Hi,

The convoy is leaving twice a day, I think 9°° and 15°° at each side, that is Divundu and Congola respectively. The convoy is traveling at between 80 and 100 km/h and takes about 2,5 to 3 h for the 200 (250?) km. The highway is good tarmac. I am not quit sure if you are allowed to travel on your own risk, but I would do it.
Greetings, Hugo

I went via Kongola and through the caprivi strip to Divundu in November 2001, there are 3 stops along the way for a few minutes each and slower vehicles were sent on ahead with their own patrol vehicles so we would catch `em up.

Yep the road is good tarmac and their is a campsite about 5 - 10Km before Kongola but no more before the strip. Just after the strip the best place to camp is a place near Divundu at the Ngepi lodge, highly recommended..

Are there many camping sites and what condition are they in and what facilities do they have - we plan to visit during March / April. We plan to travel from Zambia through Caprivi Strip to Poppa Falls with 2 or 3 4x4's. Thx

Can anyone help with travelling across Caprivi Strip. I understand it is done in convoy with an escort but where does it start and where does it end? Is there a starting point in Zambia?

What are the road conditions like?

How fast does it travel? As we are not in a very fast vehicle

We intend to do this trip in October

Speed is an issue

You definately need to find out about the speed issue as I know someone who could not go that way because of their slow vehicle, not sure how fast you need to go though.
