If there ever was a Garden of Eden, the Caprivi would surely have been that garden.
The region has been blessed with Africa's most special gifts - a unique and complex network of rivers, riverine forests, flood plains, swamps and open woodlands teeming with wildlife and birdlife. Elephants, hippo and buffalo roam this pristine area. There are more than 400 bird species in the region, this represents more than 70% of the total number found in Namibia. There is the renowned Popa Falls with its series of rapids, the Mahango Game Park has the largest concentration of sable in the world, the Mudumu National Park with 100 000 ha of woodlands and wetlands. The Mamili National Park is the largest wetlands with conservation status in Namibia.
The Caprivi is such a unique and totally contrasting part of Namibia just waiting to be discovered.
Most of the lodges have boats and offer sundowner, game viewing, bird-watching and freshwater angling cruises and excursions. The eastern tip of the Caprivi is targeted especially by fly-fishermen eager to catch the challenging tiger fish. For keen photographers, especially those who want to capture an African sunset, the peaceful rivers of the north-east present endless opportunities.
