The entire water which enters the Delta is evaporated and swept away and flows in the sea and the ocean. Rains Seasonal rains are creating the Okavango. In January-February the Okavango River drains. The rainfalls from the highlands of Angola and the river flood drain 1.200 kilometres within about one month, and in the next four months the floods disperse across the 250 kilometres by 150 kilometres of the delta. The higher water temperature in the Delta contributes to accelerated sweat which evaporation and leads to a process that only at the beginning of the 20th century was known in complete. During the dry winter months of Botswana, between June and August, flood peaks as the delta swelled to threefold in length, attracting livestock from miles and producing one of Africa’s largest levels of wilderness.

The Moremi Game Reserve is situated on much of the east side of the Okavango River and it mixes fresh space with spectacular contrasts. Chiefs Island and the Moremi Tongue are some of the reserve’s famous geographical features.

This park is an astonishingly complex area, which incorporates mopane and acacia forest, flood plain and lagoons, covering 5,000 square kilometres (1.900 square mi). Just about 30% of the resource is   maritime, with the rest in the Okavango Delta. Moremi is home to almost 500 bird species, including Buffalo, Giraffe, Lion, Leopards, Garland, Ghetto, Hyaena, Chapala, Impala and the Africa’s wildlife.

It maintains the exclusive atmosphere of Chief’s Island but is far from the only great location in Moremi. Even the tiny campsites of the area are wild and animal prints can be identified in the sand. This is undoubtedly Botswana’s growing safari destination as it promises abundant habitats, vast numbers of animals, excellent views of games and special safari action. The tragic journey is all part of the experience. The experience. How does the camp sit down and watch hundreds of mammals walk around?

The climatic conditions of the Merone national park changes with the different seasons. The Water comes from the Angolan highlands flowing to Okavango River but before the water is poured here, the water has an obligatory four-to five-month travel to reach the Kalahari. As a result of the flow of water, which is always experienced around June to September, the Okavango Delta floods, exactly when the rest of the country is in a scalp and dusty dry season. This is when animals are forced to migrate to Merone causing a large increase in abundance of animal species in Moremi. Summer rains may make parts of Moremi inaccessible due to the muddy and water logged area which are breeding grounds of mosquitoes thus increase in the risk of malaria, these also affects some lodges and they are forced to stop functioning, this is mainly experienced from the month of December to February.

The native name Kgalagadi means “thirsty spot,” and local fables claim the rivers flow only once a century. The harshness is implacable; vultures swarm above a springbok, hyenas look snarls and lean and undernourished, and tiny cattle wander in a footpath. Maybe just the gemsbok, big, arid experts with distinctive horns and the ability to tackle desert warmth will really thrive here. You won’t find a lot of wildlife here, like most desert ecosystems. Fertility and water are simply not there to support a large number of wildlife living in the desert. But go wandering and you’ll find various animals, including black lions, cheetah, and hartebeest. It’s not that hard to find these creatures. Monitor the smell of water and aim for the denser savannah areas.
