    Default Crossing Boteti a Khumaga

    Anyone have the latest on the crossing of the Boteti at Khumaga, and what is expected in the next few weeks with the floods having reached Maun lately?

    The Boteti is dry and crossing easy ....water reached Maun last week so will reach Khumaga in August?? I do not think we will get a lot of water down there this year ...the ferry might be stranded till next year. You can always phone Tiaan's Camp for info on water levels...Heike 74848055

    Boteti had started flowing at Motopi last week, but will take a few weeks to reach Khumaga

    Good to see the water back again. Any news on the Savuti Channel or is it too late to hope for flow there as well?
