Caprivi accommodation

I am going on a trip to Namibia again in a few weeks, and have been going through some of my pictures from the last time I was there. Here are a few to show you how beautiful it is there.

Sunrise at Kalizo Lodge on the Zambezi river. Kalizo Lodge is in the Caprivi area of Namibia, in a town called Katima Mulilo.

I will be stopping there again in a few weeks time, and will hopefully get some great photos. The Kalizo Lodge website is, and it is the best place for accommodation in the Caprivi area.

Attack of the Carmine Bee eaters! This photo series is of a swarm of beautiful Carmine Bee eater birds in the Caprivi, Namibia. I was taken to the 'secret location' by my river guide from Kalizo Lodge.

If you ever want accommodation in the Caprivi, you should give Kalizo Lodge a try, they are excellent value for money. This time round, we will be camping in the Caprivi, so will be roughing it a bit, but it should be great fun.

Here are some other pictures I took when I was there last time.
