Starting to plan a trip to Namibia for a period of 2-3 weeks. Is it worth to go all the way to Caprivi strip and spend 3-4 days over there, incl. Vic. Falls, or is it too mach a hassle ?

I recall several posts on different regions mentioning "Dennis will be going there."

So where all is Dennis going? What is the itinerary?

We spent 4 nights in the Caprivi strip in May 2005, staying at Impalila Island Lodge, and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Namibia.
