The Zambezi Region, also known as the Caprivi Strip, is the name given to the long ‘finger’ of Namibia that points out from country’s northeastern corner. Bordered on all sides by some of Southern Africa’s biggest rivers, the Zambezi Region is very different from the rest of Namibia, a green slice of the northern Kalahari that supports a rich variety of wildlife and birds.
A good paved road runs the length of the strip, but you’ll need a 4×4 to explore the region’s generally underrated game parks. Though maintenance and facilities are often poor or simply absent, this in itself is part of the charm. The Zambezi Region remains one of the wildest and least developed wilderness areas in Southern Africa and is well worth the visit if rugged isolation is your thing. Though game viewing is not as prolific as in nearby Chobe or Moremi, there’s still a good chance of seeing lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo not to mention numerous hippo, crocodiles and over 400 species of birds.
