Flood waters have already completely submerged the road on the old Mababe gate side already, and are now getting very close to the Mababe / Khwai main road. The water level is unusually high, especially for so early in the season. The flood water normally only arrives here around June / July.

The waters at Mohembo, adjacent to the Caprivi Strip, have already peaked but are still percolating through the Okavango pan handle and upper pan so haven’t reached peak levels further south.

Good water currently in around the Jao concession, Xigera and south of Abu.
