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
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.
