A QUICK HISTORY OF SEDUDU
This uninhabited island, which is often submerged in water for long stretches of the year, is only 5m2 in size. In the early 1990s, it became the subject of a territorial dispute between Namibia and Botswana due to imprecise wording between former colonial powers Germany and Britain about exactly where the border lay. After a tense stand-off, the International Court of Justice resolved the conflict in 1999 by ruling in Botswana’s favour. The two neighbours now enjoy peaceful relations and share the island from their respective sides.
Because Chobe National Park is unfenced, wild animals roam freely between the two countries, giving visitors a chance to see them in their natural, unfettered habitat.
