The Kavango and Zambezi feel wild and untamed. Visitors to the area get a glimpse into authentic African lifestyles. The perennial rivers and expansive floodplains, lush tropical vegetation and absolute abundance of game and birds make the northeast a surprising contrast to the rest
of the country.


Boat trips on the Zambezi and the Chobe rivers provide exciting opportunities to view hippopotamus, elephant and crocodiles, as well as scores of antelope. Tiger fishing is also a popular activity in the area. Local villages and settlements are vibrant and visitors have the opportunity to take home baskets and wooden artefacts skillfully made by hand. A dramatic juxtaposition to the rest of arid Namibia, the wet and wild wilderness of northeastern Namibia teems with life and exciting adventures. Well over 400 of Namibia’s bird species occur in this part of the country, and the region is becoming ever-more popular amongst bird-watchers, nature lovers and specialist travellers. It is also of growing interest to scientists studying the wetlands system and its flora and fauna.
