Where to stay
Rundu has boomed in the last few years. The Caprivi has opened up more to tourism, and visitors need to stop over on their way there and back. Now there is a wide choice of places to stay, dotted along 30km of riverfront. Most are clearly signposted off the road, towards the river.
Many offer activities like boating on the Okavango, though note that the river here is often so low from September to December that anything except, possibly, a shallow canoe will constantly ground on the sandbanks. In short, Rundu is a super place to stop over on the way to destinations where you will want to spend more time.
