Katima Mulilo

Katima Mulilo

Katima Mulilo is the administrative centre of the Caprivi region of Namibia as well as the areas main settlement and a fast developing centre. The Lozi name means to quench the fire and is probably a reference to burning embers carried by travellers, which were often extinguished by the river crossing at Mbova Rapids. The town lies on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, which forms the boundary with Zambia. The town was established in 1935 by the British Colonial force to replace the previous German colonial regional capital at Schuckmannsburg.

The wide, slow-flowing Zambezi River is edged with tall, lush trees, tropical birds and monkeys, with lolling hippo and crocs reminding everyone who is in charge of the waters. Elephants are frequent visitors of the river banks for a drink and a bath, and ornithologists of all levels only have to take a short walk along the rivers banks to tick off a wide variety of species.

As you can imagine, being near the point where 5 countries meet, Katima Mulilo has a large variety of cultures and language. Seven languages and a myriad of dialects are spoken in the town. Visitors to the area can be excused for feeling that this town feels more like Zambia than Namibia, as it is the countries most remote outpost. It is 1200km from Windhoek, but only half a kilometer from Zambia! Saying that, there are a number of decent restaurants and bars, (including the ones in the nearby lodges) a post office, bank, petrol station, daily open-air market, supermarkets, and if you or your car are in need of a bit of tender loving care, there is also a hospital and garage. The Caprivi Cultural Festival is held in late September and the Caprivi Arts Centre is the place to head for your curios.

The Caprivi Art Centre is a community-based marketing outlet for artists and craftsmen in the Caprivi Region. The centre encourages local artist to explore their creativity and participate in exhibitions and workshops. Of particular interest are the beautiful clay urns these often have often made using interesting firing techniques resulting in original and intricate patterns. Also popular are the Mahangu baskets which local weavers make from the leaves of Makalani Palms. Traditionally the baskets are used for gathering and storing mahangu (maize millet), but they are beautifully made baskets which are not out of place in the most stylish of western homes.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.

They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
