Dominated by the Okavango River, the region shares international borders with Angola in the north and Botswana in the southeast as well as domestic borders with the Caprivi, Otjozondjupa, Oshikoto and Ohangwena regions. There are two towns in Kavango, the capital Rundu, and Nkurenkuru. There are also two settlements Divundu and Ndiyona and the region hosts five different tribes.
