oa Madoqua - Seasonal wetlands in Ovambo and the Etosha National Park

Volume 17, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1011-5498



Wetlands in Etosha National Park and Owambo are the result of a complex endorheic drainage system and shallow basin topography. The CuveIai drainage system which is fed by relatively high annual rainfall of the central Angolan highlands, extends into northern Namibia via a maze of shallow vegetated waterways and a few major channels which eventually drain into a primary impoundment (lake Oponono) and a series of salt pans in Etosha N.P.The duration of wetland conditians is erratic and largely due to rainfall in the upper reaches of the system.
