HOW TO GET THERE
Visitors to Namibia typically arrive at the Hosea Kutako International Airport 40 km (25 mi) from the capital, Windhoek. For self-drive visitors intending to visit Katima Mulilo, it is advisable to rent a 4×4 vehicle, as the roads in the Caprivi region where the town is situated are occasionally flooded. Many visitors to Namibia opt to join organised tours, and Africa’s Eden Travel will gladly assist in arranging this for you. Katima Mulilo is very remote, the nearest Namibian town is Rundu, some 500 km (310 mi) away, while the drive from Windhoek is 1226 km (761 mi) and will take over 12 hours. An option is to fly into one of the international airports near to Victoria Falls, from which Katima Mulilo is 211 km (131 mi). There are regular flights from Windhoek’s Eros airport, landing at Katima Mulilo Airport, but you will need to hire a taxi into town some 18 km (11 mi) away.
