Northeast Day 3 – From Kavango to Caprivi


Day 3 started with a lovely breakfast at Tambuti lodge. The garden is used to produce some nice local jams and juices. A nice start of the day…Caprivi02

…under the banana tree.Caprivi03

From the lodge through the multi-coloured and rather busy center of Rundu…Caprivi04

…and out on the B8 with all its small villages…Caprivi05

…and cattle, just wandering around…Caprivi06

…or pulling a sleigh full of building materials. On the border between the Kavango and Caprivi regions lies Divundu and shortly after that we found a small track into the bushes on the right-hand side.Caprivi07

It lead us to a small view-point overlooking the “Popa Falls”.Caprivi08

“The Popa Falls” are more “rapids” than an actual waterfall. Here the Kavango River drops some 4 meters as it passes a rocky part in small steps.

All in all it is quite a pretty sight.Caprivi10

The Popa Falls is also the beginning of what later will be the big Kavango Delta in Botswana.Caprivi11

Back on the road we were frequently warned of different kinds of wild life…Caprivi12

…and we actually saw elephants on a few occasions.Caprivi13

We reached our destination – the nice Gondwana Lodge; Namushasha – in time to watch another beautiful sunset.Caprivi14

Namushasha is located on the eastern bank of the Kwando River, 24 km south of Kongola. We heard the Hippo’s on the other side but could not see them.Caprivi15

Not a bad place for a sun-downer…Caprivi16

…and a tasty dinner to end the third day on our adventure to the north-east.

    Härligt! Det ser sig likt ut, jag var där 1997-98. Körde FN-fordon från Liqua Angola till Rundu och Caprivi-remsan för proviantering. 140 km det tog 7,5 timme genom bushen! 🙂
