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.

Plan Your Trip

Due to its remoteness, Katima Mulilo can be challenging to reach, but this is also what makes it a worthwhile destination for the adventurous traveller. Particularly for self-drive visitors, access can be tricky in the Wet Season (see below). Possibly the best option is to fly into the local airport and rent a vehicle. There are a few tour operators based in the town, so letting them take care of all the logistics and transport arrangements allows visitors to enjoy the area with minimal fuss. Africa’s Eden Travel will gladly connect you with reputable local operators and accommodation providers. The key attractions in the greater area are wildlife, wilderness and birding.
