Trip Report Botswana Trip Report: Savute Channel - Two years in the making.

Jump to last reply

I know that some of you have been following my blog, though wanted to share with other Fodorites one of my trip reports from this year.

Excerpt from my Trip Report:

"For the first time in roughly 28 years, the mystical Savuti Channel is flowing again. Starting at the Zibadianja Lagoon, it meanders around 100km, initially a little south and then eastwards until it spills into the Savute Marsh (Mababe Depression), a remnant of an ancient super lake. The erratic flows of the channel have been documented by explorers, film makers and photographers over the last 200 years, noting the changing dynamics of the Savute Marsh.............................

.........................................In 2007/8, the Channel started to push down the parched channel, slowly filling the water table; it would take another 2/3 years until I would witness the water entering the Marsh on the 21th February 2010. This final push has also coincided with a wet cycle. The higher levels of rainfall in the Angolan catchment areas and significant local precipitation have helping to push the water into the marsh."

Here is the link the entire report which includes a number of photos too:
