Lake Ngami

South-West of the Okavango Delta, Lake Ngami occupies part of a shallow sedimentary basin. Formerly it flooded seasonally, but has been dry for several years until in 2004 when it filled. In years of flooding the Lake is highly productive and full of fish. In these times, several species of waterfowl occur in large numbers, and key threats include human disturbance and egg removal.
