Caprivi, or the Caprivi Strip, is a salient of Namibia that's and has been acknowledged with the aid of numerous names. The salient protrudes eastward for about 450 km from the north-jap corner of Namibia. It is bordered by using Botswana to the south, and with the aid of Angola and Zambia to the north. Its jap tip is handiest about 1 km from the borders of Zimbabwe. Within Namibia, it's far divided administratively among Kavango East and Zambezi areas. It is crossed via the Okavango; the Kwando/Chobe river forms a part of its border with Botswana; and the Zambezi river forms a part of its border with Zambia.
The strip is ready 32 km extensive, and its vicinity is barely large than the United States nation of Maryland. Its biggest settlement is Katima Mulilo, located on the point wherein the Zambezi river reaches the Strip. The vicinity is rich in natural world and has mineral assets. Of precise interest to the government of Namibia is that it gives access to the Zambezi River and is thereby a capacity buying and selling course to Africa's East Coast. However, the vagaries of the river stage, diverse rapids, the presence of Victoria Falls downstream and continued political uncertainty in the vicinity make this use of the Caprivi Strip unlikely, although it can be used for ecotourism in the future.
