5. Caprivi

The Caprivi Strip (or Okavango Panhandle) is a narrow protrusion of Namibia stretching eastwards from the Okavango Region about 450km, and lies between Botswana to the south, and Angola and Zambia to the north.

A big attraction of the Caprivi region is that it is surrounded by four perennial rivers, the Okavango, Kwando, Chobe and the mighty Zambezi rivers. These waterfront areas combine riverine forests with vast wetlands, and are home to over 600 species of bird as well as four of the African ‘Big 5’ (less rhino). The area boasts four National Parks – Bwabwata, Mamili, Mudumu and Mahango.
