This 10-day Namibia, Chobe, and Vic Falls Tour is a well-priced scheduled safari tour. It visits 5 x National Parks in Namibia and Botswana. Starting in Windhoek and ending in Victoria Falls.
Experience the fantastic scenery, wildlife, and cultures in Namibia and Botswana. This tour spends quite a bit of time in the Zambezi Region. The Kaza Transfrontier Park which used to be called the Caprivi Strip. This 280-mile long panhandle of Namibia has lush vegetation due to it being surrounded by 4 major rivers. Namely Chobe, Kwando Linyanti, and the mighty Zambezi. The Zambezi Region shares its borders with 4 countries. Angola, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
There are five protected areas in the region and in all of them you’ll find big game. Including water-loving species such as hippo, crocodile, sable, waterbuck, reedbuck, and buffalo. These are largely absent from the rest of Namibia. Additionally, the entire eastern Caprivi is a bird-watchers paradise with over 430 species. Nearly 70% of Namibia’s total number of bird species has been recorded in this region.
