The Zambezi Region (previously known as the Caprivi Strip) in northern Namibia stretches for over 450 kilometres. Bordering Angola, Botswana and Zambia, it is Namibia’s most tropical region with a mosaic of woodlands, riverine forests, swamps and rivers – including the Kavango, Chobe, Kwando and Zambezi Rivers. As a result, it is home to an abundance of game and acts as a corridor for African elephants moving through to Angola. It is also home to some 430 bird species. The region is located in the heart of KAZA (the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area) where the international borders of five countries converge. Three of the Zambezi Region’s national parks i.e. the Bwabwata, Mahango and Nkasa Lupala, share international borders and waterways. And as they are on the borders with local communities which attract tourists, everyone benefits. Visitors to this area can enjoy the Popa Falls, the Living Museum of the Mafwe, as well as cultural trips to authentic and traditional villages where they can buy arts and crafts that are produced by local people using traditional methods and materials.
