The Caprivi Region is located at the extreme north-eastern Namibia. It consists of the eastern Caprivi Strip and the former Eastern Caprivi Bantustan (or Lozi). 480 km long, the Caprivi region is bordered by Botswana to the south, Angola and Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the east. The county seat and largest city is Katima Mulilo.
The Caprivi region has a typical tropical climate with high temperatures and heavy rainfall during the rainy season extends from December to March, making it the wettest region of Namibia. The territory consists mainly of wetlands, floodplains, wetlands and woodlands.
There are 450 species of animals, including elephants, making the region a popular destination for hunting big game. Wildlife is protected by several natural reserves such as those Bwabwata Mudumu, Lizauli, West Caprivi Game Park, Mahango Game Reserve and National Park Mamili. The animals move freely across borders (not marked on the ground) with Botswana in the Chobe National Park. The Caprivi region is also an outstanding area for birdwatching, with nearly 70% of bird species recorded in Namibia.
The Caprivi region is drained by several perennial rivers: the Zambezi forms the border with Zambia, and pour in at the Cuando and the Chobe River forms the border with Botswana and the Linyanti. The easternmost point of the region (and Namibia) is the confluence of the Cuando and Zambezi.
