This young boy was playing alongside the road when we were crossing the borders between Namibia and Botswana at the Caprivi strip.
Caprivi strip is a narrow protrusion of Namibia eastwards from the Okavango Region about 450 km (280 mi), between Botswana to the south, and Angola and Zambia to the north. It went through a civil war from 1994–1999. The Caprivi conflict involved an armed conflict between the Caprivi Liberation Army (CLA) and the Namibian government. The area is rich in wildlife and has mineral resources. Of particular interest to the government of Namibia is that it gives access to the Zambezi River and thereby a potential trading route to Africa’s East Coast. However, the vagaries of the river level, various rapids, the presence of Victoria Falls downstream and continued political uncertainty in the region make this use of the Caprivi Strip unlikely, although it may be used for ecotourism in the future.
