The Lake is in the south-western part of the Okavango Delta approximately 30 miles from the popularly known tourism town Maun. The lake flood is feed by the Kunyere River which flows through the Toteng village. Because thousands of cattle belonging to the local inhabitants were dependent on the lake for water, the drought caused much hardship. Abundant rains since then have again filled the lake, although it is much smaller than it was when Livingstone first saw it. It is rich in birdlife and contains barbel fish, which are able to survive in mud for months while the lake is dry.
Lake Ngami is a shallow lake at the southwest corner of the 4,000-square-mile (10,400-square-kilometre) Okavango Swamp in north-western Botswana. The swamp and the lake are fed by the Okavango River, which loses most of its flow through evaporation in the marshes. Lake Ngami is 3,057 feet (932 m) above sea level. When the explorer David Livingstone first sighted it in 1849, he estimated it to be more than 170 miles (275 km) in circumference, but by 1950 it had become a sea of grass, and during a severe drought in 1965–66 it dried up completely. Presently the lake is most used by the local commercial fisher men as fishing destination, regardless of the pressure; the lake remains the destination of the birding species.
