Caprivi

Caprivi Region MapCaprivi region in Namibia

The Caprivi Strip is situated in the north-east of Namibia and unlike the rest of the country is blessed with good rainfalls. The name Caprivi or Caprivi Strip is still in common use although the region had been officially renamed to Zambezi in 2013.

Geography and climate of the Caprivi

The Caprivi climate is influenced by the Zambezi and Kwando River (later changes to Linyanti and further east to Chobe River). Both carry water throughout the whole year. Furthermore the Caprivi receives high rainfall from December to March.

Animal species to be found: Elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, lion, leopard, African wild dog, sable and roan antelope, waterbuck, sitatunga, lechwe, bush buck, zebra, kudu, impala and about 450 bird species.
