The higher rainfall in this northern area gives rise to lush, dense vegetation very different to that found in the rest of the country.

The Kwando & Linyanti Rivers are home to hippo and crocodile and the waters sustain many elephant in the small Mamili and Mudumu Parks. Mamili, in particular, is a birders paradise with over 430 species having been identified here. The vegetation is very similar to that of Botswana’s Okavango Delta region and is made up of dense stands of sycamore fig, jackalberry, leadwood and sausage trees in the centre of lush islands surrounded by papyrus swamps.
