The Caprivi Strip allows for excellent game viewing and bird watching. Wild flowers in abundance in the rainy season as well as game fishing on three of the rivers in the north east of Namibia are possible. In some of the localities one can still experience the traditional way of life of the Caprivi.
"Our" believe is that the Caprivi is Namibia’s best hold secret!

Day 1: Windhoek - Capricorn
After arriving at Hosea Kutako International Airport, 40km outside Windhoek, we will welcome you and take you to town. After a short sight seeing tour you get the chance to do some shopping and have a relaxing lunch while we finalise the last formalities of the tour. We depart via Okahandja for the Farm Capricorn, 40km north of Otjiwarongo. There you'll be met by the Kemp Family (your hosts in Namibia). Here we will set up our camp for the first two nights. A beautiful sunset and warm Namibian Hospitality awaits you.
Day 2: Capricorn - Otjiwarongo - Capricorn
After a healthy late breakfast "Brunch" we depart to visit a crocodile farm in Otjiwarongo. In town we can still do some shopping and enjoy a light lunch at a cosy restaurant. In the afternoon we visit one of our neighbour farms where we can view big cats. A hearty Namibian dinner will be served at Capricorn while we enjoy another beautiful sunset.
Day 3: Capricorn - Roy's Camp
After breaking up our camp for the first time we enjoy a relaxing breakfast and depart for Roy's Camp at the entrance to Bushman Land. On the way we make a stop over at a small holding to taste some wine, cultivated in
the Otavi valley. Just before Grootfontein we look at the biggest meteorite known to man. 50 km north of Grootfontein we set up our camp at Roy's.
Day 4: Roy’s Camp – Tsumkwe/Sikereti
At Tsumkwe we see Bushmen and pass by some of the few traditional kraals left to them. In the Kaudom National Park we do some game viewing and a bit of sand driving. This is not a place to enter without an experienced guide to navigate the harsh terrain, as this is a remote and difficult area to drive through. In the rainy season it can prove even more difficult.
Day 5: Tsumkwe/Sikereti - Kaudom
Another fun filled day within the park. A variety of animals can be seen, like Roan, Oryx, Elephant, Lion, Wild dogs and many more. This is dependable on the time of year, as rainfall predicts here the movement of the animals to and from the Okavango Delta.
Day 6: Kaudom - Mahango
After a hearty breakfast we depart for our next campsite on the banks of the Okavango River. Mahango is a Game Park offering a wide variety of not commonly found game such as Roan, Sable, Letswe, Buffalo and many more. The afternoon is open for activities such as a boat cruise, fishing or birding on the river. On the eastern side of the river there's the Buffalo Game Park where even Wild dogs can be seen from time to time.
Day 7: Mahango - Camp Kwando
After a lazy and relaxed breakfast we depart for the Kwando River where we will spend the next two nights. Here we can also do a boat cruise with Hippo's and lots of birds around us on this very beautiful river. Other game parks in the near are Nambwa, Mamilli and Madume. We round the day off with a relaxing boat cruise on the Kwando River.
Day 8: Camp Kwando
Today we drive to the Mamilli Game Park and do some game viewing. Depending on the rain and river level, entrance may be denied. We visit a local craft market or the other game parks close to Camp Kwando. We sit down for dinner at the lodge while looking at the sun setting in the west and enjoying a sundowner.
Day 9: Camp Kwando - Popa Falls
After breaking up our camp early morning we depart for the Popa Falls. Here we swim in the Okavango river and enjoy the white beach at our new campsite.
The campsite is run by the local San people.
Day 10: Popa Falls - Rundu
With the sound of the bubbling water in the background we enjoy our breakfast and pack for the drive towards Rundu. On our way through the Kavango we see the different tribes living up here on the banks of the Okavango River. We leave the tar road to drive close to the river and see the different ways people of the region make a living.
Day 11: Rundu - Tsumeb
Waking up on the banks of the Okavango River we prepare our breakfast and break up our camp to depart for Tsumeb, an old Copper mine town in the north of Namibia. On the way we see a lot of wood carvings from the people of Kavango.
Day 12: Tsumeb - Capricorn
Today we explore this old town on foot and visit the museum. After lunch we depart for the Farm Capricorn. There you’ll be already expected by the Kemp Family. While watching the beautiful sunset the traditional sundowner will be served.
Day 13: Capricorn - Windhoek
After a relaxed breakfast we leave all the camping equipment behind and drive towards Windhoek. We visit the wood craft market in Okahandja and enjoy a light lunch in town.
