Zambezi (Caprivi) Region

The far north eastern areas of Namibia are called the Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip) & Kavango - here the dusty dry desert climate gives way to wetter, greener tropical conditions. Many of the lodges, hotels & accommodation establishments found in these areas are situated on the banks of one of the regions main rivers (the Kwando, Kavango & Zambezi) or one of their tributaries.

Activities from these establishments are often water based, with game viewing by boat and sundown river cruises being particularly popular at most lodges. The wildlife found in the area is also strikingly different to that which one would expect to find in the rest of Namibia - Here hippos and waterbuck are likely to roam past your lodge room, while crocodiles rest on sandbanks along the rivers.

The majority of our clients use our full range of car rentals in Namibia, itinerary planning and accommodation bookings when planning their self-drive | fly-drive holiday in Namibia. The easiest way to do this is to send us an email with a brief outline of what you would like to see, date of travel, accommodation requirements and any other information and one of our consultants will get back to you about arranging an itinerary.
