East Caprivi was a bantustan in South West Africa (present-day Namibia), intended by the apartheid government to be a self-governing homeland for the Lozi people. It was set up in 1972, in the very corner of the Namibian panhandle called Caprivi Strip. It was granted a self-governing status in 1976. The homeland was renamed Lozi soon after. Not like the other homelands in South West Africa, Lozi was directly administrated through the Department of Bantu Administration and Development in Pretoria.
Lozi, like other homelands in South West Africa, was abolished in May 1989 at the start of the transition to independence.
