The lure of wild Africa is felt as you drive into the north-eastern corner of Namibia. Once called the Caprivi strip and later the Caprivi region before claiming its full African heritage, the Zambezi region is a step into the heart of the continent.
A tree-filled expanse dotted with villages and elephant caution signs welcome you. Unusually, this corridor containing the Bwabwata National Park is a protected home to both wildlife and people, ushering in a concept of coexistence, stewardship and synergy. Two smaller national parks, the Mudumu and Nkasa Rupara, lie along the Kwando waterway that becomes the Linyanti and Chobe rivers as it flows eastwards.
This is also where you'll find some of our lodges. Namushasha River Lodge & Villa looking out onto reeds and the Kwando River, Chobe River Camp in the vast flood plains of the Chobe River and Zambezi Mubala Lodge & Camp on the mighty Zambezi. They are a wilderness havens where the lethargic sound of hippos grunting floats through the air intermingling with birdsong.
Every part of the day has its own magic here, whether taking a midday siesta or joining a boat cruise along the waterways and a drive into a national park. Return to the lodge to be welcomed with smiles and sweet sherry. Savour the last streaks of sunset from the deck before darkness descends and the delicious supper aromas can no longer be ignored.
