    Robert, I will answer in English, as per forum custom on an English thread.

    You will get diesel in Maun, Muchenje and Kasane.

    The rain is great and much needed in Botswana. But is by no means the most rain Botswana has had and really no need for panic.

    It might have stopped by the time you go or it could still be raining. The current system is already predicted to be moving away from Botswana over the weekend. So apply common sense. Don't underestimate cotton soil mud, it is nobody's friend and not a playpen. I would definitely say avoid the marsh road on the way to Savuti, but gate staff can confirm closer to the time.

    Robert, dit gaan verseker nat wees maar dit opsigself is ook n ervaring om te beleef. Die mooiste mooi om die natuur te sien net na reens. Op hiedie oomblik, voor die reen was daar feitlik geen water nie en dit is ook nie lekker nie.

    Mababe, Khwai, Savuti en Kasane is die vooruitsig so 70mm reen in die volgende paar dae.

    Maar vanmre skyn die son in Maun. Swaer donderstorm word vanmiddag voorspel.

    Gaan julle in n groep? Dit sou miskien wys wees.

    Great news, I just wish the South would get some of the rain from this system. They desperately need it!

    I really hope these areas get rain; as a farm owner with only dryland droughts stress me out. Sorry for those whose holidays are negatively affected, if any, but others have a greater need.

    Interestingly the Radar/sat image is similar but the radar is not indicating rain on the red area of the cloud hight image. Click image for larger version.

    I saw on the Kgalagadi group someone said some light drizzle.
    And the Black Nossob is starting to flow.

    Zapiture,

    Please post the rainfall figures recorded at 8am on the 6th December when you get them. Will be very interesting to see how much rain they had in the last 24 hours.

    Seems the rain is clearing up over Botswana, sadly.

    The rainfall figures posted is not that high, I thought it would be more. Much much more is needed.
