Protea Hotels Zambezi River

Caprivi Strip, Zambezi, Namibia

Just 2 km (1 mi) from Katimo Mulilo, is the town's best hotel, where the rooms spread along the banks of the Zambezi River amid colorful bougainvillea bushes and flame trees. But far from the traditional sounds of Africa, the sounds you are most likely to hear are rap, hip-hop, and hard rock from the radios in the Zambian riverside villages just across the river. It's a convenient stopover offering recently renovated, clean, comfortable, tiled rooms with windows and double doors facing the river. (Look for the Cape clawless otters playing in the river.) Food is quick and palatable, but don't hold your breath for something special. Short cruises on the river are available.
