Kavango & Zambezi Regions

Kavango Region
Located in North Eastern Namibia is the Kavango region, where the Okavango River flows into Namibia from Angola and carries on into the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

Runda, is the major town of the Kavango region and is home to over 60,000 inhabitants.  This is the port of call for visitors who are self driving for them to stock up on petrol and provisions and also a good stop for an overnight before continuing to the Zambezi region.
