      • Prairie Potholes

wetland=dambo

Would it be possible to add a tag wetland=dambo. This is used in Zambia/Zimbabwe to describe a seasonal wetland that may also be intermittent. They are often the headwaters of smaller rivers. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dambo. Dambo and vlei are often interchangeable although vlei is a South African Afrikaans word for a similar feature see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlei
