Namibia Safaris- Caprivi Strip

An unspoilt wilderness atmosphere can be experienced in the Caprivi Strip, where rugged game-viewing and excellent fishing can be undertaken.

Few have experienced it’s magic and it is only a short distance from Victoria Falls

Katima Mulilo is the headquarters of the transfrontier Kaza Park – The worlds largest game park

Caprivi Strip offers:
  • fisherman’s paradise
  • boat & houseboat trips
  • game viewing in 4 parks
  • bird watching cruises
  • relaxing and chilling out
  • overnight canoe trips sleeping on sand banks

It is also a gateway to some of the best game reserves in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Most of the towns are connected by tar roads but some of the lodges and most game reserves are accessible in 4×4’s only. During the rainy season (Nov to April) this flood plain is difficult to negotiate for even short distances off the tarred roads

Travel Information

This area is crossed by two major rivers, the Zambezi River (main photo) with it’s Chobe tributary.
Further West is the Okavango and Kwando Rivers.

These rivers form the boundaries between Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, Angola and even Zimbabwe.

– Crossing these borders with their different currencies and fees is frustrating and expensive. (we can assist, if you book through us)
With so many game reserves, year round fishing and birding opportunities, the whole area is a wilderness wonderland

The Caprivi floodplain’s are part of an ancient desert which are today lush tropical bushveld and offers more affordable safari holidays then it’s neighbours do.

Tourist attractions – Caprivi Strip

* Tiger fishing on the Zambezi and year round fishing for 93 different species

* Four national parks in the Caprivi | Map of area

Mamili National Park (320 km²) on the Kwando river is a winter park, being 80% underwater during the summer rains. Buffalo and elephant herds are good. 4×4 only.

Mudumu National Park (1 000 km²) is nearby and also on the Kwando river. It is higher and drier, rich in herbivores and predators. 4×4 only

Mahangu Game Reserve (245 km²) is en route to the Okavango delta from Divundu. It seldom disappoints and is also a good birding spot. It’s also accessible in 2 wheel drive vehicles and the main road to Botswana passes through it.

Bwabwata – formerly Caprivi Game Reserve This 32km-wide caprivi park of 5 715km² extends for about 180 km from the Okavango River to the Kwando River. The main road goes straight through it and it is wiser to keep to the speed limit as elephants and game do cross unexpectedly. There are a number of camping sites and lodges (mainly near both rivers). This broad-leafed woodland is more of a game management area as the villagers who have lived here for the past thousand years still do. Buffalo Park section just before the Kavango river is the best place to view game.

Popa Game park is a tiny one on the Kavango near Divundu and the Popa Rapids

* Birding : With more than 450 species recorded in this small area, the Caprivi Strip is one of southern Africa’s top birding spots

* Caprivi is also a gateway to world-class attractions such as the Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park with more affordable accommodation

* Houseboats on the Zambezi and Okavango Rivers

Elephants move between Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe in large numbers. In the dry season they stay close to the rivers.

Wild dog, Hippo, Nile crocodile, buffalo, common impala, red lechwe, roan, sable antelope, sitatunga and tsessebe are some of the wild animals that can be found in the Caprivi

Katima Mulilo is the major centre in the Caprivi Region.

The area is highly populated with scattered settlements of subsistence farmers cultivating Mahangu and other crops, tending their cattle, or living off fresh water fish.
