On the Okavango

We just arrived in the Caprivi Strip in the far north east of Namibia. We’re staying at the Nunda River Lodge on the banks of the Okavango River, tough view from the bar huh? We have two weeks left on our three month Namibian visa and plan to have some r&r time after all the travelling so we’ll be at this campsite for at least a week. We’ve seen so many wonderful sights in this country and I’m way behind on my blog posts but hopefully I’ll catch up while I’m here. Naturally Paul will also be working on his huge backlog of photos, he has so many extraordinary images it will be good for him to have more time to spend preparing them for sharing.
We’ll also need time to explore this amazing area. Here the Okavango has flowed out of Angola and along the border between Namibia and Angola and just 80 km downstream it flows into the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Apart from taking drives into the nearby Mahango Game Reserve we hope to see hippos passing by our campsite on the way to their feeding grounds and a sunset cruise is also on offer.

  1. Are you intending to visit Zimbabwe? If so let me know as I have a friend in Bulawayo who would, I’m sure, love to show you around. He is a keen photographer and wildlife expert and emigrated from the UK in the 1940s and has lived in Zim ever since.
