Each year, about 11 cubic kilometres of water spread over the 6,000–15,000 km2 (2,300–5,800 sq mi) area. Some flood-waters drain into Lake Ngami. The floods of Okavango delta originate from the floodwaters that come from the Angolan highlands especially during the rainy seasons. This delta experiences an increase in its volume of water between June to July following the rain seasons in the Angolan highlands.
