January was a stunning wet month with 20 days of rain. Our average for Letlhakane for January is 10 days. It doesn’t seem to be over either with 40mm falling overnight.
A friend of ours who guides on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans says they are full, full of water and he won’t even go there. He also claims he hasn’t seen rain like this for the last 12-15 years.
At The Plot we have had over 400mm this season so far, not bad for an area that averages at about 250mm
With all the rain the temperatures have been mild, so what a fantastic January it was.
