The best birding spot in Namibia - The Caprivi Strip (now renamed Zambezi Region)

Updated: Aug 18

"With more than 450 species recorded in this small area and a reasonably good infrastructure, the Caprivi Strip is one of southern Africa's top birding spots. For birders in pursuit of Okavango specials, such as Slaty Egret and Coppery-tailed Coucal it has the distinct advantage of costing a fraction of the amount one would spend on a journey in neighbouring Botswana."


This is an extract from an excellent article written by Chis Hines for the African Bird Club on the best spots to find birds in the Caprivi Strip, Namibia, now know as the Zambezi Region. (Unfortunately the article is no longer available online)


In the article, special mention is made of 'The west bank of the Kwando River' and 'Mudumu National Park'. Mukolo Photo Tours is situated in the centre of these two hot spots. By boat we have access to the west bank along the shoreline of the Bwabwata National Park, and by car, Mudumu is a mere 20 minute drive. Since this article was written, a superb hide has been built at Mudumu on a horse-shoe channel.
