Photographer's Note

By way of a change from Ireland I thought we could revisit one of my favourite places in Namibia, Nkasa Lupala in the Caprivi Strip. This shot was taken from a boat just as the light was fading. Not long after it got dark the sounds of Bell Frogs could be heard ringing through the bush. Heaven!

In a vast arid country, Mamili (Nkasa Lupala) National Park holds the distinction of being the largest wetland area with conservation status in Namibia. The Mamili National Park was proclaimed in 1990, shortly before Namibia’s Independence. And there is much to celebrate about this wet wonderland. The 318-km2 park protects the flora and fauna living within a complex channel of reed beds, lakes and islands that make up the Linyanti swamps. During the rainy season, as much as 80% of the park can become flooded and inaccessible.
