Katima Mulilo

Katima Mulilo is a relatively small town, set amid lush vegetation on the banks of the Zambezi River. The relatively new Katima Mulilo bridge has led to an increase in development but there is much to be done to modernise the infrastructure.
The town is the capital of the Zambezi region, and thanks to the local airport, there are signs of a growing wildlife tourism industry developing. The town offers a selection of guesthouses and a handful of hotels to use as a base for wildlife-related activities.
