The Caprivi is a narrow strip of land in the far northeast of Namibia, about 400 kilometres long.
The Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Zambia and the Chobe National Park in Botswana, both popular tourist destinations in the north, are now easily accessible.
The abundance of water in the Caprivi region supports huge herds of game. Particularly huge is the number of elephants, although one doesn't always see them in the dense vegetation. The animals are protected in the reserves Bwabwata, Mudumu and Mamili. There is no fencing anywhere and the animals can roam freely, also into the neighboring countries Botswana and Zambia. Ideal for game safaris is the Chobe National Park south of the Caprivi in Botswana.
