Because of its rather higher rainfall than most other parts of Namibia, this region had the agricultural potential for the cultivation of a variety of crops, as well as for organised forestry and agroforestry, which stimulated furniture making and related industries.
The region was characterised by an extremely uneven population distribution. The interior is very sparsely inhabited, while the northernmost strip, especially along the Kavango River, has a high population concentration. The largest urban settlements were the capital Rundu and the towns of Nkurenkuru and Divundu.
Economy and infrastructure
Kavango was the region with the highest poverty level in Namibia, more than 50% of the population were classified as poor. According to the 2012 Namibia Labour Force Survey, unemployment in the Kavango Region is 29.8%. Economic activities included farming and tourism. Subsistence fishing also played a role in the nutrition of the people residing near the Kavango River.
Kavango had 323 schools with a total of 77,314 pupils.
There was a particular dearth of north-south roads in the Region, apart from the Rundu-Grootfontein main road. Rundu has a small airstrip to accommodate medium-sized tourist or cargo aircraft in daylight only. The poor condition of the roads and the long distances had a negative effect on tourism; this situation was improved by the completion of the Trans–Caprivi Highway. A major highway connecting Rundu to western Kavango and the Ohangwena and Oshikoto Regions has recently been completed.
The area is rich with life, from traditional tribes to fauna and flora. The existence of fossils and ancient footprints embedded in the rock formations add to the mystery and excitement of the Okavango River.
The Lodge is conveniently situated between Rundu and Mpungu on the Kavango Western side in Northern Namibia, which borders directly on the Kavango River between Angola and Namibia. It is currently the only proper accommodation in Kavango West.
The Lodge offers comfortable lodging, camping and many African adventures.
The company owning the Lodge is a privately owned company, duly registered in terms of the Companies Act and relevant laws of the Republic of Namibia.
The company intends to sell the immovable property, as set forth in its particulars of sale, details as follows:
