Caprivi, named after a German Chancellor of the 19th century, is a thin, flat strip of land in the northeast of Namibia transcribed by the Zambezi river and bisected by the Chobe, Kwando and the Kavango rivers.
It is a sparsely populated, under-developed region bordered by Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Angola with most of the tourist activity concentrated along the rivers and extensive flood plains. There are a number of lodges that cater for all of the activities on offer in this region. In the east there is excellent game viewing with accommodation along the Chobe River with the majestic Victoria Falls a day trip away.
Fishing is a Caprivi religion; tiger fish, tilapia, pike and yellow fish give the discerning fisherman a feast of fun with lots of fishing lodges that cater for everyone's needs. Surrounded by four National Parks, anyone looking to experience Africa as it was meant to be, will add Namibia's Caprivi strip to their itenary.
