Annual Flood Graces Sedia

Annual Flood Comes Rushing Down Thamalakane River

First the Flood was starting to enter the Hippo Pool at the Old Bridge - 11:40 AM June 16th. Then it started to build-up. Soon you could see that the Flood was 'pushing.' By 4 PM that afternoon it was passing under the Old Bridge at about 1/2 cu. metres per second.

By 6:15 AM June sixteenth it passed by Sedia Riverside Hotel and was making its way quickly towards the new bridge in Maun. It was a day for children, adults, dogs, cows and donkeys - a day to celebrate on the malapo. Pula to everyone!

Pelicans Camping At Sedia Hotel - Maun

The beginning of June has brought flocks of Pelicans to Sedia Riverside Hotel. Come the end of the day, they arrive in the hundreds and hundreds. First they enjoy the thermals and show their majesty and grace in the skies. Then the Pelicans circle lower and finally they land on the banks of the Thamalakane River - to rest for the night.

The final sunlight of the day makes the scenes spectacular to watch. Some Saddle-Backed Storks are also camping with the Pelicans. We hope they continue to camp with us for a long time. We enjoy Pelicans In Residence.
