5 Awesome African Bars (AKA Caprivi Shebeens)

5 Awesome African Bars (AKA Caprivi Shebeens)

If you find yourself motoring through the dusty thousand-mile ribbon of nothingness known as the Caprivi Strip (Namibia, Africa) you will find few things other than scattered villages, donkey carts (the Kalahari Ferrari), herds of goats and shebeens'¦lots of African shebeens.  These quaint drinking establishments are to Africa what the classic American Roadhouse is to Texas. You can saddle up nearly 24/7 to wash the dust out of your mouth, pick up a sporting woman (which in Africa can be very sporting) and possibly get in a knife fight.

While nearly identical in diminutive size, rot-gut booze selection and shabby exterior appearance, they create individuality through creative names. To wit, here are our Five Favs in no particular order from recent trips to the Dark Continent.
