the year. Water spreads into areas
where there was none the day before and the mekoro and boat trips become more
exciting as new places can be accessed. Soft early morning and evening light
combined with dust produces many photo settings.
