I got some friends up in Angola at the moment. They left two weeks ago, not heard of anything about flooding from them when they went up Nam.

A colleague here has told me he has never seen his birth country so green as the past 2 years.
Up north flooding means kilometers of water over roads, so be aware if you do go.

I was up there last week in Ondangwa , oshakati and Oshikango.  Hundreds of houses and businesses under water. From the air you cant actually see Etosha as the whole country is an inland sea
Allways carry a map its not good to get lost and have to eat your friends

Many thousands of years ago when the climate was warmer and wetter Etosha was like the Okovango. Then the Ice Ages came and dried things up. :mwink:
