Travel Photo of the Day (May 17)

When I first visited the Okavango Delta in Botswana I was amazed by all of the water, especially since this flooding is seasonal.  After the flooding the water will disappear due to evaporation and by draining into the sea.  And then the whole process repeats.

    I like the boats.

    True about the water it floods and then it is gone again. Near Potgietersrus S A is the Nile River. It runs under the surface(or ground). When there is a lot of rain it floods and in winter there is no water to be seen.That’s when it is dry

      That is so amazing. I would love to watch it year round and to see the changes. The more I travel and see this world, the more I am impressed by it.

    so, do you mean that this scene will look nothing like this any longer after all the water drains or evaporates? It’s difficult to believe!

      I know! I want to go back and compare. One of the guides mentioned that one of their supply trucks was stuck in the mud and they were waiting for it to dry out to get the vehicle. Hard to believe.

    Seems so beautiful… I would like to sail there but should be aligators too…Yes? Thank you dear TBM, with my love, nia

  5. It looks so peaceful with the skiffs there. I would love to sit in one of them and just float.

      We did that one morning and it was cool to travel through the reeds and water. Lots of little frogs are out on the water. You need a guide though to keep the boat upright and moving. I’m not as coordinated as them 🙂

    The reflected boats look like wooden clothes pegs!

    • TBM says:

      It was interesting when we went on a boat ride…the guides were excellent but I still felt like we would just tip over. Luckily we didn’t since I didn’t want to find out what was swimming underneath.

    I like the simplicity of the boats. It’s amazing how stark the landscape can change from flooding to dry. Great photo!
