    Default Flooded Orapa Game Park

    With the good rain we have been having it was great to see that Orapa Game Park also had received excellent rains, in fact it was flooded in areas.

    Great pics Pete.
    We spent MANY happy times in the Orapa game Park during our stint there.
    Glad to see good rains have fallen.

    Hi Trooper

    I am not sure how much rain has fallen in CKGR, but I would think you are going to have a muddy trip. We have close to 300mm so far this season and most of that in the last month. see https://ourbots.wordpress.com/botswa...plot-rainfall/
