Katima Mulilo


... is a substantial town located on the south bank of the Zambezi river and serves as the capital of this eastern part of the Caprivi Strip in northeast Namibia.

The town is in a commanding position on a rise above the river and has a very pleasant central square dotted with trees. The bridge across the Zambezi north into Zambia is one of only six along the whole of its 2000km course to the Indian Ocean. There is a good range of shops and services in the town, making it a major stopping point for traffic passing through the strip.

There is very little in the way of decent accommodation in the town, with the modest Kalizo Lodge perhaps being the best bet for a stopover. To the east lie a number of simple fishing lodges, catering primarily to Namibian and South African fishermen in search of the legendary tigers that swim these waters.

We most often include Katima in trips when self-driving between Mudumu to the west and Victoria Falls to the east.
