In northern Namibia the Caprivi Strip stretches east along the top of Botswana and is quite unlike the rest of the country. It receives high rainfall, has lush vegetation and rich and diverse wildlife. The Okavango and Kwando Rivers snake across the Strip giving rise to waterfalls, rapids and swamps. Fertile soils support many small villages with children herding goats and cows, often all over the road. There are a number of national parks in the Caprivi.

Chobe River and Eastern Caprivi The Caprivi Strip is a long panhandle enclosed by permanent water and stretching eastwards from the Kavango River to and along the Zambezi ending at the border junction of Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia called Kazungula, the place where four countries meet. This lush savannah area is bounded by the Kwando, Linyanti and Chobe River system on the southern border with Botswana.

The word "Mahangu" means "food of the local people". The region is named after the Zambezi river which forms the northern border of the region in the west, but will probably still be called the Caprivi by locals for a couple of years to come. The region is a narrow protrusion of Namibia km eastward from the Kavango Region, nudged in between Botswana, Angola and Zambia.
