After decades of warfare in the region, Namibia’s quirky Caprivi Strip is now bouncing back as both a wildlife haven and safari destination. These two facts were recently highlighted in the article Africa Forbidden Zone Now a Wildlife Wonderland at CNN Travel.
“Its attractions are manifold,” writes author Joe Yogerst. “Copious wildlife, a warren of navigable waterways, several large national parks and very few human residents. Taking a cue from the popularity of the Okavango Delta just across the border in Botswana, safari camps and lodges are gradually sprouting across the Caprivi. The lodges are still few and far between, and that’s a large part of the region’s attraction — the Caprivi area allows a feeling of really being off the grid, far removed from modern civilization and all its peccadilloes.”
African Profile Safaris is mentioned in the article as one of the companies that offers Caprivi safaris, from guided fly-in trips that feature the region’s best wilderness camps and lodges, to inexpensive self-drive safaris.
