Shakawe – Kavango river


In the north west of Botswana, west of the panhandle is the town Shakawe.

If you follow that road you reach the Namibian border and enter the Mahangu reserve in the Caprivi, east of Rundu.

You can camp on the banks of the river and listen to the hippos splashing in the water a few meters from your pillow..

Very little on earth beats sitting next to your fire in the quiet of the African night..
