The Caprivi Strip is a 280 mile long green pocket and panhandle on the northeast of Namibia stretching bordering Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the south and the natural border of the Zambezi River and Zimbabwe to the east. Fed by the running Chobe River and Zambezi River, this less-trodden part of Namibia is teeming with wildlife in an unfenced environment encouraging the migration of wildlife species that trots back and forth from neighboring parks and reserves.
Why the Caprivi Strip?
The lesser-known Caprivi Strip offers an abundance of big game viewing owing to less visitors and as a result, developments in the area, providing a more pristine environment for wildlife to thrive, helped by the continuous supply of water sources flanked by the Chobe River and the Zambezi River that borders the Caprivi Strip. This is big cat and predators territory notable for its population of lions, hyenas, african wild dogs, leopards and a preferred breeding ground for elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffalo and hippo amongst others.
