Caprivi Eastern Tip


... is the area at the far end of the Caprivi Strip extension of northeast Namibia and is largely comprised of broad wetlands, fringed to the east by a network of forested islands and rivers.

At the very eastern tip, in the middle of the Zambezi river, lies the the point where the four countries of Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana meet.

On the southern Botswana side, the town of Kasane looks out over the wetlands.

Historically the reason to come here was to witness the huge herds of elephant which converge on these wetlands during the dry season Jul/Oct. These days, although the elephant are still here, the volume of visitor traffic and the expansion of Kasane combine to make the area much less appealing.

A couple of decent lodges are tucked away on the islands, namely Ichingo River and Impalila Island Lodge.

Also of some interest are the Zambezi Queen and Ichobezi Houseboats, which offer relatively luxurious accommodation on multiple day cruises along the Chobe river.
