“Xhumaga village is situated on the banks of the Boteti River. This river receives it's water from the annual inundation that originates in the Angolan Highlands. The summer rains take 3-4 months to reach the Okavango Delta and then the water flows further south past Maun, thus reaching Xhumaga on the banks of the Boteti. The Boteti was dry for 30 years until 2009 when it once again started flowing. It dried up again in 2016, but started flowing in 2017. In September 2017 the Khumaga Ferry was operational, taking vehicles across the river to the entrance of the Makgadigadi National Park.” - Mietsie Visser, 2017/10/09
