Some 1 200km from the nation’s capital and a mere half a kilometre from the Zambian border, you’ll find Katima Mulilo, Namibia’s most easterly town of any size. Often referred to simply as Katima, this is the capital of the Zambezi region (Caprivi Strip) and it’s located on the Zambezi River’s banks - the river forms the border with Zambia at this spot. Since the opening of the Katima Mulilo Bridge in 2004, which connects the Zambian Copperbelt with the Namibian deep sea harbour at Walvis Bay, Katima Mulilo has enjoyed much growth.
