The Eastern Caprivi situated in the Zambezi Province of Namibia is a narrow strip of land on the northern bank of the Chobe River, overlooking the vast floodplains of the Chobe National Park’s Puku Flats. It is divided into the 150 km² Kasika Conservancy in the west and Impalila Island in the east.
The Chobe River is home to large herds of Elephant, Buffalo and Hippo, as well as dense concentrations of other wildlife – including the rare Puku antelope – which come down to the river’s edge to drink and graze.
Impalila Island lies at the eastern extremity of the Eastern Caprivi Strip and is bounded by the converging Zambezi and Chobe Rivers and a natural channel known as the Kasai. The island is 11 kilometres long and four kilometres wide and is flanked by a number of pristine forested smaller islands and superb floodplains.
This location, at the confluence of the legendary Chobe and the mighty Zambezi Rivers is where the borders of four Countries meet: Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
