The Caprivi, also known as Caprivi Strip is a long, skinny panhandle extending north-east from Namibia, separating Angola (to the north), Botswana (to the south), and ending near the south-western corner of Zambia.

It is an tropical, wet stretch of land, known for its typical round huts along the street.

Stay safe

Getting around in the Caprivi is an experience not to be missed. However, don't regard any warnings as a joke. Be extra cautious and careful for the Black Mamba and other deadly snakes, elephants, Hippo's and crocodiles. Many often die by snake bites, crocodiles and hippo's, but mostly by snake bites. Specially the Black Mamba and the Mozambique Spitting Cobra, are more common in this region than you may think. They strike rapidly and death is almost instant. Be extra careful, EVEN when in the premises of a lodge, or even in your room or dining area.
