On account of its higher rainfall than most other parts of Namibia, this region has agricultural potential with most of the agricultural activities and green schemes situated close to the water source of the mighty Okavango River. Examples include NdongaLinena, Shadikongoro, Musese, Sikondo, Shitemu, Vhungu- vhungu and Shangara. There is also potential for organised forestry and agro forestry. Examples include Ncamagoro forestry. This stimulates furniture making and related industries.Kavango is developing in-terms of tourism. The major tourist attractive areas include Mahangu,Kaudom, Sikerete Game parks and Popa Falls.Commerce and industry in the Kavango are driven by small and medium sized enterprises, active in predominantly retail trade, tourism related business and small scale manufacturing. General dealing and hawking is an important activity and is stimulated by well organised open markets throughout the region in the towns, settlements and villages.
