Snapshot: Storms in Africa on the Okavango River in Namibia

Storms in Africa.

This was shot on the border of Namibia and Angola on the Okavango River. I took a boat ride from my campsite in Rundu and we had to high-tail it back as this fast moving rain system moved in. I kept clicking the gorgeous sculpting of the storm clouds by the winds until the rain forced the SLR away.

If you've seen the Planet Earth show, you'll know that this river doesn't end in the sea but instead flows inland to Botswana where it spreads out as the Okavango Delta. I was here during the intense southern summer rainy season and the locals said the river was rising daily as it rushed to quench a part of the Kalahari Desert.
