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.
