River News and
Water Level Updates
11 May 2012
is it; the winter season has started on the Upper Zambezi. Last week the
water level at Katima Mulilo stopped rising and the great “Recede” started.
I am currently travelling by vehicle en-route to Kalizo and stopped off
in Kasane Last night to break the trip. From my veranda at Serendipity
Self Catering chalets I am busy looking over the Chobe. The River is High
and flowing quickly. This means that although the water started dropping
last week on the Zambezi there is still a lot of water coming over the
floodplains of the Caprivi and flowing into the Chobe this side.
my way to Kalizo Lodge at Kalimbeza Island tomorrow and expecting to
still see a lot of water although reports from the lodge state that the
river is dropping very quickly now. I expect the cockfish
frenzies to kick off any day now and think I may be arriving just in time
for the main action! I must admit I would be lying if I said I wasn’t
anxious to get on the water ASAP. I really can’t wait to cast my first
lure and fly into the new seasons river water. I
believe we are going to have an epic season this year!! Keep watching
this page for latest updates and Hydrographs.
