How deep does the delta in Africa get?

    The Okavango Delta in Africa is not reported as being very deep at all. As the Okavango River enters Botswanna it only averages about 4 meters deep. Most reports from around the delta place it at about meter, a meter and a half. One account says much of it is six to twelve inches (0.2-0.3 meters). I searched for a while, but there doesn’t seem to be any significant information on how deep the delta gets, mainly because it doesn’t get very deep. The delta is very flat; so when it floods in the rainy season, water simply covers a larger span of area rather than adding to depth (it ranges in area from 6,000 square kilometers to nearly 16,000 square kilometers depending on the season).
