Situated in the North-East of Namibia, the Caprivi is a skinny strip that stretches into Botswana and also borders Angola and Zambia. This little strip is a Wetlands paradise, filled with hippo, lion, buffalo, elephant and all kinds of wildlife. But most of all, it is one of the places to go birding, with over 400 species recorded, of which include some of the rarest birds in Africa like Pel’s Fishing Owl, Carmine Bee-eaters and Shelly’s Sunbird. Imagine stretches of savannah plains, swamps, Mpane Forests and reedy riverbanks – all lined with lush vegetation and permanent water sources – it is no wonder that wildlife, surrounded by desert, see this strip as the ideal habitat. In short, the Caprivi strip offers a discerning traveller a memorable African Safari. Not lacking in comfortable, luxurious accommodation, plentiful in activities – and a gateway to other major attractions in Africa – this is a sub-tropical experience that promises to deliver.

WHEN TO GO?

It’s best to avoid travel to the Caprivi Strip in the peak of the rainy season (January and February) as the risk of malaria increases with the water levels. Rainy season extends from November to April. The dry months of May to October are widely considered the best time of year for game viewing in Nambia and the risk of malaria is lessened.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Together with exploring one of Namibia’s finest safari destinations, fishermen will also find exciting angling opportunities with over 70 species of fish. The bird viewing is some of the best in Africa in this wetland paradise. Or kick back and enjoy a boat cruise, sipping sun-downers in the heart of wild Africa.

 

WHERE NEXT?

The splendid location of Caprivi allows easy access to game drives in nearby reserves, a quick visit to the thundering Victoria Falls and the Chobe Game Reserve in Botswana, for a quintessentially wild African luxury safari holiday.
