The Central Region is edged by two deserts, the Namib desert to the West and the Kalahari to the East. Traveling north one perceives that the region is rich in mineral wealth and animal life, while southwards there is a vast plain of scrub and rock.
In the northeast of Namibia lies the Caprivi Strip, a lush contrast to the arid lands of Namibia. Riverine forests, swamplands and floodplain’s house a wide variety of ethnic groups. There is no other region in Namibia that offers such a wide diversity of animal species and the Caprivi is renowned by the bird watching community as well as nature lovers and discerning travellers.
