ABOUT

The Zambezi Region, also known as the Caprivi Strip, is the name given to the little finger of Namibia that extends eastwards between Angola and Botswana all the way across to Zimbabwe and creates the only spot on the planet where four countries meet. The region lies in the middle of one of Africa’s largest and most well-known game-viewing areas. The abundance of water supplied by the Zambezi, Okavango, Kwando and Chobe Rivers sustains a large variety of animal and bird species. There are four Namibian reserves and no fences preventing the animals from moving between the countries. Visitors can enjoy abundant game-viewing opportunities and soak up the natural splendour of this scenic region.
