Okavango Delta River Burst its Banks, 20 villages Evacuated

The famous Okavango River lost its control and flooded its banks recently causing the evacuation of over 200 families in the delta region.

The Okavango delta water is expected to continue to rise to unprecedented levels thus affecting even the tourism industry.

The ministry in charge of natural disasters has called for efforts to prevent the spread of water related illnesses and such is the case for the expected crocodiles and snakes that spread as a result of the massive floods.

The water in this famous South African river goes through Angola, Namibia and Botswana. The river is resourceful for its tourism support, irrigation as well as transport.

Botswana largely gets more tourists visiting the Okavango Delta and this may cause hindrances in Botswana safaris and tours.
