The Caprivi strip starts properly only once it enters the Bwabwata Bational Park. For many however, it is easier to also include the Kavango region, as this is the gateway to this narrow incongruous strip of land, bordered by Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. A green oasis, fed by various rivers, amongst others the Okavango, the Zambezi and the Kwando, this area teams with wildlife and almost unequalled birdlife. The entire area is either protected land in terms of being a park, or communal land and conservancies. It is the final dynamic or contrast in a country blessed by contrasts, a wetland to oppose the thirstlands and deserts.
