About Kwando River
Scenery, scenery and more flourishing scenery. Kwando River (also spelled Cuando River) is a thriving part of Namibia's Caprivi Strip, and we all know how utterly lush and unspoiled the Caprivi region is! A taste of the Kwando River gives you a front-row seat to some prime game viewing and spectacular views. The Kwando gets two thumbs up from us.

You'll find that the Kwando River actually flows through both Angola and Namibia. Not just Namibia. It actually also stretches into the Linyanti Swamp on the northern border of Botswana.

The Kwando River's waterways are no stranger to a boat-load of wildlife - hippo's being part of the Kwando River family.

I bet you'll be surprised at how many national parks the river actually runs through or past. Six! Yes, six! The national parks are Coutada Publica do Luiana in Angola, Sioma Ngwezi National Park in Zambia, Chobe National Park in Botswana, and three national parks in Namibia - Bwabwata National Park, Mudumu National Park and Mamili National Park.

The river rises in Angola's central plateau on the slopes of Mount Tembo. From there it runs southeast along the Zambian border.

That's a secretary bird perched up there. It's one of the many birds you'll see in the area. The Kwando River is so lush and unspoiled because all the wildlife, birdlife and vegetation are protected. For the full length of Kwando River's run, there are game reserves and wildlife management areas that keep their inhabitants safe.
Expect a magical safari experience along the Kwando River. Oh, and be sure to get stuck into all the stargazing, bird watching, wildlife spotting and hiking you can get your hands on to make sure you make the most of your time in the wilderness. Enjoy!
The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!

I loved every millisecond of the entire trip... Guess what I did in Swakopmund? I skydived out of a plane - woohoo was that AWESOME :-)
