    Default gate

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "gate" could mean in the following sentence about hunting:

    In the gate of the Kalahari Desert due to the unusually rainy weather there´s a flood so the animals spreaded.

    Thanks a lot!

    I doubt this was written by a native speaker, and therefore, whether 'gate' is appropriate. It is suspect, since the writer states "...so the animals spreaded".

    And how would you correct that part (the animals spreaded)?
