Caprivi Game Park
The Caprivi Game Park is a flat expanse of land, except for some sand hills covered with vegetation. The majority of the park is covered with broad-leafed trees such as copal wood, wild teak, and wild seringa. Because the area was not well maintained in the past, there are few tourist facilities, and there is just one road accessible to most cars. However, there are several 4x4 tracks along the Kwando River. If one wishes to view the flora and fauna of the park, a 4x4 vehicle is recommended in order to reach your destination.
Within the Game Park, several different species of animals may be sighted, due the proximity to the river. These include elephants, buffalo, lions and hippos. In addition, one may be able to view leopards, roan, kudu and other antelopes. For those who are interested in viewing unique birds, a great number of bird species can be found in the wetlands of the Caprivi Game Park.
Although there are no lodging sites available within the park, several campsites are accessible to those using a 4x4 in their travels. one precaution, which anyone visiting Namibia should take, is to be up to date with his or her malaria prevention as it is prevalent in this area. When one’s travels lead them to Namibia, a visit to the Caprivi Game Park is one site which should be at the top of their “to do” list.
