The Caprivi Strip is located in Namibia and is bordered by the Kwando, Linyanti, Chobe and Zambezi River and is a region of swamps and flood plains. Wildlife in the Caprivi has recovered from years of poaching, and its superb conservation areas may in the future rival Etosha. Almost 70% of the bird species found in Namibia have been recorded in the Caprivi.
There are several Caprivi safari lodges in the area and activities include hiking, game-viewing safaris or a river trip in a traditional mokoro. There are also game-viewing drives in the Mamili and Mudumu National Parks. A river trip with a difference is a cruise which offers a unique game-viewing experience from the water.
