CHOBE RIVER

go! Namibia - - GUIDE CAPRIVI STRIP -

Things to see and do? When it comes to the rivers in the Caprivi, things get com­pli­cated. The Kwando be­comes the Linyanti where it borders Botswana, which turns into the Chobe at a later stage. Even though the best part of the Chobe is in Botswana around Kasane, there is one lodge on the Namib­ian side: Camp Chobe.

If you have time, drive west to Lake Li­ambezi. The lake has run dry, but it’s still very scenic.

Will I see game? You’re not in a na­tional park, but the flood­plains are vast and an­i­mals like ele­phants of­ten wan­der over from Chobe Na­tional Park in Botswana.

How will it fit into my itin­er­ary? Overnight here on the way to Zam­bia or if you’re car­ry­ing on to the Zam­bezi in Namibia. Camp Chobe (p 124) is close to the Ngoma bor­der post.

Fuel? In Ka­tima Mulilo or Kasane (Botswana).
