Caprivi Strip

The Caprivi, recently renamed to the Zambezi Strip, is a narrow strip of land in the far northeast of Namibia. About 400 km long, it protrudes from the rest of the country like a finger, owns a very unique history and shares borders with 4 other countries – Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. This is the wettest region of Namibia by a great margin and consists mostly of extensive wetlands, floodplains, woodlands and rivers, like the Okavango and Zambezi. This habitat sustains a large variety of animal and bird species.

Spectacular herds of elephant, buffalo and indigenous antelope are among the highlights of any game viewing experience. The waters are also home to five-meter long crocodiles and families of hippopotamus, which venture onto the floodplains at night to feed.

Other attractions include Popa Falls, which are more rapids than waterfall, but nonetheless impressive as they rage through a four-meter high rocky riverbed intrusion amongst beautiful scenery.
