NAMIBIA SNAPSHOTS - (Caprivi Strip)

by Antonio Gil December. 13, 2013 3657 views

Caprivi, sometimes called the Caprivi Strip and formerly known as Itenge, is a narrow protrusion of Namibia eastwards from the Okavango Region about 450 km (280 mi), between Botswana to the south, and Angola andZambia to the north. Caprivi is bordered by the Okavango, Kwando, Chobe and Zambezi rivers.

Caprivi was named after German Chancellor Leo von Caprivi (in office 1890–1894), who negotiated the acquisition of the land in an 1890 exchange with the United Kingdom. Von Caprivi arranged for Caprivi to be annexed to German South-West Africa in order to give Germany access to the Zambezi River and a route to Africa's east coast, where the German colony Tanganyika was situated (the river later proved unnavigable)
