There are some good spots to see animals, but there are better parks.

There is excellent wildlife viewing in the Caprivi, from Mhango in the west, all the way to access to the Chobe National Park in the east - there is plenty of parks, wildlife and amazing to budget accommodation to choose from.

The Caprivi is very different from the rest of Namibia. It's marshes and great rivers full of hippos and crocodiles are surrounded by lush vegetation, which is home to a huge variety of birds too.

From what our guide told us, a lot of the wildlife had been hunted down during the Namibian War of Independence in the 70's and 80's. We saw far fewer wildlife than the other parks I visited. However, speaking to another tourist who had done a flyover above the Caprivi, she described it as a paradise with big herds of animals scattered over the bush.

My trip to the Zambezi Region was during my first visit to Africa and my first safari. The history and geography of the strip make it such an interesting and diverse place. Having a great guide helped a lot and I would definitely take another trip to the area!

This area is usually witnessed as a drive-through experience, as the road through the Zambezi Region splits it in half. But it is worth an extended layover, as one can have an old fashioned river safari experience. No crowds here!

There is a lot of highway (beware of elephants on the road) to travel before you reach Katima Mulilo but camping next to the beautiful river is worth it.
