Caprivi Strip

The Caprivi Strip is a thin finger of land, bordered by Angola to the north, Botswana to the south and ending in the east at Zambia, given to the Germans by the British in exchange for Zanzibar.

This area differs vastly from the rest of Namibia due to the proximity of various important river systems, This lush section of Namibia contains a variety of game not seen in the rest of the country and is considered an excellent birding destination, with up to 350 species.

The Caprivi Strip is a unique destination within Namibia with a more unique feel to it as it is more densely populated with numerous villages whose inhabitants can be seen selling various wares along the roadside.

The Caprivi is best visited by self-drive or on organised tours with all the accommodation options offering a variety of activities with trips along the rivers being a high attraction.
