The Caprivi Strip is an unusual corridor extending 32 km by 105 km and standing out from the rest of Namibia. In 1884 Germany annexed the then South West Africa and seized Caprivi to get access to the Zambezi River and a route to the east coast of Africa. But this route failed because Victoria Falls lies in its path, one of the world’s largest waterfalls. In 1890 Britain agreed to slice off the Caprivi corridor from Botswana for Germany, in exchange for Zanzibar Island.
Popa Falls Game Park: The smallest game park in Namibia with excellent birding thanks to its more than 400 bird species, and exciting fishing for Broad-head Catfish and Oscillated Spiny Eel. Hippos, crocs, monkeys and antelope. It is here that the Okavango River breaks up before gradually spreading out across the Kalahari. Hop over the small rushing channels on footbridges built between islands before the water plunges over the rapids.
Mahango National Park: The greatest birdwatching area in Namibia thanks to the contrasting wetland-desert habitat, on the western side of the Okavango close to the Popa Falls. The park is only 245 square km and is part of the Bwabwata National Park. Remarkable baobabs everywhere, herds of elephants, buffalo, roan, sable and tsessebe, lions, leopard and hyena.
Bwabwata National Park: A remote, undeveloped park that was created by merging Caprivi Game Park and Mahango Game Reserve but remains an important migration route from Botswana to Angola for African elephants and some other animals. It is an unusual Protected Area as about 5,500 people live in the park.
Mudumu National Park: An important migration route from Botswana to Angola for large game species such as the African elephant. It forms a crucial 900 square km unfenced transboundary link for wildlife migration between Angola, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia, the centre of Africa’s largest conservation area, the Kavango-Zambezi Trans-Frontier Conservation Area (KaZa TFCA).
Mamili National Park (renamed to Nkasa Rupara National Park): An unfenced swampland of about 350 square km with two large islands, Nkasa and Lupala. Most of Namibia’s red lechwe, sitatunga and puku, buffalo herds, and some 430 bird species occur here! It remains undeveloped as it’s located in the country’s highest rainfall area and during the rainy season up to 80% of the Park is flooded.
Take your family on an impressive holiday to a weird skinny peninsula of land that sticks out on the Africa map between Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia –the ultimate thrill for families and friends up the Namibian West Coast!
Choose exquisite river and wetland camps and lodges where kids will feel in awe and want to run free in this vast magic wet place so take them on all the offered outings. Many of the Caprivi camps offer game drives, guided walks, boating and fishing where crocs, elephants, hippos and rare antelope thrive.
Explore the four national parks and Popa Falls then boat down a channel to find rare birds. Meet kind staff and take time to reconnect as a family in one of Africa’s most beautiful and rarely visited regions. It’s a time to be active and to be quiet, a time to chat and a time to listen. Nature beckons.
