Going Green: revealing the Delta's secret season
In this article, the author maintains that the Okavango Delta is a strange beast. Fed by a river that arises in the Angolan Higlands, its annual flood takes up to eight months to penetrate the furthest reaches of famous fan, by which the dry season is at its height.

The article is available in the latest issue of Africa Geographic in HOORC Library.
