 Katima Mulilo is the Capital of the Caprivi. The town is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River and boasts shops, banks, a post office, supermarkets, clothing shops and a craft market. Most of the accommodation on offer is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River and therefore offers Tiger and Bream fishing. Beautiful sunset cruises, boating, quad biking, as well as trips to the Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls are all on offer.
 The Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls are just a few hours drive from Katima Mulilo, therefore day trips, as well as overnight excursions are available. The area is enhanced with plentiful birdlife (+- 430 species) as well as wildlife (large herds of elephants, red lechwe, hippo and crocodiles). The north-eastern region has an abundance of offers for the visitor and is truly the forgotten jewel of Namibia.
Victoria Falls
 One of the seven wonders of the world, the impressive Victoria Falls is definitely worth a visit. In full flood some 500 million litres of water cascade downwards at a speed of 100 metres per minute, causing a thunderous roar and towering columns of spray, hence the local name “mosi-u-tunya”, meaning the smoke that thunders. One of the most interesting areas to explore in Zambia lies on the shores of the Zambezi river, from the Victoria Falls area approximately 70km west towards the Kasangula border post.
Some of the most magnificent lodges are nestled in the dense bush overlooking the mighty waters. The capital, Livingstone, is home to the country’s biggest and oldest museum. Livingstone is just being discovered as an alternative to the town of Victoria Falls. More and more adventure activities are being offered, with easy access to the river banks, viewpoints and craft markets.
