The Caprivi Strip, the thin strip of land separating Botswana and Zambia, has opened up to adventurous travelers following the end of the Angolan civil war which occasionally spilled across the border. Much of the territory between Angola and Botswana was left in an undeveloped state for the wildlife and the Bushmen tribes living there.
Unfortunately, the undeveloped nature of the area left it open to poachers, who exacted a heavy toll on the wildlife. Most people will want to overnight at Katima Mulilo, a small town with a good arts center and basic facilities, or at Rundu. The latter is the departure point for a number of game reserves, including Mahango, Mudumu and Mamili, all of which are only realistic goals on a self-drive safari and may be difficult to access after a rain. About 375 mi/600 km northeast of Windhoek.
