Good rains for 2020/2021 season
After long dry spells with very little or sometimes no rain, open water become scarce and might disappear. This is a major influencing factor for wildlife in Africa but especially in an arid country like Namibia.
Over the past 6 years we witnessed that the Linyanti flood plains shrunk by the day. This is critical for water species like Hippo. They are forced to live much closer together which results in a lot of stress causing a high mortality rate. Hopefully the good rains so far received for the 2020/2021 season will continue and bring much needed relief.
