    As you enter the Caprivi Strip and as you continue along it you will go through many vetinary checkpoints. The guards were all very friendly and gave us no bother at all but we had nothing to cause them concern as the only foodstuffs we were carryinig were of a non meat variety and obviously we had no livestock!!!

    Caprivi highway

    by georeiser Updated Oct 19, 2009

    Caprivi highway is a straight and direct road with asphalt paving through the long, narrow Caprivi strip. The highway was built to replace the dirt road, which was hardly passable during the rainy season. There was also a strategic reason to have a fast road in Caprivi due to the recent dispute and conflict in the region (read more about that on general tips...).

    It looks like the north eastern area along the Angolan border and the Caprivi area is more densely populated than the rest of Namibia with its villages and huts along the higway. That is of course with exception of the Game Reserves.

    The driving speed is 60 km/h inside the game reserve due to the wild animals. Roadsigns with crossing animals are everywhere. There are a lot of elephants along the road right after you pass the barrier to the game reserve.

    Bus to the Caprivi region

    by georeiser Updated Oct 11, 2009

    The "Intercape" bus company have an express line through the Caprivi strip every second day from Windhoek to Victoria Falls. Departure from Windhoek at 5.30 PM, arrival at the province capital Katima Mulio at 09.10 AM. The price is 400 N$. It's a luxury bus with OK seats and a toalet. There are some few stops on the way at petrol stations and Katima Mulilo. But you can tell the driver to stop at any place on the way.

    You will enter the Caprivi region in the morning. This is a game reserve with a lot of elephants. Have your camera ready.

    DRIVING ON THE LEFT

    Driving in Namibia is on the left hand side of the road. That’s the rule for paved roads. For salt, sand and gravel roads you drive where ever you need to in order to avoid car-killing rocks and animals. Keep a watch out for other cars coming towards you on unpaved roads. They are also trying to avoid animals and rocks which destroy instead of looking for you.
