Zambezi Region

Zambezi Region

The lure of the area is its wild and untamed quality, which gives visitors a peek into a different side of Namibia. Perennial rivers and expansive floodplains, lush tropical vegetation, an abundance of wildlife provide for a complete change of scenery from the rest of the Namibian landscape.

Formerly referred to as the Caprivi, the Zambezi Region is a fertile wilderness of riverine forests, flood plains, swamps and open woodland created by a complex network of rivers and relatively high summer rainfall. Well over 400 of Namibia’s bird species occur in this part of the country, and the region is steadily gaining the reputation as a retreat for bird-watchers, nature lovers and specialist travellers.

The Zambezi Region consists of three national parks, the Mudumu National Park, the Bwabwata National Park and seldom visited Nkasa Rupara National Park. Each of these parks has very own characteristics, but all of them are home to a vast variety of wildlife. Notably, this region is one of the very few places in Namibia where buffalo and hippos can be seen in their natural habitat.

The Kavango River and the Zambezi River with its tributaries play a key role in the lush green wilderness, which is so unlike and in complete contrast to rest of Namibia.
