Mababe depression areaWritten by ShumbAfrica in 3 months in the North Eastern Delta (Dec 2017- March 2018) on 5 May 2018 à 18:02
At the north west of Maun lays the Mababe depression. The are used to be covered by a lake a very long time ago, and due to its soil with a very high clay content, the area still fills up with a lot of water after the rains making driving there almost impossible. But fortunately, in Dec 217 when we were there, the rains hadn't really started and it been a dry week, so we managed to dry almost everywhere without getting stuck in the mud!
It is an ideal placet to observe water birds and large herds of buffaloes. Lions, wild dogs and other large predators also roam free in the area.
