Location: Southern Africa. Namibia is an amazing country to travel it has a great diversity of landscapes and incredible wild life. Most tourists limit their trip by visiting red-sand dunes of the Namib desert, Sossusvlei, Fish River Canyon and Etosha National Park but there is so much to discover here. Northern Namibia is quite different from the rest of the country: wetlands instead of desert, giant baobab trees instead of quiver trees, hippos and crocodiles instead of meerkats and cheetahs. You won’t get a complete picture of Namibia without visiting Caprivi Strip and Kavango region.
The highlights of the Northern Namibia include Epupa Falls, a huge waterfall with impressive baobab trees on the edge; the Okavango River, the forth longest river in Africa, with hundreds of hippos chilling in there; Mahango Game Reserve, small National park with many animals including leopards and lions on the border with Botswana.
Some of the top things to do in Northern Namibia include taking a mokoro boat ride on the Okavango river to spot hippos and crocodiles; Camping at Ngepi campsite at the Okavango river where you can watch hippos and otters while having breakfast on the deck, enjoy a jungle shower or cool down swimming in the cage-pool in the river. You can also visit Ovahimba Living museum to learn more about the beautiful and friendly natives and their traditional way of living or search out the biggest baobab tree in Namibia or find a giant termite mound.
